Kevin Brugman, LPC
All of us face difficulties or unexpected challenges at some point in our lives, and sometimes it can feel too overwhelming to manage on our own. I have a compassionate, supportive, and caring approach to counseling, and I know reaching out for help is not easy. Through the counseling process, I can help you to find some peace of mind, and develop your inner strength to move forward.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. I have over sixteen years of counseling experience. I earned my graduate degree in marriage and family counseling in California in 2005, and my wife and I moved to Texas in 2009.
My counseling style combines compassion and empathy with a solution-focused approach, utilizing various forms of mindfulness and cognitive-based therapies, such as acceptance commitment therapy, to explore how thoughts and coping styles influence how we manage our feelings. I specialize in depression, anxiety, grief, men's issues, trauma, and relationship issues; and, I help my clients to counter irrational thoughts and beliefs, assess their needs, build on their strengths, and focus on their goals.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Kevin Brugman is by far the best therapist I have had over the years-and I have had several.

Kevin is a breath of fresh air. After cycling through many different counselors over the years, I feel like I’m finally connected, growing, and being equipped with tools that are improving my mental well-being and my relationship with my wife. Kevin is patient, compassionate, non-judgemental, and brings a depth of experience to our sessions. I am so thankful he takes time for clients on BetterHelp. As a dad with two young kids, my time for counseling is limited. But thankfully for BetterHelp, I can put my kids to bed and then go back to my office for our evening session. This has been a blessing.

Kevin is smart and caring. Without his help I would never have found out what was causing my deep seated issues. He is thoughtful and well educated on ways that help my mental state.

Kevin is a great listener and helps me to reframe my challenges. I like how he enables me to see - and appreciate - situations from a different perspective. The fact that Kevin is one season in life ahead of me is also a blessing! He has great practical advice to offer in the areas of marriage and parenting.
