Hi! My name is Paul "Chuck" Brewer and I am a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in treating depression, trauma, and stress. I performed my graduate studies at Boston College where I was trained to provide mental health and pastoral counseling using evidence-based interventions. Throughout ten years or so of providing mental health counseling, the patients/clients that I work with know that I care deeply about them and that I will walk with them through rough times.
I work from the assumption that people have strengths they can use to help get them out of ruts by making changes in their thoughts --> beliefs --> behaviors which will then have some necessary impact upon their existence. Therefore, if you are feeling stuck or confused; stressed out; lost or hurt, I will do my best to help you make new sense of these feelings and to then move forward boldly.
I encourage all of the patients/clients who I work with to live authentically, and I believe that non-judgmental and informed psychotherapy is just one way to help bring about meaning and fulfillment in our lives. If you think you could benefit from my approach to mental health counseling, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Take very good care of yourself.

In only a few weeks, I can see a great improvement in how I’m seeing myself and the issues that brought me to therapy. I love the fact that I’m not only being listened to, but I’m being challenged. So glad I was matched with this therapist! Looking forward to the work ahead.

Paul has been amazing. I’ve had two therapists before him and I just didn’t feel the same vibe with them as I do with him. He’s direct and amazing at helping me make sense of how I’m feeling and what I need. He’s an amazing guide throughout the session and helps me come to my own realizations.
