Troy Bruns


About Me

An ideal client is one who is being just who they are in spite of all the challenges or concerns they may be dealing with.

I have weekend and some evening hours.

I work as a counselor and as an instructor for SUDC students at CVTC. I have a masters degree in counseling from the University of Iowa and am credentialed with a LPC and CSAC in Wisconsin. I work with persons who have issues related to emotional well-being, whether mental health, adjustment related, substance-use related, or couple's issues.

I have worked in a private practice setting for 12 years. I have experience with emergency work at a ER (primary suicidal assessments). I have worked in substance use disorder agencies (hospitals and clinics, inpatient and outpatient, small non-profit and a few which are profit-based). I have extensive work with employee assistance counseling. I have also worked with clients with correctional issues.

Getting to understand what one is going through is a priority. Developing a working alliance with that person is essential. Patient empowerment and collaborative problem solving are cued in on.

Written by N.A. on Jul 05, 2020 after counseling with Troy for 1 month on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Troy was a large help to me as I navigated through a hard time with some difficult relationships in my life. He gave me a space to express my feelings, actively listened to them, and then provided insight that helped me see a positive perspective. After speaking with Troy, I saw myself in a much better light, which has been a mental struggle of mine. Thank you, Troy!

So far I am very happy with the service. It fits my busy life and doesnt require me to get a babysitter for a single session at the same cost.
