You’ll feel genuinely heard and validated.
Clients who work with Brian can learn to have fulfilling lives while living with mood (e.g., anxiety, depression) or personality disorders. They also can learn to successfully manage substance dependency, eating disorders and other compulsive conditions, increase their self-esteem and self-efficacy, reframe and cope more effectively with past traumatic experiences, and explore uncertainty around gender and sexuality.
Tools Brian uses in session include active listening and unconditional positive regard. Broadly he takes a humanistic approach to therapy. He also employs modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy to help people overcome self-defeating thought patterns and beliefs; Existential Theory to aid clients in developing a sense of meaning in their lives; and Motivational Interviewing.
