Brian offers individual, couples and family psychotherapy. Brian believes each person is complete and whole as they are, but have become broken by past experiences and/or current life stressors. Brian understands the need for each person to be treated in a unique manner because no two people are alike. This is why Brian is available to offer short-term and long-term psychotherapy to his clients using a holistic approach. Some individuals may need to work out a current stressor in a short period of time, while others have years of hurt and pain that need healing. Brian’s therapeutic approach is inspired by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung who believed in the concept of individuation. Individuation is the process of integrating the conscious with the unconscious, for the purpose of self-actualization. The process of individuation is a journey and psychotherapy should be looked upon as such. Unfortunately there is still a stigma surrounding mental health issues but one doesn’t have to feel “crazy” to be involved in psychotherapy. The process of psychotherapy is revealing the “you don’t know what you don’t know” and making it aware to you. It is also a process of healing past false beliefs about yourself and creating new perspectives in your life.
Brian enjoys using individualized treatment interventions that are unique to each client such as: CBT, EMDR, DBT, sandtray, psychodynamic and other expressive therapeutic interventions. As a psychotherapist Brian enjoys working with individuals with an array of life challenges ages 12 and up. Grief, depression, anxiety/fears, sexuality, LGBTQIA issues, ADHD, bipolar disorder and relationship issues are areas of interest.
