Brandin Dear is not currently accepting new clients.

A psychiatrist once said, 'If I do not come to care for him [the patient], the therapy will not be helpful.' I believe this is true and am devoted to the collaborative relationship it takes to journey through successful treatment. I view each client as a whole and individual person with their own unique set of strengths, challenges, beliefs, and circumstances. My goal is to empower my clients to make sustainable changes in their lives that contribute to their overall health and happiness.

I largely provide cognitive behavioral and solution focused treatment. I often blend a psychodynamic approach as I find the combination highly effective. I am an interactive and directive therapist. I encourage my clients to work hard both inside and outside of the therapeutic hour.

I provide individual and couples therapy(poly couples included). I have a strong desire to treat diverse populations. I am comfortable addressing issues related to anxiety, life transitions, relationships, culture, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues. I also provide personal coaching for people wanting to make progress on specific goals in their life.
