I'm a licensed Pastoral Counselor and doctoral candidate (www.drjbreland.com). For over the last 18 years, I have been specializing in the treatment of individuals and couples experiencing a range of concerns, including marital discord, grief, depression, anxiety, and phase-of-life challenges. I use a personalized approach that integrates CBT as a certified clinician from the Beck Institute and the Gottman Method as a level 3 certified clinician, attachment-based, and faith-based counseling. We're a non-profit organization... So if you cant afford my services don't worry! (Matthew 10:8)
As your clinician, you can expect a partnership where the focus is on helping you find the path to a meaningful existence. To help you reach your therapeutic goals. This work is done through the completion of homework assignments, which can involve practicing new skills, restructuring distorted beliefs, and rebuilding trust through action.
It is my belief and experience that we hold the power to create a life that is satisfying and worthwhile. For that reason, my life’s goal is to help others discover the obstacles that stand in the way of their success. My expertise lies in helping couples stay together by teaching them to grow their friendship, connect emotionally, and develop a partnership.
