Working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families involves a collaborative process involving all of the individuals who help a child develop, including relatives, school staff, pediatricians, and other therapists. It also involves creating a positive, upbeat, and energetic setting to foster growth and development. Utilizing techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), including mindfulness, my treatment paradigm involves evidence-based practices for a wide range of behavioral and emotional issues. I believe therapy should be proactive and not reactive, and that it must focus on strengths and not just weaknesses.

Dr. Brietzke specializes in the neuropsychological evaluation of a wide range of disorders of the brain including head injuries, ADHD, learning difficulties, emotional problems and memory disorders. The neuropsychological testing offered by Dr. Brietzke provides a more specific understanding of brain functioning than psychological, psychiatric or school-based testing does, resulting in more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment. He also integrates the cutting-edge neuroimaging and brainmapping tools with traditional neuropsychological tests. This allows for unprecedented levels of understanding of an individual's underlying brain processes and opens up many new treatment options.

During my years as a therapist, I've treated many clients who coped successfully with life's endless challenges until something happened that turned their lives upside down. Death, relationship conflicts, young adulthood struggles and other upsetting experiences cause feelings of anxiety, depression, confusion or loneliness. To strengthen people who come to me, I provide a safe, nonjudgmental relationship that frees them to express their feelings and gain a sense of direction. They know that I'll listen carefully, take them seriously and help them regain emotional stability and peace. I provide therapy online if it's helpful.

Therapy is a process and it can be difficult for people to navigate; I hope to ease the stress of this process and make life easier for you. It's incredibly hard to reach out for support when you feel at your most vulnerable or are overwhelmed. Many folks need a listening ear or an objective third-party who doesn't pass judgement...and that's where I come in. I'm here to: help you process what's going on in your life (or maybe even that deep stuff from childhood...?), offer clarity, provide coping skills, and support you.
