Hello! My name is Brandon. I'm glad you're considering seeking help for whatever you're going through in life right now. I work with clients from diverse backgrounds, working through all sorts of things ranging from depression and anxiety to trauma and grief. I am a Christian, a husband, a father, a classically trained psychotherapist, and a combat veteran, and I believe all these parts of my identity work together to produce who I am as a counselor. All clients seeking help are important to me, but I get a special sense of fulfillment in working with military veterans and first responders.
Therapy can be one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself. Therapy is a personal journey, and I am honored to be the therapist to help you expand and strengthen your insight and awareness. My goal is to help you understand yourself better, and equip you with skills to actualize your best self. My therapy style is developmental, and supportive, with a strong focus on thinking about our thinking. Together we can explore narratives, with goals of reframing into a healthier, more self-compassionate internal dialogue of self acceptance. My approaches are engaging, workable and direct.
I feel lost... No one understands me. Why am I so scared sometimes? Why am I sometimes not able to focus? Are you struggling with acceptance, bullies, disrespect, or discrimination because you identify as LBGTQIA+? Finding yourself in a meaningful and impactful way… Who are you? Is your child uncontrollable… or too withdrawn…? Does your teen need help? Do they seem depressed, anxious, or experiencing abnormal behavior? I believe that I can help you find your own unique way to make mental health a priority. Take the road less traveled and go on this journey towards your best possible self by seeking out mental health counseling.
"It is okay not to feel okay" I hear this phrase quite often nowadays and I absolutely agree. Yes! acceptance is a great first step in the right direction, and it is okay to ask for help. Whatever life difficulties you may be facing, do not give up, reach out. Therapists like myself help people struggling with a wide variety of issues; you don't have to do it alone, we can walk this journey together. Profound respect for every person and no judgment is my motto. My approach to therapy is integrative (tailored to the needs of my clients), and evidence-based (backed by scientific research).
Sometimes we just need answers…the unknown can be scary and confusing. We can struggle to feel motivated in our fear and almost paralyzed in our daily functioning. Worrying about your child? Parenting is the most difficult, yet most rewarding job of our life. Sometimes there are unknowns, and we can be insecure about our child’s individual needs and how to help them. Getting answers and help is important! Developmental, academic, cognitive, and personality testing can pinpoint specific problems in order to develop an effective plan to bring about strength and healing for you and those you love.

I work with most ages but I really love working with teens! I worked for two years as a school based therapist working with teens experiencing depression, anxiety, identity issues, self-esteem, stress, and even suicidal thoughts and self-harming behaviors. Connecting with teens comes naturally to me, and my teen clients often comment on feeling at ease and safe with me.
