7 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi! I'm Brian and I'm a therapist based in Western North Carolina. I've dedicated the last decade of my life serving people in need of support to overcome a variety of issues. I care about the people I work with dearly, and this drives me to provide them with the best mental health services possible every time they show up (and sometimes when they don't). I have extensive training and experience using a variety of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, but I prioritize the therapeutic relationship above all else. I specialize in adolescent issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and men's issues. I'm a fully licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina, Vermont, and Colorado, and have a sliding scale for services because I believe everyone should have access to therapy regardless of their financial situation. If you would like to make changes in your life, or would just like to talk through something, please feel free to reach out.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

You can expect me to show up to sessions fully, attentively, and without judgment. My role as a therapist is similar to that of a personal trainer. I can’t lift weights or do exercises for you, but I can help you develop exercises for your mind so you can strengthen your emotional fitness.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Empathy is my biggest strength. If we work together, I’m going to join you in your journey. I’m going to listen to your story and feel the same emotions. We’re going to find a way forward together.
