Therapy is a process in which you and I work together to make your life better. However, everyone’s process is different. Some clients may have longstanding difficulties that they finally want to come to terms with while others may simply want someone to talk to without being judged. Others may feel dissatisfied with their relationships while others may want to explore their career aspirations and goals. The nuances and the reasons why people come to therapy are as diverse as people themselves. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is the time to explore yourself.
Brandon's style is genuine, honest, and to the point. He is energized and inspired by the sacred role of guiding clients to a new and improved vision of themselves. This role includes coaching, teaching, cheerleading, consoling, and playing devil's advocate among other hats utilized in the therapeutic relationship. Brandon works with clients using a tailored approach that incorporates humanistic and psychodynamic modalities. Ultimately, Brandon believes in meeting you exactly where you are at using warmth, compassion, intellect, and good common sense to support you on your personal journey.
