About Brian

I have had the privilege  of working as a therapist since 2001 and have worked with people struggling with a variety of difficulties over my career.  My clients generally describe me as kind, gentle, calm, and humorous.  I practice primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, but also incorporate other models to augment cognitive therapy.  I work with people with Depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and any of the anxiety disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, Agoraphobia, and Specific Phobias), and I have had clients who have been successful with each of them.  I have received training from the Milton H. Erickson Foundation in Phoenix, Arizona, and Anaheim, California as well as the International OCD Foundation.
