Brian has developed a special interest in understanding behavioral health challenges through a neuroscience lens. He specializes in treating depression and other mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, transitional age youth and young adults.

Brian has had the privilege of working with many strong, dynamic and brave individuals and families who made a commitment to change their circumstances and improve their lives. Through these experiences he has learned just as much as he has taught. Perhaps the greatest lesson learned is that making positive change requires ego strength. Yet when struggling, we tend to waste our energy on assigning blame, trying to change the past, or assigning negative labels to ourselves. Therefore, therapy can assist in normalizing struggles as a human condition, identifying and internalizing strengths, and facilitating a commitment to skill building and changing behavioral patterns that promote intrapersonal and interpersonal effectiveness.
