Message from Brian

Brian (He/Him) is currently a graduate student at Baruch College – City University of New York pursuing his M.A. in Mental Health Counseling. He holds an A.A. from Southeastern Illinois College as well as a B.A. in Psychology from Brooklyn College – City University of New York. Brian did additional schooling at Murray State University in Kentucky and holds his Certification as a Reiki Master Practitioner from Tribeca Hypnosis & Healing Institute. He believes that therapy should be a collaboration between therapist and client and will do what is best for his clients. He utilizes a person-centered approach that includes aspects of CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, and humanistic methodologies in an effort to help client’s reach their goals and potential. His general areas of focus are on the LGBTQ+ community, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, neurodivergence, sex positivity, CNM, and those living with infectious disease. Brian’s favorite saying is “feelings are not facts; however, your feelings are valid.” Brian thinks that self-care is very important and that it takes many forms. As a former actor/singer, a large part of his routine is to sing whenever possible and attend the theatre whenever the opportunity presents itself. Other areas of his self-care routine are spending time with family and friends, fitness, taking walks, and watching a good comedy in efforts to not take things too seriously.

From your perspective, what is therapy?

Therapy is a place a client can feel vulnerable and share all their thoughts, concerns, and fears. I provide a non-judgmental space for my clients to be their most authentic selves. Confidentiality is of utmost importance and your well-being comes first.

How should I prepare for my first session with you?

I tell all my client's to be willing, open-minded, and vulnerable every time they walk in the door. A great way to prepare for your fist session is to take notes and be prepared to dive in. What are your hesitations and fears about therapy. Are there any reservations? Are there any topics you feel need to be focused on first? This way we can dive in and get the ball rolling as soon as possible. Remember this is your time, so let's utilize it wisely.

Do you assign homework, activities, or readings for me to do between sessions? Why or why not?

All clients are different; therefore, my approach will change with whomever I am working. There may be occasional suggestions for homework, reading, or activities. Remember these are only suggestions.

How much do you share about yourself during our time together and why?

I tend to self-disclose very little. The reason for this is that the session is about you the client and that is of utmost importance.

Are there any philosophies or values that inform your work that I should know about?

I strongly believe that feelings are not facts, but our feelings are always valid. Keeping that in mind with my clients, I try to impart upon them the validity of what we feel while having the ability to understand our perceptions are not always what they seem.
