My Approach to Helping

Each session is personally tailored to you and your personal needs and will help you quickly and directly experience positive change and transformation. Also, as a trained trans-personal psychotherapist, I am able to help those who wish to grow and make positive spiritual shifts regardless of ones chosen religion or spiritual path.

More Info About My Practice


"Brent's ability to be present with whatever surfaces has been instrumental in my therapeutic process. I have felt truly held with the safety to express deep, painful feelings due to his non-judgmental and perceptive abilities. These experiences have allowed true healing of emotional wounds after finally receiving the presence and understanding that these wounds needed. In addition to his Rogerian-like presence, holding space for whatever evolves in the present spontaneously, he has a truly remarkable level of spiritual clarity and intuition. He has been a compassionate and gentle beacon for me, providing those gentle reminders of deeper truth that are easily lost in emotional and psychological turmoil. I have often come away from sessions with more clarity, serenity, and joy. I have been able to integrate previously unconscious parts of myself and come away feeling more whole."

"Brent was one of the first people to practically introduce the concept of psychotherapy into my life. He has a gift for finding the underlying cause of disturbance and then walking you through your own mind so that one can come to a realization of what is happening internally. Brent is a true listener, he is easy to talk to and can keep a neutral perspective even in the most difficult of circumstances"

*Sessions are held in the context of being non-judgemental, compassionate, empathic, straightforward, and deeply honors one's unique path.
