Brian Dewyre, PCC-S. - When I entered the counseling profession over twenty years ago, my desire was to help people adjust to some of life's challenges and setbacks, while finding meaning and purpose. The therapeutic relationship is a safe venue in which one's goals can be realized, whether life coaching, healing and recovery, improving relationships, or enhancing life satisfaction. My excitement for assisting people to develop meaningful goals for fulfillment in their life situation remains a passion. I work with children, adolescents, adults of all ages, couples and families to improve the quality of their lives.
I believe in utilizing evidence based best practices to offer each person the best skillset available to help them work their personal goal. I have received specialized trainings in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT intensively trained), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR intensively trained with certification in progress), Integration Based Stress Reduction (IBSR intensively trained with certification in progress), and Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT intensively trained). Additionally I have experience working with chemical dependency and dual diagnose issues. My specialties include Life Coaching, Depression/ Mood Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Phobias, Adjustment Disorders, ADHD/ ADD, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Trauma Recovery, Anger Management, Oppositional Defiant Disorder/ Behavioral Issues, Family Systems and Functioning, Couples, and Grief and Loss issues.
I have over 20 years experience counseling adolescents, adults, couples and families who have endured such experiences as trauma, neglect and other abuses, as well as emotional and behavioral disturbances. I have expertise providing individual, group and family therapy, clinical supervision and consultation, and professional presentations and trainings.
I have presented professionally on such topics as clinical assessments, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Behavior Therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), and the effects of trauma on brain development, as well as many other professional topics.
Utilizing my extensive training in the specialized, evidence based techniques of EMDR, IBSR, DBT, TF-CBT, CBT and Behavior Therapy, my mission is to provide people with tools and resources to achieve personal goals toward a more fulfilling life.
