Brad is wonderful. He doesn't accept my insurance, yet my partner and I are willing to pay full price for his therapy. He makes us feel comfortable and only a couple weeks in, my fiancé and I are starting to get that spark back. I look forward to seeing him every week.

First of all, let me just say, seeing Brad is the highlight of my week =^} I reached out to Brad a couple months ago, regarding my PTSD. From our first meeting, Brad made me completely comfortable. I felt as though I were sitting across from a friend. I appreciate Brads honesty and openess! Brad let me know that I am not alone and that I don't have to carry my shame and pain anymore, that this is not the way God intended me to live. After a couple months I was controlling my PTSD and not my PTSD controlling me. Brad also involved my husband during counseling. He helped my husband understand more about my PTSD and Brad also helped me to understand my PTSD from my husbands point of view. Every session with brad, gave me hope and new insight to healing. Brad is encouraging and wise and open about his own short comings in his life. And that helped me know that he wasn't just a doctor but human too! I highly, highly recommend Brad! Whether you are a Christian or not, Brad has something other counselors don't have and that is foundational truth!!
Brad is very knowledgeable in many subjects; particularly addicitons and relationships. He has been an immense help to me in figuring out some very important life decisions. What I find different with him compared to previous counselors I've dealt with is his forthrightness, honesty and ability to explain things in a way that make sense. I feel I take what is discussed/learned and apply it to my life. He gives great feedback and I so appreciate that!
I had reached out to Brad just after the new year. I had a resolution of bettering myself, in hopes of bettering my marriage after I cheated on my husband. We were having such a hard time. Brad helped me to believe that with some dedication and some hard work I could turn my rough marriage, into something amazing! It has only been a few weeks since I've started getting his help and already I am 100% impressed. My husband of 2 years is deployed over seas and we were having a difficult time dealing with the separation and infidelity. I have never known a therapist to have a session over Skype. My husband, Brad and myself all have a session once a week for an hour and it is so awesome! So even being so far away, we can still fix things. Brad is very persistent, making sure both my husband and I are taking our steps forward, and growing together. He is so easy to talk to, I don't feel like I'm talking to a therapist, I feel like I'm talking to a friend. He understands everything, I can tell him such a complex situation and he understands and gives me great advice and great feedback. He has such dedication to couples, making sure what he does helps in all ways possible. He is determined to make sure you can be the best you can for yourself, and for your marriage. I am overall just thoroughly impressed. I will continue to go to Brad for as long as I need. I wouldn't want to go see anybody else!

Well, not sure where to start about him, really. I've talked to a lot of people in my time, but he's got to be the easiest one to talk to. Some people just nod their heads and say "uh huh", but he actually gets it. I was getting so much out of our sessions, that I thought I'd bring my husband in. As it turned out, we've been having problems we never knew we had, and we are on our way to getting better! Some people say "oh this person changed my life" but I'd be more inclined to say that he's been showing me how to change mine. I say showing because it's going to be a work in progress, but it's progress that I never thought I could make before. Thank you!
I enlisted Brad's services to help my failing marriage, and I was very pleased with the guidance which Brad provided to us. I have realized throughout the years that pastors will help teach you God's word, but they generally struggle with identifying a way to make it real and personal for individual people. Brad on the other hand has a way of taking God's word and presenting His truths in a way which makes it both relevant and specific to the unique ordeals which we are facing and struggling with in our everyday lives. Brad shows you the path and serves as a beacon when you wander in the wrong direction. I have been a born again Christian for 12 years now, and I have never felt more focused and confident than I do now that I understand exactly what God expects of me as a parent, as a husband, and as the leader of my household, and I have Brad to thank for leading me to this point.
