Welcome to our website

Thank you for visiting my site! First of all, I seek to offer clients a sense of emotional safety and acceptance, whether he or she is dealing with a troubled marriage or a troubled child, whether issues arise from chronic conditions like anxiety, OCD or depression, or sudden and dramatic change of life events such as divorce, illness or loss of a loved one. I seek to assist clients in understanding the larger framework of their life situation and to establish with them reasonable, step by step goals to achieve personal growth, emotional health and relational healing.

Employing modes of mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I engage in empathic feedback and non-judgmental listening. As a Christian counselor and when the opportunity presents itself, I'm passionate about helping clients understand God's loving presence in the midst of their adversity; that "God never wastes a journey", no matter how difficult.

Offering a free 30 minute in person consultation. Feel free to call today!

About Us

Before launching his professional counseling practice, Brian served in a variety of Christian ministry settings for over 30 years. He built trusting relationships with college student leaders while working in campus ministry at Rutgers University. Brian then earned his Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and served as pastor at 3 congregations. During that time he developed weekly gatherings for both middle school and high school students, strengthening his ability to understand teenagers and establish rapport with them. Brian has also led a men’s “life transition” support group and currently serves on staff as the coordinator of counseling for Park Church in Tinton Falls, NJ. Brian also worked as substance abuse counselor at Veritas Recovery Center in South Amboy, NJ, and is familiar with the dynamics of addiction and the tools that lead to recovery.

For couples struggling with disconnection, Brian is committed to create a safe and affirming environment so couples can better understand and be understood by their partner. Employing Emotional Focus Therapy (EFT), he seeks to help couples repair damaged relationships and restore them to a healthier condition.
