Hello, My name is Brent Coleman and I've been a licensed psychotherapist for 19 years. During that time, I've had the opportunity to work with individuals and couples on a broad range of issues ranging from depression and anxiety to sexuality and spirituality. I believe that therapy is similar to detective work: You, the client, are seeking answers to a mystery in your life- Why are things the way they are and can I do anything to make it better? My job is to assist you in figuring out the mystery that's causing you discomfort and to help you develop tools for dealing successfully with it. We do that, in part, by looking for "evidence" that may be found through you talking about yourself and looking for patterns and old beliefs that may be influencing you. There is no guarantee of where that will take us, but hopefully it leads you toward better understanding of yourself , your world and ways to deal with both. I would love to assist you in that journey of self discovery and empowerment. Let me know if I can help. Thanks.
