"If we can give up attachment to our roles as helpers, then maybe our clients can give up attachment to their roles as patients and we can meet as fellow souls on this incredible journey."
- Ram Dass
My name's Brenden and I'm delighted you've found your way here.
I'm a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Montana, New Mexico, and Colorado as well as a nationally certified counselor by the NBCC.
I take great honor and humility in being allowed to bear witness the pain and turmoil that far too often accompanies a person in life, inevitably holding them back from feeling like their real or best self. I’m also incredibly grateful to be in a role that facilitates and promotes the healing process that we naturally have in ourselves. To see suffering be transformed into relief and joy, confusion into clarity, loss into connection, and fear into courage time and time again is beyond fulfilling. I hold great respect for the therapeutic relationship, the power of transformative experiences, and our innate human capacities for growth and change.
My approach to guiding you on your path is very integrative, trauma informed, and centers around cultivating a deep personal transformation and healing. Through an emphasis on the somatic experience (body-centered neurophysiology), attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and mindfulness – An enhanced capacity to work through difficulty emotions grows in a safe way as the mind and body naturally integrate. With this, self-awareness grows and innate healing potentially unfolds.
Everyone I work with – from child to adult – is unique, and in turn, requires a unique relationship in order to move towards well-being. You won’t find any cookie cutter approaches to your therapy with me, as I offer my full commitment to providing an authentic and transformative therapeutic experience.
