Brian Dawson, LMSW, SSW

Are you tired of trying to avoid or escape your feelings? I won’t sugarcoat it, therapy is hard work! However, I have personally and professionally seen the lasting change it can make in a person’s life. I am ready to help you feel more joy and confidence in yourself and your relationships by providing a validating space to land when things get tough and challenging you when I see you getting stuck in unhelpful patterns. I am a believer in doing what works. I will always be thoughtful, honest, and radically genuine because I believe we all have the capacity for change!
I have over 20 years of clinical and school-based experience that helps my clients manage stressors across different environments.
I work with adult men struggling with relational/intimacy issues, anxiety, perfectionism, shame and self-criticism, and self-destructive behaviors. Together we will identify your values and develop goals beyond symptom reduction.
I also enjoy providing marriage-based intervention using tools to explore shared values, increase communication skills, understand conflict resolution, use restorative practices, and teach clients to utilize conflicts as a pathway to intimacy.
