Brad Poser, MS, CRC

Professional Counselor Intern

Everybody struggles with feelings of self worth or discouragement. Whether from personal loss, social difficulties or bumps in our relationships, it's easy to forget these emotions are a natural part of the human experience. It's even harder to remember it's okay to ask for help when overwhelmed.

My Approach

We all get bogged down with what we ‘should do’ or worry about how we are ‘supposed to’ feel. Through no fault of our own, these thoughts can become overwhelming. We lose track of what makes us who we are, what gives us our sense of self worth. When these thoughts won’t go away, sometimes everyone needs a helping hand. Other times, we just need a break from the world and a safe place. Emotions aren't something we can easily just think our way out of. They are real. Just like any pain, they can require real attention. There is no therapeutic formula that 'fixes people.' I believe in meeting people where they are, in listening to their stories and finding their strengths.
