Blane Brazier, LPC-Associate, supervised by Chris Epstein, LPC-S

I am a licensed professional counselor associate supervised by Chris Epstein, licensed professional counselor supervisor. When people come to see me for assistance, they often are in a current state of emotional pain or confusion.  As I invite my patients to speak what feels unspeakable in their life and come to terms with past suffering,  hope becomes possible.  Only after establishing a safe and collaborative working relationship can we begin to understand the factors that have contributed to the present circumstances and to deepen our understanding of how these experiences affect you.

Some people who come to see me have never been in psychotherapy before.  Others have had prior experiences in treatment but find that their problems reoccur and discover that a deeper understanding of themselves may be necessary for more successful and enduring change.

After nearly 13 years working as a hospice chaplain in grief and loss support, I chose to strengthen my skills and completed a Masters in Professional Counseling from Amberton University. I am currently a fellow at the Dallas Psychoanalytic Center, training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. My training combined with life experience, I hope to give you the most nurturing space to heal and experience more freedom in life.

“There is a sense that one knows who is lost but not what is lost within. In mourning it is the world which has become poor and empty; in [complicated grief] it is me.”
