"I started looking at pornography online when I was 12 years old. Almost every night, I used to wait for my parents to fall asleep before creeping downstairs to the computer room. I knew something was wrong, but I didn't realize just how addicted I was until I tried to stop while I was in college. I felt like something was pulling me back to it, and I just couldn't give it up, no matter how much I wanted to. That's when, feeling ashamed and embarrassed, I decided to get some help. Brad helped me to recognize some of the events in my life that helped to create this addiction. More importantly, he gave me tools to overcome this terrible problem. I owe Brad a tremendous debt of gratitude for helping me get my life back when it seemed like there was no hope."
"I have always been shy and afraid to draw attention to myself. In a group of people I often wished I could be invisible and disappear into the walls. When I finished working with Brad, I was a different person. I was no longer shy and uncomfortable in group situations, and I became the confident person I always dreamed of becoming. I walk more confidently and I speak differently now. People comment all the time at how changed I am, and I couldn't be happier."
"My relationship with my girlfriend has totally improved since I went to see Brad for therapy. When I first entered therapy, I thought we were going to break up. She was very unhappy in our relationship, and she used to tell me I was emotionally unavailable. She was right, because I couldn't express how I was feeling. I found her to be draining and hard to take. Now after working with Brad, our relationship is better than ever, and we plan on getting married later this year."
"I was stuck in a rut in my schoolwork. I felt unmotivated and unsure about my future. My parents wanted me to be a dentist, and I sort of went along with it, but my heart wasn't in it. After working with Brad, I gained some much needed clarity about what I wanted to do with my life and discovered that my need to please others, including my parents, was getting in the way of real happiness. Now I can assert myself politely but firmly and my relationships have never been better, thanks to my work with Brad. I found the career that really interested me, and I am well on my way to getting there."
"I was depressed, and I didn't know why. I had trouble getting out of bed in the morning, and I often stayed up through the nights playing video games or watching movies. I was sleeping through class and headed for academic failure. Sometimes I just didn't know if life was worth living. Luckily, somehow I found my way into therapy. Once I started working with Brad, I realized that I had been dragging around a lot of unresolved family of origin issues that I needed to straighten out before I could face my future. I am extremely grateful to Brad for helping me to see what the issues I needed to deal with and to take action. My life is 100% different, and I am so happy."
"I was devastated after my boyfriend of 15 months broke up with me. I kept bumping into him on campus and each time I would fall to pieces. I just couldn't get my life back together. Through working with Brad, I was able to move on and start dating again. Now I am looking forward to meeting the right guy for me. I feel like I am finally ready to meet him when the time is right."
"Working with Brad opened my eyes in ways I never imagined possible. I had spent several years in therapy, and I thought I had myself pretty well figured out, but I still felt troubled and unhappy with my life. My relationships were unsatisfying, and I felt stuck in my life. I was open to trying therapy one more time, and I got really lucky with Brad. He helped me to see patterns in my life that I had been totally unaware of, and he helped me to change those patterns to healthier ones that would get me where I wanted to go. It was as if I got another chance to live the life I wanted. Thank you!"
