Brian Whitley is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a counseling practice in Irvine, California. Brian has a unique background with 11 years of experience in law enforcement. This experience included participation in several domestic violence programs, and sharing his knowledge in domestic violence with others including medical students, law enforcement, and psychology graduate students. Brian’s background gives him a real-world understanding of issues people commonly face. His approach to psychotherapy involves compassionately exploring underlying issues with his clients in order to create positive and lasting changes in their lives. He has studied Interpersonal Neurobiology in a group led by Dr. Daniel Siegel. Brian shares with his clients how their brain impacts their behavior and how their brain can be “rewired” for growth and new possibilities through the therapy process. www.Brian

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
