More About Brett Cushing

Clinical Interests:

Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, DBT, CBT, Family Systems, Adolescence, Marriage and Couples, Individual, Addictions, EMDR, Sand Tray, and Faith-based Therapy.

Clinical Approach:

I am devoted to every client’s sense of safety and trust in our relationship, where they can experience genuineness, hope and empowerment for change, healing and renewal. I draw from various approaches to therapy, based upon what is optimal for each client’s goals. I see tremendous potential in each of my client’s and count it a sincere privilege to come alongside them in their life journey.


I am an ordained minister with 20 years experience as a Senior Pastor and Family Life Pastor. Thus the on-going study of theology and psychology are hobbies of mine as well as spending time with my family, laughing as often as possible and growing personally.
