My name is Brian Spiegel; since I can remember I have enjoyed teaching, mentoring and, coaching. I have a unique background in crisis management, a very straight forward but non-judgmental approach in providing guidance and alternatives to one’s given situation.
My background includes: U.S. Army Veteran, former Law Enforcement Officer (15 years), Youth Alternatives and Family Crisis - Clinical Mental Health Counselor; Law Enforcement Mental Health Services and EAP Consultant/counselor. I currently have a Master’s (M.S.) degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling; and also a registered Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida.
As part of my practice I enjoy and take time to understand the client’s presenting problems in a free consultation session. Many of my clients are looking for guidance, mentoring, or learning and updating their coping and resiliency skills.
Additionally, I provide career counseling and job search techniques to specifically mentor and coach individuals looking to make career and life changes.
Other times; I am privileged to provide seminars in reference to the psycho-social issues affecting First Responders at various law enforcement agencies or to PTA meetings, about how pervasive early childhood trauma affects (children and adults) our physical and mental health throughout our life.
Often, I work with clients with issues such as Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Domestic Violence, ADHD, Complex/Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder's (CPTSD & PTSD), Burn-Out, Suicidal Ideations, Family Instability, Boundary Setting and help family by helping to restore balance in the home.
