Brett Dixon earned his B.A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies at Salve Regina University and his M.A. in Clinical Mental Health at Lesley University. Brett works with clients of all ages and specializes in depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief and substance abuse. Brett has experience working with children in both hospital and community settings and with adults with dual diagnosis who are currently experiencing homelessness.
Brett utilizes a holistic and client centered approach to counseling, often combining mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, existential therapy and narrative therapy to help clients better understand their symptoms and find an individualized and meaningful approach to healing. He believes that healing develops through building positive relationships and works to create a safe, comfortable and open environment for all his clients (He also doesn’t mind sharing a good laugh or talking about the Red Sox either).
In addition to counseling, Brett is also trained as a mediator, has served as a meditation coach and is a published writer.
