Shawn Brndiar

LCSW LAC

HI, my name is Shawn - I have been where you are at, desperate to find a therapist I trust, so I can really be me and get to my real issues. I also know how hard it is to find that kind of space. That is why I make sure to offer all potential clients a free initial, in-person, session.

My Approach

I am passionate about working with men, gay or straight or in-between, who have achieved success or mastery in all areas of their life but not with themselves. Whether it is addiction, anxiety, perfectionism, poor relationships, trauma - we can work on this together! I work very differently than most therapists, I am not going to give you a one-size-fits-all approach that many of today's counselors provide. Every patient is unique, and the promises of a. quick-fix usually leaves you with unresolved issues that pop back up at the worst time. I am trained in multiple techniques and theories but the ones I keep going back to are very relationally driven, they open you up to deeper level work (where transformation happens), and I help you get in touch with your inherent sense of curiosity so you can develop compassion for your life story. I get to become a "fellow-traveler" on your journey of transformation. You don't have to get through your problems alone.

My Background

I received my Bachelor's of Science in Human Services and Addiction Studies and my Master of Social Work from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I am currently affiliate faculty at Metro, teaching clinical and research courses. I am also in my third year of my Ph.D. program, at the Institute of Clinical Social Work, which focuses on (for those of you who are looking for technical language) psychodynamic/psychoanalytic, developmental, and social theories. In layman's terms, I do deep, transformational work with those who have tried "counseling' and want "therapy".
