About Brent

Counseling is a courageous act. You’re letting a stranger into the more intimate details of your life and family. I like to let people know a little about me.

My name is Brent Sweitzer and I’m a Professional Counselor. Since 2010 I’ve been helping couples, individuals, teens and kids improve their relationships and better cope with the challenges they face. I invite you to learn more about my background and training.

What Makes Us a Good Fit?

Counseling is so much more than just talking (or in the case of children, playing). Some things that make Sweitzer Counseling unique are:

Treatment rooted in research and experience

There is a science to therapy, and I have sought training in approaches rooted in the science of change and healing. I’ve also invested considerable energy and resources in my own psychotherapy.

I seek ongoing training and consultation

Research has shown that therapists provide the best care by regularly consulting with other trusted colleagues and by getting ongoing quality training. I regularly participate in paid and peer consultation. I also invest in training rooted in cutting-edge brain research that deepens my knowledge and experience.

I utilize...

practice management software that makes it easy to securely communicate with me outside of sessions, share important documents, and schedule sessions when it’s convenient for you.
