BRIAN CURLEY, Registered Psychologist
"I always like to have a glimmer of hopefulness, even in collapse."
- Gord Downie
My journey here to Reframed began in University where I took a part-time job as a youth worker with high-risk youth. This position led me down a path that included working in addictions, as well as with a variety of adolescent forensic populations over the past 10 years. This unique and diverse population provided me with experience in adolescent development, trauma, mood and personality disorders. Further, I was granted a front row seat to witness the raw resilience demonstrated by clients from various backgrounds. Additionally, this front line work provided me with the motivation to complete a master’s degree in counselling psychology in order to continue to support those who encounter many of life’s challenges.
Beyond working with adolescent forensic populations, I have previously worked in a private clinic as a therapist with everyday adults dealing with anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, and a number of other common issues that we may face from time to time.
Why is common emphasized you may ask?
While mental health initiatives have come a long way in recent years, I believe it is still vital to normalize these experiences daily and my hope is to contribute to your mental well-being in any way I can. Whether it’s simply unloading everyday stressors and problem-solving, or dealing with depression and anxiety, please feel free to reach out, ask questions and come into our new clinic for an intake session.
