Brian Loveless AMFT
associate MFT in CA
I work with kids, teens, adults, couples and families. My goal is to create a safe, trusting, and uplifting environment for my clients to grow, gain insight and make meaningful change. Through collaboration, I feel that we all have the ability to heal from our pasts and learn and grow in the present. I have a strong passion for working with the LGBTQ community and I specialize in LGBTQ issues including gender identity, depression, anxiety, trauma, and body dysmorphia.
Before venturing into the world of mental health care, I ran a gymnastics program for children and teens. Here, I spent years building relationships with kids and families from all backgrounds. By creating a physically and emotionally safe environment, kids were able to learn at their own pace and feel more free to communicate their worries, fears, and struggles with self confidence and self esteem. I have also worked in a mentoring and social skills development capacity for families with children who have special needs. These experiences have also impacted my interest and training in child and adolescent psychotherapy.
