“You are not broken for having struggles, you are human. I promise to create a genuinely safe, supportive, empathic environment where you can talk freely and openly as you gain new perspectives and skills for self growth.”
Brian is incredibly kind and makes space for his clients to feel and talk openly. He helped me navigate complex family dynamics and gave me tools and confidence to create and maintain healthy boundaries.Anonymous

Brian Hyland, M.Ed., LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Brian believes therapy is a collaborative, team-based process with the counselor and, you, the client. You are the main character in your life story. Things happen in life that challenge us and there is a true power for being able to process these emotions and experiences with a mental health professional to help you gain new skills and perspectives. Having a space to tackle these difficult life situations can be a life changing experience.
Brian’s first goal when beginning therapy is to create a genuine, warm, honest, open, non-judgemental space where you feel comfortable, validated, seen, and heard. From there, Brian’s purpose is to help you navigate this difficult time in your life and learn more about who you are and where you want to go. He strives to support you through this journey, but ultimately you are writing (or re-writing) your story.
With lots of years of experience working in education, Brian has worked with individuals on a number of issues including stress management, self-esteem, grief, romantic and platonic relationships, family dynamics, men’s issues, burnout particularly for those in helping professions, identity, religious trauma, and career changes and exploration.
Brian incorporates a number of different theoretical frameworks including but not limited to person-centered, strength-based, Attachment Theory, Mindfulness, CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, and narrative approaches.
Outside of counseling, Brian enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and biking, playing guitar, trying new restaurants in the city, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers (sorry to fans of our local area team).
