Orlando Depression & Substance Abuse Counseling | Brian Kurz

Meet Brian Kurz, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I have been working in the field for the past 17 years and have been practicing as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the last 14 years. I have worked in various settings including hospitals, foster care, residential treatment, private practice, and the criminal justice system. I enjoy working with people to help them through difficult and painful times in their life. I strongly believe that people can get  better and achieve their full potential if provided with the right therapy and guidance.

Experience & Education

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Winona State University in Minnesota in 1998, and I went on to pursue a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Central Florida in 2001.

I received training in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused therapy. Furthermore, I am a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work and has completed 90 hours of intensive training in applied behavior analysis.

Aside from my credentials, I am also very familiar with anxiety because of my personal experience in the past. Anxiety can be very frightening and it can alter the way you look at your world. You do not need to feel ashamed of or embarrassed about anxiety because it happens to the best of us. Finding the right type of therapist is so important to help you learn effective coping strategies that really work. Anxiety is treatable and you don’t have to continue to feel helpless and alone!
