Brian Kunde, MS, LCSW

Brian is a licensed clinical social worker passionate about helping clients build insight into their emotions, behaviors, and relationships outside of therapy in order to better achieve their goals. He has a relational approach to psychotherapy, in which he works to build a strong rapport with his clients through which he can help them feel heard, understood, validated, and supported in their efforts to make changes in their lives. Other models Brian utilizes in his work include person-centered therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapies such as dialectical behavioral training (DBT) and acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT). Where appropriate, Brian’s clinical approach also includes the incorporation of games & gaming into therapy to help youth develop social and emotional skills to better navigate relationships with friends and family.

Brian’s areas of focus include adolescents/young adults, LGBTQIA+ issues, family of origin issues, depression, anxiety, trauma and ADHD. He currently works with adults and adolescent clients ages 13+. Brian also provides coaching for parents needing to develop skills for better managing younger children at home and school.

Brian, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work, with a Master’s of Science in Clinical Social Work, has a rich background of work in the mental health field. His previous positions have included acute psychiatric care, school-based services, an emergency children’s shelter, LGBTQ+ youth programs, employee assistance programs, crisis intervention, and community mental healthcare for youth and their families. In addition to his practice as a therapist, Brian also works for a nonprofit in the gaming industry to advocate for improved inclusion and representation. As part of this role, he provides organizations with training and consultation services on best practices for achieving these goals.
