About Me

Hello, My name is Brian A. Lentz. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas and Colorado with 7 years experience in both the outpatient and inpatient mental health environments. My focus is supporting those with a wide range of mental health issues (Bipolar, PTSD, Anxiety, Schizoaffective, Schizophrenia, Delusional, Depression, GAD, OCD, Panic, Social, Dependent, Paranoia, etc.) or familial challenges, motivational issues, work burnout, personal struggles, or any of a myriad of life circumstances that may have become overwhelming/ difficult to manage. It is my goal to collaboratively work with clients to achieve a better quality of life, overcoming obstacles, to live a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life while following the principles included in the Bible. I am person centered, solution focused, direct engagement, with a "not one size fits all" approach. I try hard to "meet clients where they are" in their particular circumstances and support them to achieve their goals for recovery. I am experienced in many different therapeutic modalities including: Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Reframing, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused, Trauma-Focused, Holistic, Life Coaching, Client Centered, Emotionally-Focused, and Narrative Therapies. I am a Combat Veteran (14 yrs USAF) and understand many of those unique challenges our service persons have. I am also a preacher kid that grew up in the protestant Christian church and understand those principles very well.

Thank you for coming to Better Help. It takes real courage to seek support for the many different areas of life that we encounter that may have become overwhelming. This decision could be your first step to a more balanced and happier life. I would be honored to join with you in that journey to support and encourage you! I look forward to working with you.

Be Well

Reviews

Written by M.A. on Dec 29, 2021 after therapy with Brian for 2 months

This was my first phone counseling session and I was very skeptical but now I am 100 percent satisfied with Brian as my counselor. He really understands my situation and remembers everything we have talked about in the past few months.
