Bryce helps clients advocate for themselves with peers and families.  He helps them identify their emotions and then effectively express them in healthy outlets.  He helps clients learn healthy boundaries with peers, adults, and themselves so they can feel secure. He helps families who feel that their child has so much hidden potential, but needs a creative outlet to show their true colors and express themselves in a beneficial way.  He does his best work when he is working with families who possess these qualities: open-mindedness, open to change, willing to communicate and try new skills, and teamwork with therapist.  

What he wants to share with families:

“When I work with clients they achieve:

– An understanding that they are first, valuable and worthy of quality relationships with peers, adults, and themselves. We work on how to set healthy limits, advocate for ourselves, and communicate effectively.  
– Start to identify what specific emotions they are feeling are and how they experience them throughout their daily lives. While the client is learning their emotions they begin to be able to identify and cope with their feelings faster and more effectively. This results in less emotional outburst and much more quality interactions with the client.”
