Hello! I’m Brian Pruim, a social worker currently advancing my studies with an MSW at Indiana Wesleyan University. My diverse background as a former Sergeant in the U.S. Marines and a combat veteran of the Iraq War informs my grounded, resilient approach to mental health care. I am also an avid yogi, which integrates seamlessly into my therapeutic practice. I employ a variety of techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength-Based Approaches, personalized homework assignments, breathwork, and meditation. My expertise lies in addressing depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and anger management. I am committed to facilitating each client’s path to improved mental well-being.
