Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I’m Brian Burns and I have been practicing full time as a family therapist since January, 1999. During this time I have worked with children, adolescents, parents, single adults, couples, and for the past 12 years I have worked primarily with adults in the midst of relationship crisis.

I’m Brian Burns and I have been practicing full time as a family therapist since January, 1999. During this time I have worked with children, adolescents, parents, single adults, couples, and for the past 12 years I have worked primarily with adults in the midst of relationship crisis. I have met with many, many couples and parents struggling to repair the breakdown of trust, intimacy, and communication.

In addition, I am a certified mediator, parenting coach, and Rule-29 Neutral in the State of MN. This means I have the skills and experience necessary to help parents who are divorced to make agreements about parenting in a collaborative and child-centered manner. I believe that even though conflict and fear can bring out the worst in people, everyone has the capacity to be a better version of themselves, and that our children need us to give it all we have to be our best.

Whenever possible, I prefer to help couples save and strengthen their marriage or committed relationships. I am married myself and a big fan! At the same time, I understand well that not all relationships can (or even should) stay together. In these cases, especially when there are children involved, I work hard to help the couple end the relationship in a way that can be as healthy as possible for everyone, especially when there are children involved.

Let me know how we can best work together. I look forward to meeting you.
