Brandon grew up in Southern California where he spent most of his youth skateboarding or at the beach surfing. While at Sonoma State University he was surprised to find himself studying humanistic and transpersonal psychology, it was in that unique program that his life long interest in healing, contemplation and transformation began. After being a social worker for a number of years he pursed a degree in counseling psychology from Lewis and Clark College and receives ongoing training in gestalt therapy. He has spent time as a wilderness therapy guide, mentored homeless youth, provided therapy to diverse groups of people and has made more burritos then he can count. In his free time he enjoys backpacking, spending time with his family and experiencing what life offers.
