Dr. Brian Tierney

(PhD)

About Me

Hi, My name is Brian and I delight in helping couples connect with and/or re-create the foundations of their love and respect. I was pleased to find that my many years as a trainer in conscious communication easily applied to couples therapy because having a nurturing relationship has everything to do with clear communication. Too bad most of us never received a conscious communication and emotional literacy class in grade school or middle school, but I was lucky to encounter trainings like this at a very early age and have been an educator in the field of communication for decades.

As a couples therapist I will help you to do something that may sound trivial or oversimplified but I assure you it is the single most potent metaphor I have seen in all my studies that can change your life as a couple: develop a shared observation post! Simple, but definitely not easy! The image of a shared observation post affords a place where the couple can go to together to get perspective in collaboration. Such a perspective gives the couple distance from the patterns that pull them into vortices of resentment and retribution. Couples therapy is like architecture. We build an observation post together so that you can see each-other more clearly, listen to the needs of one-another more effectively, develop emotional literacy, and more powerfully nourish the spark which created you as a couple.

Dr. Brian is very easy to connect, a great listener and very knowledgeable. My wife and I really like the way he communicates. We had tried counseling in the past and never had a first session where we made so much progress. We look forward to keep working with Dr. Brian.

Dr. Tierney is insightful, creates a safe environment to talk, understanding, and gives practical advice. He follows up on previous issues and asks questions for us to open up. I’ve gotten valuable insight from every session.

Dr Tierney is a very talented and understanding person. Just in the brief time spent together, he's already identified some of the core issues and how to proceed forward with them. I am looking forward to learning more about myself in the future and respect his time and expertise.
