Meet Dr. Brian Casey, LSW, PhD

Lakeview Virtual

Brian received his Master of Social Work degree from the University of Chicago and holds graduate degrees in Genetics (MS), Religious Studies (MA), and History of Science and Medicine (PhD) from Yale. He has completed extensive training to become a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP). He specializes in partnering with adults of all ages to identify, examine and face anxiety triggers so they can stop merely enduring life and begin to more joyfully participate in life again. Brian’s approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) while incorporating other methodologies, such as mindfulness and existential psychotherapy, to address the needs of the whole person.

Brian seeks to encourage clients to gain knowledge of themselves and the phenomenon of anxiety. He wants his clients to build courage by replacing anxiety-reinforcing habits with new ways of acting and thinking that change the way one’s brain processes stimuli and so how one experiences life. Brian believes anxiety should be a welcomed opportunity to pause and reflect on one’s reactions to life. Anxiety treatment clarifies what we need to do in order to become who we want to be, accepting ourselves while rejecting the power of fear.

Brian is so flexible when I throw a lot at him. He always does a good job following those thoughts and pulling out valuable insights that I’m not able to see on my own. And he’s so patient – the experience feels very customized to me as opposed to a standard treatment I’ve heard about from others at other organizations.
