Bryan Lindberg opened his practice in 2004 after he and his family moved to Virginia from Rhode Island.
Bryan has four separate post-graduate degrees.; Master of Art in Religious Studies from Providence College, a Master of Science in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Rhode Island, a Master of Theology from Trinity College, and a Doctorate of Apologetics from Trinity Seminary. He is also certified in addiction counseling.
Prior to Virginia, he was licensed in Rhode Island where he also practiced. Dr. Lindberg has over twenty of clinical experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and over thirty years as a counselor.
Bryan specializes in Systemic Theory, which is that all aspects of living are connected. Every system is bounded by space and time, influenced by its environment, defined by its structure and purpose, and expressed through its functioning. A system may be more than the sum of its parts. This is to say that an issue is not isolated, it affects many different components and a solution is found by examining the entire system. Systems psychology is a branch of psychology that studies human behavior and experience in complex systems.
Bryan believes that the “human endeavor” is one in which we strive to achieve something of significance. The action of endeavoring requires effort, or pains, directed to attain something of significance. His effort is to assist others in their endeavor.
