About Brandon Shurn

You might be worried about what's going to happen next and you often find that you are more and more anxious no matter what you do to shake the worry. You may find that you are frequently experiencing low energy and cannot bring yourself to do the things you once enjoyed. You might have experienced an event in your life that has created emotional and or physical scars, and as a result, you find that you avoid certain places/people and may even find that you are easily startled and might go from happy to agitated in a matter of moments. If any of this sounds like you, I can help.

I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, and trauma. To help navigate these issues I take a holistic approach using gestalt therapy as my foundational approach to our work together. Dealing with you as an entire being means that we look at how those issues are not only impacting you mentally, but also physically, and relationally. Every session is tailored to you as an individual with the ultimate goal of getting you to the point where you are no longer negatively impacted by anxiety, depression, or trauma.

I am the owner and operator of EmPower Me Holistic Counseling. I have been in the field since 2017 and have a passion for helping people reach their goals by tapping into their internal power. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) in Maryland, a nationally certified counselor (NCC), and am also a board-approved supervisor. I believe that everyone has the ability to overcome the challenges they encounter in life, it is just a matter of being EmPowered to do so.

I would encourage you to identify the possible reason you experience this sadness. I view depression as the present experience of a past event. Essentially, what you want to ask yourself "What am I down about? " Recognize that there might be more than one cause. To possibly get to the root of the... more
