End of Life

  • Austill, Bryan, MA, PhD

    Dr. Bryan Austill has practiced counseling full time since 1986 and has had a private practice in Breckenridge since 1997. He works primarily with adults with half his practice couples therapy and half individuals. He specializes with extra training and credentials in mood disorders, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, end-of-life, chronic illness, integration of spirituality and psychology and premarital counseling. He has worked in highly multicultural settings: Native American reservations, Pacific Islands, Hispanic communities. He has seminary training as well, is United Methodist clergy, and is the Chairperson of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors for a multi-state region (credentialed both in Psychology and Theology). He respects the spiritual journey and traditions of each person who comes to him and does not force his perspectives on anyone. He is willing to coordinate his psychotherapy work with your physician or clergy person in order to treat the whole person. He has training and experience in adoptions, foster care, child protective services, and work with adolescent offenders in institutional and court settings. At this time he limits his work with children to older teens addressing issues of relationships, mood disorders, and the process of becoming independent from parents/caregivers.
