Bryan Nixon, MA, LPC

Bryan is the founder of Mindful Counseling GR and is a Licensed Professional Counselor serving the Grand Rapids area. He helps people just like you get unstuck. Maybe you’re stuck because of self-limiting beliefs, nagging anxiety, shame from your past, an inner critic that won’t shut up, or a depression that constantly whispers a message of hopelessness. Bryan can help you journey into these parts of your story, reclaim hope and move beyond being stuck. Bryan delights in the deep honor of walking alongside his clients through the process of insight, healing and transformation.

Bryan received his Master’s of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2007 where he studied under Dr. Dan Allender. He has been working in the field of psychology since 2002 and specifically as a counselor since 2007. Bryan specializes in integrating mindfulness and body awareness with traditional psychotherapy in order to invite you to live into the fullness of who you were created to be. He approaches the work of counseling from a holistic perspective and holds to the belief that you are much more than a list of symptoms. Bryan believes that your symptoms have deeper meaning and will invite you to explore the deeper story of your symptoms with curiosity and compassion.
