Life can be overwhelming and disappointing - and that's without a global pandemic! Sometimes unexpected events happen that shake us, leave us powerless and hyper-vigilant. Sometimes we look at our relationships and wonder, "how did we get here? I never imagined so much pain would come after our wedding day."
Whatever is weighing on your heart, you don't have to do this alone. You can explore solutions and find relief with counseling in a safe, compassionate, confidential environment.
Be empowered and supported on your journey to a fuller, richer life. My name is Brian Bachman and I am a mental health therapist.

St. Louis Couples & Marriage Counseling
No one gets married thinking, "This'll never last... this person is the worst... I can't stand them!" Wounds left untended and unexplored fester and fuel the fire of conflict. Using books, and regular therapy can save your marriage. Marriage counseling can make your bond stronger and better than ever!
Trama has been defined as a sudden, life-altering event. Trama can often lead to PTSD. Through research EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) has been shown to cure PTSD and give people their life back. EMDR therapy is also used for negative beliefs about ourselves that rule our lives. Contact an EMDR Therapist today.

Relationships are complicated! Friendships, family, and romantic relationships can leave us confused, lonely, and discouraged.

Depression and anxiety are exhausting! They try to steal your life and you don't feel like the true you. Every day feels like a battle, but it doesn't have to! You weren't meant to do this alone. With the help of counseling, you can enjoy life again!

What Clients Say
I didn't know we could ever heal from my infidelity.... we went from avoiding and only crying to building a new future and somehow are closer than we were before
Having a third party really brought a lot of clarity... we were stuck and couldn't see our patterns repeat... we're more likely to act like a team now

Do I have to commit to "x" number of counseling sessions?
No. You can schedule as many or as few counseling sessions as you want; there is no obligation. If you decide to cancel and cancel with 48 hours' notice you will not be billed! Though there is no commitment, keep in mind that counseling is most effective when regularly attended until goals are met.
Can I talk to you before scheduling a counseling session?
Yes! I offer 10-minute consultations. Please send me a message below to schedule one.
Do you take insurance?
Yes and no. I do not directly work with insurance companies. However, many insurance companies will reimburse Out Of Network counseling sessions and I provide paperwork for you to appeal to your insurance company for reimbursement. This is free money so don't miss out!!
What is Counseling?
Counseling is a safe place for you to be heard, explore your thoughts and feelings, find compassion, be lovingly challenged to grow, receive education, and be overall supported in your journey of meeting your goals and exchanging ineffective patterns with life-giving ones.
Are you seeing people in person?
I offer counseling sessions in-person and online via Zoom.
