Brian Fitts, PhD

Therapeutic Style:

My therapeutic style is primarily integrative. I’m interested in the role current and past relationships, lived experiences, and identities play in presenting concerns. We’ll also explore the role thoughts, emotions, and feelings and explore how these cause and exacerbate your presenting concerns. I believe identifying and building on strengths is important to the work we do. I view therapy as collaborative, where we work together toward goals that we mutually set.

Supervision Style: 

My supervision style is strengths-based and developmental. We identify where you are as a trainee and build on your strengths and training through a developmental framework. We also collaborate on goal setting and evaluation.

Professional Interests:

My professional interests include crisis intervention, care management, individual therapy, and psychological assessment.

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I am a liaison to a section of residence life and coordinator for assessment services at CCS.

Educational Background:

I earned my BA in English – Creative Writing and MA in Counselor Education from John Carroll University, and my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Cleveland State University. I completed my doctoral internship at CCS here at OSU.

Personal Interests:

I enjoy spending time with my people, being active and outside, a good patio, exercising, and the Browns, Guardians, Cavaliers, Crew, and Blue Jackets.
