About me:

Hello! My name is Brian Coleman. I'm they guy who typically wears Hawaiian shirts and funky socks.

I recently graduated with my Masters of Social Work and started with Restoring Hope in September as a counselor. I have almost 5 years experience as a counselor, working primarily with individuals with addictions.


My area of expertise is working with those recovering from addictions (substance use disorder). That's where my education began, and I had great instructors! I also love the brain! I studied Neuropsychology at WSU and was fascinated by the power and complexity of the brain.

My Approach / Philosophy:

I am a very solution-focused counselor and find that our individual narratives hold answers, power, and solutions to our problems.

What do you love about Restoring Hope?

One of the things I love about working at Restoring Hope is the collaborative, family-like environment! I was very impressed and drawn to it from the moment I met with the team.

Why Restoring Hope?

In addition to the working environment, I chose Restoring Hope because of the value that the agency places on their clients and the focus of their work.
