Dr. Isaac Brandt earned his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Prior to Bucknell, he worked in student counseling centers at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and at Texas A&M, College Station. He feels privileged to get to work with students on their personal growth journeys. He feels passionate about the power of therapy to help students work through struggles, connect with strengths, and realize their goals.
He approaches therapy from a largely Humanistic-informed perspective- with a deep belief in the human capacity for growth. He also values multicultural understanding- deeply understanding people in their cultural context- as a person's sociocultural background and current sociocultural context strongly shape how they experience themselves, their value, and sense of barriers/freedom to become their truest self. He also believes strongly that providing an open and safe relationship in which a person feels their struggles are accurately appreciated and their strengths are honored are key ingredients for the recipe required for growth and change to occur.
Professional Interests: Intersectionality of Identities, Gender Identity, ADHD, Family of Origin concerns, Mindfulness and Yoga, and working with Student Athletes.
Personal Note: In his spare time you will find Isaac walking/running with his dog, riding his road bike, playing Ultimate Frisbee, cooking for his friends, and daydreaming about starting a social justice oriented Sports Podcast.
