Helping you succeed in the modern world
There is often not enough time in the day to accomplish our goals and care for ourselves. Responsibilities and commitments can be overwhelming. Raising children, pursuing career advancement, helping aging parents, retirement and coping with losses can leave us emotionally depleted. Such stressors and setbacks can feel even more difficult to manage with the state of affairs in the world. These are challenging times and working with a skilled psychologist can help you navigate life with success.
I'm Dr. Brian Wilson. I'm a clinical psychologist and owner of Tampa Palms Psychology. I am focused on helping you cope with the demands of the modern world through compassion, careful listening and various psychotherapeutic methods.
I provide individual psychotherapy for a broad range of adult mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, stress and relationship concerns. My approach to psychotherapy is personalized, integrative and focuses on tailoring the treatment to your particular circumstances. In addition, I have interests in the following areas:
• Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
• Stress and coping in healthcare providers
• Geriatric mental health
• Caregiver support, particularly those caring for a spouse or parent
• Emotional distress associated with chronic medical problems
• Telehealth for clients who are homebound due to disability
Couples therapy is offered on a limited basis. Diagnostic psychological evaluations and personality testing are also available. I do not treat children or adolescents.
My practice specializes in telehealth, and I use a secure, HIPPA-compatible video platform. Online psychotherapy is offered throughout Florida and Minnesota, and in-person visits are available at my relaxing office in Tampa Palms, FL. Please feel free to request an appointment through my website. If the available appointment times are not convenient for your schedule, please contact me to discuss additional meeting times. I offer a free phone consultation so we can decide together if I am the right psychologist for you.
Medicare is the only insurance plan that is accepted for payment. Most of my clients pay for treatment 'out-of-pocket' and documentation is provided if they wish to pursue out of network reimbursement. Please see the fee schedule below.
I earned a B.S. in psychology from the University of Florida in 1996 and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of North Dakota in 2003. I have 19 years of experience as a clinical psychologist, and have practiced in a variety of settings. My past clinical work has included primary care and community mental health, inpatient psychiatry, residential PTSD treatment, outpatient PTSD treatment, geriatric mental health, and health psychology. I have also provided professional consultation to psychotherapists seeking expertise with PTSD. I am licensed to practice psychology in Florida and Minnesota, and I am a member of the American Psychological Association.
There is hope and joy to be had despite the challenges you face. Please contact me if you would like to schedule a consultation. Evening and weekend hours are available for your convenience.
