Brian D. Paul, Ph.D.

I am a licensed psychologist in Missouri providing individual, couples, and group therapy to adults.


I earned my master’s and doctoral degrees in counseling psychology at Western Michigan University before completing my predoctoral internship at the University of Georgia Counseling Center.


Before going into private practice full time in 2006, I worked at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) in the Counseling Psychology Division as a clinical instructor and as the director of the Community Counseling Services, which is the clinical training center for graduate students in the division. I also completed my postdoctoral fellowship at the UMKC Counseling Center.


I have over twenty years of experience providing both time-limited and long-term therapy on a wide range of clinical issues with adults from a variety of socio-economic, racial, and ethnic backgrounds, as well as sexual orientations.


To help against the spread of COVID-19, I am temporally suspending in-person therapy. You will still be able to have a therapy session, but it will be done via Teletherapy using a HIPAA-compliant video platform. Most insurance plans are covering Teletherapy, and some are even waiving co-pays and coinsurance fees for patients. Please check with your insurer about any possible restrictions in your coverage for Teletherapy.
