Brian Tobin

Graduate Counseling Intern


Brian was born in Albany, New York.  He attended Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Humanities.  After graduation, Brian moved to Vermont and began a career teaching yoga and meditation in the Burlington area.  He has designed training programs for the University of Vermont and Clarkson University athletic programs, led international yoga retreats, and runs teacher training programs.

While pursuing his passion for yoga and meditation, Brian worked within Howard Center addiction and crisis programs in Burlington.  This clinical experience, within addictions and crisis models, led Brian to enroll in the University of Vermont Masters of Counseling program in 2016. Currently, he is a second-year student in the program.

Brian’s psychotherapeutic lens is strongly influenced by psychodynamic, existential, and humanistic theoretical frameworks.  He utilizes mindfulness, somatic, and integral theories when appropriate. Brian sees the counseling relationship as an opportunity to support the inherent wisdom of his clients in order to cultivate harmony in their lives. Brian’s therapeutic work is based on compassion and unconditional support of his clients. He is passionate about working with college students as they explore individuation, relationships, meaning making, and other areas of development at this stage of life. Brian’s psychotherapeutic lens is built on a multicultural and social justice framework, attempting to honor and acknowledge the unique social identities that influence individuals daily.

Brian is passionate about nature and agriculture. He enjoys skiing, kayaking, and hiking. Brian lives in Hinesburg, Vermont.
