My grandson came to live with us at the age of 12 after his mother, my daughter, passed away. His teenage years were very tumultuous. We spent years in counseling helping him deal with everything that happened in the past, plus diagnoses of ADHD, anxiety and PTSD. Really just trying to keep him alive.
At the age of around 20 I decided that maybe what he needed was someone to help him with his future and that was where Brian came in.
My grandson was reluctant at first but once he started talking with Brian his life turned around.
I would refer to Brian as his life coach, giving him the tools he needed to navigate into adulthood.
I am happy to report that he is gainfully employed, learning a trade and more social than he has ever been with great plans for the future and tools to get to where he wants to be.
Thank you Brian. – Janet Lantz
No judgement. Ability to reframe is off the chain. Relatability. Humor. Perspective. The “We” you are always coming back around to. And just your real and vast knowledge. There’s more but I’m about to party with my peeps and I’ve still got cooking to do! – Lisa Hiering
Most of my questions with Brian center around parenting our ADHD/ODD son. Admittedly I reach out when things become chaotic and my emotions overpower my rational thinking. Brian is non judgemental, listens and gets the situation quickly. He offers real, workable solutions that can be implemented immediately. Others I’ve sought advice from take a big picture approach a lot of the time which I get, but I appreciate that I can just ‘spill it out’ with Brian and he ‘talks me off the ledge’ so to speak. – Maribeth Mills
Brian is very knowledgeable and insightful—quickly pinpointing our areas of challenge with his experienced tried and true methods.
Give Brian a call! Believe me—you won’t regret it, unless you DON’T talk to Brian!! – Linda Weaver
Brian is a guy who can help many people not in a wheelchair but confined by their own debilitating fears and negative chatter. You rock my man. – Thomas Watson
|“Brian’s simple strategies helped me become a better person and a better communicator. His lectures are powerful and he manages to share insights that can help anyone. He speaks to the core of what it is to be human. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I am grateful to have the opportunity to learn from him.” – Dawn Walden|
|“Brian King really struck a chord with me on a personal level – what he said applies to all kinds of relationships with any person, whether on the spectrum or not. His strategies are good advice for everyone and probably in particular those with mental health issues. He was amazing!” – Anonymous from a presentation evaluation|
| “In just 30 min, Brian was able to help me focus on my need for control and how to restore my sense of wonder. He also gave me strategies on how to effectively listen to my daughter as we make the decision of whether homeschooling is a match for her.”|
– Christine Rosas
| “I encourage anyone who has an overactive mind/are a generally doubtful person to reach out to Brian. Something about this man worked on me. He addressed my doubts; my stomach stopped churning and I started to shift internally to a calmer spot.”|
– Scott Doucet
|“I first heard Brian King speak at the June 2015 Living with Autism Conference sponsored by The Arc of Illinois and The Autism Program of Illinois (TAP). His presentation was incredibly human, inspirational and motivating! Brian exemplifies learning through adversity. He is passionate about sharing his knowledge and experiences to help others. This is why, when I was asked to identify potential presenters for the 2017 Targeting Autism forum, I knew I wanted to reach out to Brian right away. I knew that he would share powerful yet practical tools to positively impact the lives of those in attendance – and he did!” – Mary Pelich|
|“I Love Brian’s outside the box approach. I came to him hoping to find a path to forgiveness that would help deepen my relationships. What blows me away is that Brian makes himself accessible at any time one of us needs some on-the-spot coaching in a difficult situation….AWESOME! Brian’s knowledge reaches a broad spectrum of humans with challenges because of his knowledge and talents. He is in his own. His purpose. He makes a difference on this earth. I would recommend him hands down to anyone looking to improve their relationships.” – Shannon McKennie|
