Meet Brian Reiswig. Brian has been attending Existence Church for the past 8 years, and it was a couple of years ago that he and Pastor Shawn Kennedy had a vision. That vision was to offer professional counseling in a safe, familiar environment for members of the Existence community. At our previous location, this simply wasn’t a possibility due to logistics. But now that we’ve moved into our new building, the vision is becoming a reality!

Starting Monday, April 25, Brian will be taking clients. He will be working out of Existence on Mondays plus one other weekday morning. What is known as the nursing room on Sundays will be transformed during the week into a room perfect for counseling sessions. Reduced rates will be offered for Existence Church community members.

While pastoral counseling is a wonderful resource, sometimes the struggles of life can take us to a place where we desire high level psychotherapy from a specialized therapist. Brian is a professional Marriage and Family Therapist currently in private practice at the San Diego Institute for Couples and Families. He specializes in counseling for both individuals and couples, focusing on a variety of issues including depression, trauma, compulsive behavior, relationships, and addiction. Brian’s hope is that by bringing his services into the church, it will create an accessible place for the Existence community to seek help.

Since you’ll be sharing personal details from your lives with Brian, we thought it only fair to share some of his as well. His favorite ice cream flavor is Chubby Hubby or anything with pretzels, he has a fear of spiders, he loves going to Disneyland with his family, he dislikes most muffins, and he once had 911 called for him when he got stuck in a hide-a-bed sofa.

In all seriousness, Brian is here to help. He wants to come alongside you and provide therapy from a Christian foundation. To reach out to Brian with questions or to schedule an appointment, call him at 760-500-9355 or e-mail Brian at
