Kyle BridgmanLicensed Marriage and Family Therapist / President

My name is Kyle Bridgman, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and CEO of Project Ember Initiative. Before becoming a therapist, I spent over 12 years working with adolescents and teens in residential care, mentorship programs, and in other mental health care capacities. Additionally, I have taught classes on parenting, life-skills, and couple’s relationships, along with training in trauma, adolescent issues, and managing conflict in relationships. My practice style is very relational and causal, but also direct and goal oriented. The foundation of progress rests significantly on the relationship between a client and the therapist, so my intent is to always be open, honest, and real, while creating a sense of safety and trust.

Apart from work I am a father of three awesome teens, I’ve been married for over 20 years, and I come from a family of 10. All that to say, while I have an educational background in working with family systems, even more so I have a good amount of lived experience dealing with the complexities, uniqueness, joys, and frustrations of family life! While I am a therapist, husband, father, brother, and son, my hope that being good at one role will make me better at the others.

In my free time I enjoy going on adventures with friends and family, snowboarding, traveling, hiking, woodworking, and feeding my need for adrenaline as I mark things off my bucket list.

It is my unwavering belief that most people are fully capable of recognizing problem areas in their life and have the ability to adapt and make changes so that they can live with a sense of meaning and purpose. Oftentimes, my role as a therapist is to simply be a catalyst for change, offering a non-judgmental place for clients to speak openly and freely about what is going on in their lives, or more so, in their minds. You can expect your first visit to be a time for us to get to know each other, for me to hear your story and what brings you into therapy and gain a better understanding of where you would like to be when your goals are met.
