About Us


Dr. Brian Grandjean

Dr. Grandjean is a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. He has worked in the mental health field for over 15 years, specializing in the treatment of children and families. He gained his Masters degree in the field of psychology from West Texas A&M and his doctoral degree in Marital and Family Therapy from Texas Woman's University. As the director and clinician for Emerald Palace Practice, he treats a wide range of issues from depression, anxiety, marital discord, ADHD, as well as chronic illness in siblings and adults. While skilled in the above listed areas, his primary specialty is the treatment of high functioning autistic children/adults and individuals who exhibit signs of Asperger's and Social Communication Disorder. 

Out of the Box Perspective

While trained in the traditional family therapy approaches, such as systems, strategic, structural etc., Dr. Grandjean tends to focus on the positive achievements of his clients and uses inherent strengths of individuals to counter challenges they may currently face. Such challenges may include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, or even limited social skills. Therapeutic interventions are based on individual needs as well as a collaborative approach to finding solutions to existing challenges.
