Bremen is a graduate student at the University of Utah expecting to graduate in the Spring of 2019 with a Masters of Social Work. He received his Bachelors of Social Work at Utah State University where he served as a mental health advocate in several capacities including: founding president of the NAMI chapter on campus, Human Rights and Social Justice Ambassador, USU Counseling Center REACH Peer, and project coordinator with the Social Work Student Association. Bremen worked with adolescents in residential treatment for behavioral and substance use issues, and interned as a high school social work counselor at Green Canyon High School. He also has a special love for research and has worked on a variety of projects involving topics like childhood trauma, sexual assault, suicide, depression, and spirituality. His current Masters internship is at the University Neuropsychiatric Institiute (UNI) performing intake and assessments for severe, acute mental illness and substance use.
Bremen has an open mind and humble approach to all individuals with unique backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences, and strives to create a safe therapeutic environment that promotes strengths and empowerment. His diverse experience leaves him especially passionate and specialized in working with families, relationships, depression, suicidal ideation, substance use, LGBTQ issues, anxiety, panic attacks, ADHD, and ODD.
When Bremen isn’t being a social worker you can catch him on the snowboard slopes, playing ice hockey, or engaging in any of Utah’s wonderful outdoor activities (especially if it’s at Bear Lake). He enjoys reading, writing, traveling, and of course spending time with his crazy dog, Boogie.
