"Brett's unique system reaches deep within the soul, alleviating stress and trauma. He's a lifeboat in the storm."

- Debra Duneier, CEO EcoChi

"I released core stress that had been with me for 25+ years"

  • Stress Is Gone

    In my work with Brett, I was able to speak my truth, forgive my parents, truly grieve the loss of a loved one and release old patterns. As stress and emotional tension released, I felt lighter physically, my depression disappeared, and all emotional eating, anxiety, and fatigue diminished. I still use his simple yet powerful techniques in my life to maintain this stress-free state.

"I trusted no one, and yet I followed Brett's lead."

  • Stress Is Gone

    I can attest to every word in Marcy Kessler’s testimonial because I experienced the same thing. When I first came into contact with Brett about 3 years ago, I felt as though I was at the end of my rope. I was in a dark abyss created by depression, and I didn't think there was any way out. While attending an online veterans support group, Brett was the guest speaker. I had my guard up and only let it down far enough to give him a shot at breaking that barrier. I didn't trust him or anyone else. In approximately 30 to 45 minutes, that all changed. Brett singled me out of a group of about 12 to 15 people. I was angry, depressed, suicidal, and above all, I trusted no one, and yet I followed his lead. Today, I rarely struggle with depression or anxiety, and I haven’t had any anger outbursts that have resulted in a blackout rage. I owe my life to Brett, and Stress Is Gone. Although I have PTSD, I’ve learned how to cope and live with it to the point of being at peace within myself. We’ve become very close friends, and it’s an honor and pleasure to be on his team. Thank you, Brother!

  • Stress Is Gone

    “Everyone mentioned how Brett’s attention to each student’s emotional state was unwavering. All said how profound and amazing their week was, and that it went beyond their expectations. I could see an obvious shift in each student and the group has remained in touch. It's teachers like Brett who truly remind me why I'm still at Omega after 18 years, and the important ripple effect our organization has on all of society and humankind.”

  • Stress Is Gone

    “We're so excited about Brett and the Stress Is Gone program he introduced for psychiatrically disabled adults, and from the start, there was an instant connection! He presented the use of exercise, affirmations, and meditation in such a unique way that everyone, including staff, was comfortable participating and following Brett's lead. He's easy to follow and fun to work with and we can't wait for him to come back and continue teaching us!”

"Brett provides a safe, non-judgmental, and empowering environment"

  • Stress Is Gone

    Brett’s been working with our traumatized adolescents in the foster care system. He’s helped our teens understand how their past trauma affects their current reactions and behaviors in a way that’s age-appropriate. He provides a safe, non-judgmental, and empowering environment in 1:1 and group sessions. He shares the tools they need to reduce stress and develop positive coping skills. Brett has given them a new belief in themselves; changing the thought and behavior patterns of even the most jaded of our children from destructive to a more positive nature. Brett goes above and beyond to help these children who’ve suffered so much in the past, as well as our management and staff. Everyone who has experienced his work is truly in a better place.

"I've never met anyone who listens to pain as well as he does and reflects back with such empathy."

  • Stress Is Gone

    I served as a US Army infantryman in Iraq back in 2003-2004 and ever since then, my daily life has been overwhelmed with feelings of shame and guilt from the things I was asked to do (and did) while I was over there. When I signed up for Brett’s 5-day workshop, I honestly didn’t expect more than a few days of relaxation, and maybe some new meditation practices. I was shocked at how quickly he began pulling out of us what was really hurting. I've never met anyone who listens to pain as well as he does and reflects back with such empathy. The most critical part of the retreat for me was my one-on-one session with Brett. He listened to me talk about my Iraq experience in a way that made me feel safe enough to really open up. He mirrored my grief and acknowledged my frustration and then he guided me back to my heart– my good pure heart–and helped me stand tall and proud again. My daily stress levels have gone down since the workshop. This is one of the most helpful experiences I’ve had in managing my post-traumatic stress.

"I believe God sends us what we need but we must choose to use it."

  • Stress Is Gone

    "My son was a disabled Marine veteran that died by suicide. Brett has been instrumental in me moving forward and raising my grandson, Kayden. My progress has made all the difference in our relationship– there’s such a change in him. He’s finally accepted this as his home. Now he wants to sit by me and lay his head down. He wants to cuddle. He’s saying ‘I love you’ without being told to. He wants me to participate in his joyful activities. Other people have told me that he’s always been a happy kid but he’s so much happier now! Kayden knows he’s loved. For instance, he overheard us talking about my other grandson’s difficulties and said, ‘just bring him home with us and love him as you love me.’

    Thank you for helping the MOVS. My purpose has transformed into helping other moms and trying to prevent soldier suicide. Christie lives in the town next to me and she was so happy she talked to you– she just raved! Other people in the support group were asking about you. I told them about the Facebook page, meditations, and Wednesday night trainings. I really want the other moms to realize they can have joy again, find a purpose, and be kind– it heals the heart. I believe God sends us what we need but we must choose to use it. You were such a blessing and still are. Brett, you’re so caring. You’re a guiding light and I don’t know if I would have moved forward without your help!


Stress Is Gone

“After Hurricane Sandy, I struggled with overwhelming feelings of anxiety and being out of control. I learned proactive skills to take better care of myself and reduce my stress levels, and those feelings no longer seem unmanageable. Most of all, breaking through the sense of isolation has been priceless.”


Stress Is Gone

“Brett has taught the Stress Is Gone Method to our instructors who have taught thousands of disabled veterans, first responders, adults and children to surf. Part of Brett’s workbook is included in our training materials, as we want our instructors to thoroughly understand how to spot, assist and quickly de-escalate anyone having a stressful experience in the water.”
