We’re kicking off the 2nd episode ever of the Do This for Performance podcast with a really insightful interview. Dr. Thomas Brunner is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in advanced assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and adults. For over a decade Dr. Brunner has been committed to delivering the most cost-effective care, with the most sustainable results, in the most compassionate manner.
