Brian Hurley, CCC-SLP, CBIS is a certified Speech Language Pathologist, founder, and COO of Collective Therapy. He completed his Master's in Speech Therapy at North Carolina Central University, and an undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University in Communication Disorders. Currently, Brian is licensed in North Carolina and California, and has experience in inpatient rehabilitation, Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), and outpatient therapy with a neurology clinic for head injuries.
Brian originally became interested in the field from a young age watching his friend with deafness, grow up learning to sign, and utilize language. Since the early introduction to the field, his interests have shifted to that of helping the adult population and geriatric population. He enjoys utilizing his creative and artistic side to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to the individual. Brian has been specializing in brain injury assessment and recovery for the past few years, and became a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) in 2020. He's also trained in the use of Fiberoptic Endoscopy for Evaluation of Swallow.
His passion for helping people achieve their potential in whatever circumstances they've been placed in is clear through his tireless work to achieve their goals and positive outcomes. He enjoys the results shared with patients and families when these outcomes are met. Brian understands the importance of a team approach to reaching goals, and collaborates with all professionals, and families as needed. This is why Brian was excited to co-found Collective Therapy.
Outside of work, you'll find Brian planning his next big ski trip, running, or checking out a new craft brewery in town with friends and colleagues. He initially moved to Charlotte while working as a travel therapist doing 3-month contracts and soon found out he would fall in love with the city, and make the Queen City home. Brian enjoys traveling and learning all he can about other cultures and cities. He benefits from his travels and brings this information to the practice by being able to engage and connect with individuals across the lifespan.
Communication is a key part to the field of speech therapy and Brian has appreciation for how it's crucial in developing a productive and effective care plan for all individuals and their loved ones.
"To me, Collective Therapy is a means of offering a rehabilitation experience unlike the typical model. Collective can truly put the patient first, offer the care and needs of that patient, knowing the company has that goal in mind above all else. Next, Collective is a means to provide an opportunity to my colleagues to be a part of an organization they can take pride and ownership in. Lastly, Collective Therapy is an organization that is built on the principle of helping others, and bringing like-minded people together in order to maximize our skill sets, and create a work environment conducive to exceeding expectations."
