Brittany has nearly ten years experience in various clinical settings including: Private Practice, School Based Therapy Services, and Higher-level of care services. Brittany has facilitated a number of groups including DBT group therapy, social skills groups for children, and psycho-education groups for parents.

Brittany brings a direct, honest, and goal-oriented personality to every session and is not afraid to challenge you to help you to grow. Brittany believes trust is a core aspect to a positive therapeutic relationship.

Brittany works to build your trust by providing an empathetic, non-judgmental environment, and aligning with your needs through the belief that you are more than the problems you present.

Brittany works to empower you to see yourself through the same lens. Brittany holistically blends elements from different psychotherapy approaches to best meet your needs.

Brittany aims to help you care for the whole self: mind, body, and soul, and will provide resources when appropriate to help you meet those needs. Brittany is excited for the potential you have and looks forward to walking through life’s ups and downs with you.

Brittany’s philosophy is to provide the tools but to allow the individual to be the main source of transformative change. Brittany loves having a profound impact on another person’s life simply by being present and listening to their needs.
