I am sex positive and do not pathologize human sexuality.
Sexual issues can - and do - happen to anyone. Perhaps you struggle to experience the pleasure of sexuality and eroticism; perhaps there is an aspect of your sexuality that is confusing to you; perhaps you or your partner have a sexual dysfunction like painful intercourse or erectile dysfunction; perhaps you are in a low sex/no sex relationship; or perhaps you're reeling from learning of your partner's betrayal. In our sex-negative culture, these are difficult issues to talk about. I am here to help. After all, everyone has the right to a healthy and happy sex life.

I am a sex positive therapist, who views sex, sexuality and sexual concerns as a valuable, healthy and normal part of the human experience.
I think therapy has a lot to do with the "art of conversation" and how we relate to one another. My goal as your clinician will be to hear you, understand the world you live in and support your efforts to improve your sense of self, life-functioning skills and overall happiness. I use acceptance, empathy and compassion with my clients, emphasizing how their current strengths can support them when facing difficulties and challenges in their lives. I encourage my clients to be the experts in the room and work to support, guide and aid them toward happier and healthier lives.

I am kink -friendly, poly-friendly, and LGBTQ affirming.
Have you ever felt that thriving in life is a monumental task? You’re not alone. The central goal of psychotherapy is to alleviate symptoms, and I want not only to address them, but also to help you transcend them, so that you can truly thrive in your relationships with others and (more importantly) with yourself. Whether you and your partner are struggling, or you’re struggling on your own, here is my commitment to you: you know longer have to suffer alone. I am here for you. I want to help you discover what you want and how to work toward it. I will support your return to joy, resiliency and wisdom to handle life’s challenges

I especially enjoy working with those who live "outside the box" -- genderqueer, activists, sexual explorers ( kink , poly, sex professionals, etc.
Don't know which way to turn? I'm convinced that part of you DOES know. If you're depressed, anxious, frustrated, confused, or in emotional pain, I will sit with you in that place with love until you hear your own inner wisdom guide you. I will help you access that knowledge through focusing your attention on your emotional body, listening to your unique story, and in many other ways holding a mirror up to YOU. We'll look at unhelpful mental habits you've picked up to survive in this world, and figure out what would work better.

I am sex positive , and harm reduction oriented.
I describe my approach as informal and professional. I believe that the heart of good individual therapy is the relationship between the therapist and client. The most common complaint I hear from my clients about other therapists is either that they are a blank screen or they are overly focused on one perspective. Not me. I work with you to develop a plan. I am actively engaged, helping you learn how to help yourself. I also look at how various identities you may have (gender, racial, etc) impact on you and the issues you want to work on. When working with couples, I use an evidence-based approach focused on the present.

I am a relationship oriented, sex positive therapist who knows that monogamous relationships are not the only healthy relationships.
Normal. What a trippy, pejorative word. And you’re almost fixated on it. Is what you are doing normal? Are your feelings normal? You just don’t feel normal. Fitting into the box of what everyone else is doing doesn’t feel good, but neither does being where you’re at. You as you are does not look like what you see everyone else doing/being. The constant comparisons are so painful, and you just can’t stop them. Something has to be fixed, but you are just not sure what or how. The suffering is becoming too much…

Although I work with people from all walks of life, I especially enjoy creating a safe space for people who otherwise might not feel safe to come to therapy including the LGBTQ+, Sex worker, and Kink communities.
Hi, I’m Brittnee Berry and I specialize in EMDR and couples therapy for adults. Many people think trauma is only the worst instance like war and abuse, but trauma can be as small as being laughed at while giving a presentation. Anything that causes lasting emotional distress can be considered trauma. Experiencing trauma can affect your mental and emotional health leaving you tired, lost, and angry. It can make managing your emotions challenging, leading to conflict within your relationships. You might feel lonely, disconnected and like communicating with your partner is impossible. We can work together to overcome these challenges!

I am guided by the principal that the deeper we can look into ourselves, the deeper we can see into the world - by understanding ourselves, we can understand how we are limited - once we know where we are hung up, we can make more adaptive and healthier choices - we can craft the life we prefer to live. In my work with clients, we often uncover long-held family patterns and dynamics that come from histories of addiction, abuse, toxic shame, codependency and trauma. These patterns become increasingly dissatisfying and uncomfortable to live with. I am here to help.

The poet, Mary Oliver, asks: "Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" I am so honored to walk with my clients in a skill-based approach as we explore these kinds of questions and access that deeper wisdom available to us all. The human psyche is such a magnificent entity--your search for an ultimately satisfying life deserves to be witnessed and supported as you move through it! I believe that as you recognize patterns which may be limiting your life and release them, you will find the source of true empowerment as well as our interconnectedness with it.

The word “heal” comes from “to make whole.” Psychotherapy, more aptly psyche-therapy, is a sacred process of tending to the soul wound and waking more fully to one’s aliveness and inherent wholeness. I am deeply passionate about supporting you in healing the fragmented and disowned parts of self that hinder you from living a life of meaningful connections, purposeful self-agency and joy. We work collaboratively to creatively transform unconscious and limiting belief structures, access your resiliencies, welcome emerging truths, skillfully navigate adversity with new tools, and integrate insights for profound and evolving change.
