Welcome! Finding the right therapist can be a difficult, but rewarding process. My hope is that you find just the right fit to meet your needs. Appreciating the range of individuality of each person, I start where you are at using a titrated, supportive therapeutic approach. I am an LCSW and Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner. I specialize in the treatment of PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Addiction Problems, Grief/Loss, Chronic Pain, Self-Esteem, and Relationship Stress.
My name is Brittany and I've been a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT) for the past 3 years. I believe all individuals have the capacity to change and adapt despite the many obstacles that life often presents. My therapeutic practice began working with young children, teens, and families facing adversity such as community violence, generational trauma, and cultural stress due to acculturation. I am a non-binary, POC/Latinx therapist with visible tattoos and vibrant hair color that changes with the seasons.
I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical and Abnormal Social Psychology from Park University. I then continued my education and received a Master if Science degree in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University. I am currently registered with the Board of Behavioral Sciences as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Although I favor the Cognitive Behavioral and Motivational Interviewing approaches, I believe the best treatments utilize an integration of all modalities to fit the unique needs of each individual. I strongly believe that everyone has a voice and deserves to be heard.
