Welcome! My name is Brittany and I believe that you are the expert in your life, but sometimes, you need a little help trying to make sense of it all. Helping someone to see their own strength in vulnerability, and connect to themselves in ways they never thought possible, brings me absolute joy. And joy, from what I’ve learned in my work, occurs when we live our lives with authenticity. My belief is that people thrive when they have the space to be their authentic selves. I hope to provide a comfortable space within a therapeutic alliance for individuals to explore their authentic selves.

I place importance on being approachable, thoughtful, sensitive and direct. In therapy, I think it is valuable to focus on both past and present experiences. Looking at your history can help us understand what sets of beliefs, about yourself and the world, might be holding you back from having a better experience in life - and what makes these beliefs so powerful. Examining current behaviors and interactions allows for reflection and adjustment of unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviors impeding your success and personal satisfaction.
