Hello! I am a therapist, military spouse (recently retired) and Mom of 2. I have a passion for serving families who serve and sacrifice for our nation! For many years I lived the active duty military lifestyle. I know first-hand the pain of infertility as a military spouse and navigated fertility treatments in Military Training Facilities. I have lived through deployments and unaccompanied remote assignments as a young mom while managing home, kids, career and community service to fellow military spouses and families. I know the pain of being away from extended family, frequent moves and all the adventures of service life!

I approach therapy as a partnership. I believe that people are able to identify and discover their unique strengths, gifts, and wounds through a supportive therapeutic relationship. I really believe in the deep goodness of each person and understand that part of recovering from difficulties and trauma involves re-discovering this goodness and understanding what interrupted growth. Together, I collaborate with people to develop resources and practices that provide an additional layer of support while doing the vulnerable and challenging work of therapy.

Hey there, I'm Brittney and I want to first start off by saying congratulations, because you have just taken the hardest step in your therapy journey, which is the first step. If you ever catch yourself using words like "shouldn't" "can't" or "never" when you think about your feelings, or maybe you often find yourself putting others' needs above your own. Perhaps you're stuck in a cycle of anxiety, constantly worrying about the future to the point where you can't sleep at night. If any of this sounds familiar, you're not alone. I'm super passionate about helping folks who are struggling with those unhelpful thought patterns.

I take a direct approach to the therapy process by working with adults to deepen self-awareness and explore the past to help better understand current situations, and find strategies to address current challenges. I aim to help clients gain clarity, insight and awareness of behavior and thought patterns so that clients can be more purposeful about how to approach everyday decisions. My goal for each client is that they end therapy not only with clarity about the past and the future, but also with the tools and confidence to achieve their goals.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
