Hello, I am Britani Lalone, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Florida and am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Minnesota. I completed my graduate work at St. Thomas and Undergrad at the University of Minnesota. I am currently practicing in Community Mental Health where I work with individuals with Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Substance Use Disorder, and PTSD.
I take a person centered approach to counseling, focusing on not just the issue but the environment. I work with many therapeutic tools; including Dialectical Behavioral skills for emotion regulation, mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation; exposure therapy skills; and anger management. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my preferred treatment. We will explore thought patterns and the core beliefs which drive our automatic thoughts and control behaviors and emotions. Together we will challenge and change these beliefs, if we find they are unhelpful, unrealistic, or untrue. I want to help create a healthier overall you.

A lovely lady, Im grateful that she has become a support in my life. Our relationship is young but I look forward to strengthening it with time and sharing! Please give her a raise if that's at all possible =D
I had the best therapist ever with you. I’m feeling sad to stop it because of my physical health is so much worse, yet know that my mental health will be better of by not overwhelming it. You’re great! Take care now!
Britani is attentive, caring, and a great listener. I love that she gives me exercises to work on that make me more aware of my body and where my anxiety is coming from. She goes above and beyond for her clients, highly recommend.
Britani is a phenomenal counselor. She’s so relatable, knowledgeable, kind, and allows me to be myself and feel comfortable which isn’t something I’ve experienced in counseling before. She genuinely makes me feel cared about.
I cannot be more thankful for Britani. She is so patient and kind.
Britani has been helping to work through a traumatic time of my life and has been so patient and supportive of me. She does a really great job of helping me to come to conclusions that certain things are not good for me without just saying "this is bad for you", which has been so powerful. Our sessions are always pleasant, even when dealing with difficult things she speaks to me like a person, and helps me to really understand what is happening in my head and that it's going to be okay.
I have been thoroughly impressed with Britani’s professionalism, compassion and insight. This is not my first experience with a therapist and I consider myself to be a seasoned patient. At first, when I decided to use this service I was expecting much less than I have received, meaning I thought I would only hear from my counselor when I did a phone or video chat. After my first video session on a Saturday she followed up with me after the weekend to check on me. I know that anytime I feel overwhelmed or uncertain I have the ability to send Britani a message and I always get a prompt response. I would highly recommend Britani Lalone to anyone looking for an enthusiastic and engaged counselor.
I have changed therapist twice! Once I started with Britani I felt her genuine care, I saw she was taking notes and she always knew to ask the right questions and listen effectively, I feel comfortable talking to her and opening up about my feelings. She is attentive, empathetic and courteous. It shows that she really cares about what she does, she also gives more time in the session, I honestly never felt that she would just want to end the call. The kind of help she provides helped me a lot with what Im going through, I feel happy after each session with her. Thank you Britani.
