About me

Hello! Thank you for considering me as your counselor.

I am a therapist with more than five years of experience and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia. I work from a client-centered, solution focused model. I also utilize approaches such as strengths based and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My experience spans may levels of care to include, inpatient, Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient. I have a history of working with individuals with a wide range of concerns to include trauma, depression, anxiety, other mood disorders, family difficulties and more. Most of my experience includes working with families as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community.

I believe that the most important pieces of working with a therapist are building a trusting relationship and working towards self-identified goals. I am here to help you with whatever you need and I look forward to a partnership with you. We will work together while we both learn and grow!

Brittany was the best thing that could happen to me this year. She’s helped me through my worst, and keeps dragging me out from the deep down. Always ready to help, very kind and understanding and just adorable. I’m very lucky and grateful to have met her. Thank you for everything and so much more.

Brittany has been extremely helpful in my journey of mental health and recovery. I would recommend her expertise for anyone suffering from anxiety disorder.
