Brittany Dent

(MA, LPC-S)

About Me

I am a mental health counselor with 8 years of experience in providing individual and family counseling. My goal as a counselor is to help clients tap into their full potential, so that they can bloom into their purpose. My counseling style incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy and reality therapy. I prefer to incorporate interventions and strategies that are tailored to meet the client's individual needs. It is important to me that I provide counseling services in an environment that respects the diversity and values of each client I encounter.


I am a graduate of Northwestern St. University in Natchitoches, LA. I received my Master's of Arts degree in Student Personnel Services, focusing in mental health counseling in 2010. I am a professional member of Louisiana Counselors Association and the American Counselors Association.


I am licensed with the Louisiana License Professional Counselors Board of Examiners to provide mental health and behavioral health diagnosis from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders (DSM V and DSM IV, as well as the ICD10). I am also registered as a board approved supervisor for PLPC's in the state of Louisiana. I am currently contracted and certified as a licensed mental health professional with Louisiana's Office of Behavioral Health through the Department of Health and Hospitals.


My mission as a counselor is to help clients take positive steps towards reaching their purpose in life. Through individual, family, and group counseling, I work to help clients identify specific areas of their lives that need improvement, while expanding their thinking to who they were created to be. I provide the tools to help clients begin the journey to their purpose. I look forward to working with you!

Brittany is an excellent counselor. She listens and provides excellent advice. She checks in on you during stressful times. She even gives homework to keep you motivated between sessions.

Brittany is an experienced, competent and empathetic counselor. Because of her I am now convinced that online counseling actually works! I would recommend Brittany to everyone who is struggling with anxiety or depression. The sessions were very productive and gave me much needed insight on how to improve my situation and understand my feelings. She also helped me a lot with my relationship problems and always answered very quickly when I was texting her between sessions.
