About me

My counseling style is supportive and non-judgmental. My purpose it to provide you with a safe place to process, grow and heal.
As a therapist I am here to empower, support and guide you on your journey of personal growth and change. I utilize a collaborative, holistic and strengths based approach to treatment. I believe in the importance of treating and healing mind, body and spirit for overall wellbeing.

I am a licensed independent clinician social worker, based in Massachusetts. I have been working in the the mental health field for 11 years. I have a Bachelors in Science from Bridgewater State University and a Masters in Social Work from Boston University. I have experience working in various settings, both inpatient and outpatient with clients dealing with a wide range of issues. I spent the first part of my career working in addiction treatment programs providing therapy and education to individuals and families. I spent 6 years contracted with State Prisons and County Jails working directly with incarcerated adult male clients providing services such as crisis intervention, anger management, substance abuse treatment and general supportive counselling . I've recently been working as a clinical director for a substance abuse treatment facility.

I am experienced with a variety of issues such as addictions, family issues, adjustment issues, self care, depression, anxiety and life changes. I take a special interest in positive psychology and working from a strengths based approach.

Well read and articulate, is extremely personable and makes you feel like you are confiding in a close friend or relative. Could not recommend her enough, I'm still pretty new to therapy and she is making the transition smooth and painless

I have struggled for many years of my life with depression and anxiety. After over 20 years of not dealing with it properly I signed up on this site. Brittany has been a wonderful asset in my fight to understand and control my anxiety and depression. I was afraid and nervous to talk with a counselor, but from my first phone call with her, she has made me feel absolutely comfortable, given me great advice, and been very understanding with whatever current situation I may have been confiding in her. Or asking for her advice on how to overcome my emotions. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for help.

I have a lot of respect for anyone working in this field of practice. Brittany, in one session, displayed amazing patience and kindness. I can’t imagine what kinds of things she has to deal with from other clients and patients, let alone in her personal life. She does amazingly to put her work before herself and truly goes beyond expectation. Everything from a commitment to help to even offering to provide assistance in finding other specialists, as time and life changes. I would confidently and happily recommend her to anyone going through BetterHelp!
