Welcome to BetterHelp. Life events can cause anyone to experience symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. How you respond to these symptoms makes all the difference in your overall health. Together we will work to identify your goals of managing these symptoms and develop steps to reduce their affect on your day to day life. Sometimes these life events are traumatic, which can cause much longer term effects on your health. Processing trauma, no matter how long ago it happened, is vital to moving forward past the traumatic event.
A little bit about me personally. I am a Southern Illinois native. I attended SIU and completed my Bachelor’s of Social Work in December of 2012. After taking a semester off, I moved forward to obtain my Masters of Social Work which I completed in May of 2014. Since completing my education, I have worked as a therapist with adolescents with extreme trauma in a residential setting. I then worked with the public schools in Williamson County to provide therapy in the schools to students with a variety of disorders, including behavior disturbances. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in an outpatient setting for the past 3 years. I have found that therapy is my passion and I look forward to helping you discover how therapy can improve your quality of life.

Brittany is amazing and is so good at putting me at ease and having me be comfortable to talk about the uncomfortable stuff. I always looking forward to talking with her.
She’s the best. I love her
This was my first time seeking counseling for myself, and I was matched with Brittany off the bat. As I was nervous from the get-go, Brittany was understanding, patient, and open to any issues I wished to discuss. I've been working with her digitally for the last 4 months during COVID over a variety of topics, ranging from home life, to work life, to my personal relationships. Each session she's been able to help me, be it through personal worksheets, establishing helpful habits, or simply listening to (and engaging with) me as a reasonably objective 3rd party. I've really enjoyed my time with her, and found this experience to be incredibly beneficial!
I really appreciate working with Brittany. She is a great listener, and had the ability to quickly establish a warm connection between us so that we could really get to work.
She is perceptive, responsive and supportive. She is insightful and has a breadth of information readily available to support it. I am glad to have found this resource!
I have absolutely loved working with Brittany. She has been extremely helpful and supportive. She genuinely listens to me and makes me feel accepted.
I’ve been working with Brittany for about a month and it’s been going really well! She responds quickly, thoughtfully, and asks just the right questions. I’ve tried in-person therapy once before and have done chat sessions with Brittany, and I feel I get the same level of attention and care over chat than I did in-person. Definitely recommend and am so happy with my experience.
Kind and compassionate
Brittany and I connected because she listens to me and helps me to understand myself. I share things wither her that I can't share with anybody else in my life.
My counselor has been great so far. We are still getting to know each other.
Brittany is a homie. She is a good listening and calls me out when I'm avoiding issues, which is something I needed.
Very helpful during these crazy times.
It’s still very early in our counselor patient relationship. But so far I really do enjoy the outlet I have with Brittany. She seems to understand what I am saying and is respectful and helpful in her responses.
I feel very listened to and respected with Brittany. She knows the questions to ask and I find myself actually being able to express my concerns without them being over looked.
