About me

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 very supportive and understanding. I feel like I am checking in and chatting with a peer - the discussions are very comfortable and not at all feeling like "answering to a doctor". :) Would definitely recommend Brittany to others.

Brittany is truly an amazing therapist. She’s helped me tremendously through navigating past trauma and how it’s impacted my life today. Even when I don’t have much to talk about during a session I can still feel comfortable just talking about my week and what’s been going on. She’s great

She's helpful, kind, and a great listener. I dumped a lot on her and she's flowing with all this beautifully.
