Professional Philosophy       

In her own words, “Everyone needs a safe place and someone to talk to every now and then. I believe that counseling can be that safe place to help you invest time in yourself and build yourself up. Being able to find someone you can connect with, open up to, and feel comfortable with creates the groundwork for a successful counseling experience. I am passionate about helping each of my clients achieve their goals and the quality of life they are reaching for.”

Professional Experience

Brittany has spent 16 years in the VA Army National Guard and is currently still serving in the Guard as a Sergeant First Class.
