Mental Health Therapist
My name is Brittany and I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor with a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Lethbridge. Prior to pursuing a career in counselling I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Education with a minor in Special Education, gaining experience teaching at both a junior high and senior high level. I have experience working in a variety of settings, including with the school system, in the non-profit sector, on crisis phone lines, and in private practice.
I utilize a client-centered approach to empower children, teens, adults, and families, and I strive to help clients gain personal awareness and work towards positive change. It is my belief that no two people, nor their stories, are the same, and so I favour a dynamic therapeutic approach in order to tailor my approach to the needs of each individual. I place an emphasis on attachment theory, neurobiological research, and on fostering the therapeutic relationship.
I have completed training in addictions treatment, Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) for Children and Youth, Art Therapy, mindfulness practices, Narrative Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and advanced training in Play Therapy.
