Brittany works with young adults to help them address depression, anxiety, and stress. These issues can often manifest because of other challenges like low self-esteem, body image issues, or past trauma. Brittany can help you explore your thoughts and feelings, and increase self-awareness. In the short term, she’ll help you develop strategies to manage anxiety and stress, and in the long term she’ll help you address the root causes of your challenges.
Brittany also works with people affected by past trauma. This could be a specific traumatic event or long-term exposure to trauma. Brittany can help you understand, identify, and break habits caused by past trauma. She’ll help you address guilt and shame, and overcome communication and relationship challenges. She’ll support you to develop self-care practices that include physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
Brittany is from Northwestern Ontario and understands the issues that people from isolated rural communities face (e.g., fewer mental health resources, social isolation, dual relationships with professionals, etc.). She will ensure that therapy is accessible and relevant to you. Brittany provides a safe, non-judgmental space to share your experiences and develop a new sense of self. Brittany believes that you are the expert. She’ll help you build on your strengths to make positive changes in your life.
