Brittany works with young adults facing mental health challenges such as anxiety, self-esteem, body image and past trauma. She works with you to recognize your personal challenges and develop strategies to overcome them. She’ll help you be more confident in yourself, both mentally and physically by developing self-compassion, and learning the unique personal impact of unrealistic societal ideals. Brittany works with you to challenge your inner critic and increase your self-confidence by recognizing your self-worth, challenging your negative thinking, and establishing healthy boundaries in your life. Brittany will help you to understand your trauma history, identify trauma responses and break patterns and behaviours caused by past trauma.
Brittany provides a safe, non-judgemental, and validating space for you to share your experiences in a way that feels honest and authentic to you. She’ll work collaboratively with you to tailor your therapy experience to fit your unique needs and lifestyle. Brittany believes that you are the expert and will help you use your own strengths and experiences to achieve your goals and make positive change in your life. She believes that therapy should be a space for honest communication, and encourages you to share feedback about sessions in order to strengthen the therapeutic relationship.
Being from Northwestern Ontario, Brittany enjoys spending a lot of her time outside. You can find her running, cycling, and going for walks in her free time. She also enjoys traveling, especially when it’s to go see a concert. Brittany has an English Bulldog, who loves to watch TV and take naps. Just like her dog, Brittany believes in prioritizing intentional rest, and giving herself time to relax and recharge. She believes that part of self-care is finding joy in the little things, for her that’s listening to her favourite playlists and spending time with her family and friends.
