ONLINE THERAPY IN
AGES WORK WITH
I believe in taking on a holistic approach in therapy which focuses on you, the client. I take everything into account that can affect you, this includes relationships, the environment, spirituality, health & wellness to help you find balance, growth and healing.
I use a humanistic or client-centered approach to counseling. This approach to counseling focuses on facilitating a therapeutic alliance that is built on trust, authenticity, empathy and meeting clients where they are at. I believe that each client and their experiences are unique, therefore they know themselves best.
My aim as a counselor is to provide guidance, support and a safe space that encourages growth and healing. Therapy is not a one size fits all, therefore my approach is to tailor one’s treatment to best fit their needs.
Brittnie's Other Specialities
Managing life’s stressors can be challenging and learning how we respond to ourselves, others, and our environment can play a vital role in how we feel.
This is why I like to integrate DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) skills into the work we do together. Skills such as emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness can help reduce the negative emotions brought on by life’s challenges. Together, we can help you develop the tools and resources to get you through life’s toughest challenges.
More About Brittnie
A Houston born native who loves good food, spending time outdoors and going on an adventure. When I’m not out and about I’m stretching my creative muscles either sewing, drawing, or crafting something new. I believe art is all around us which is why I love spending time in nature’s beauty. I geek out on anything sci-fi/ fantasy, enjoy chilling with my cat and always down for a good laugh!
