Many therapists adopt a theoretical orientation - which provides the therapist with a conceptual framework for understanding a Client’s needs and for formulating a rationale for specific interventions. Brittany’s theoretical orientation is based in Existential Psychotherapy. However, she is trained in CBT, trauma work, Farm Response, and a variety of other treatment approaches. An Existential approach takes a philosophical and intellectual approach to therapy and sees humans as having the capacity for self-awareness, experiencing tension between freedom and responsibility, creating an identity and establishing meaningful relationships, searching for the meaning, purpose and values of life, accepting anxiety as a condition of living, and being aware of death and non-being.
Brittany began serving the Concho Valley in 2007. She is a United States Air Force Veteran and was stationed in San Angelo in 2005 for her training as an Intelligence Analyst. While in San Angelo for her training, Brittany fell in love with San Angelo, its university, and her people. Brittany attended Angelo State University for both her masters and her bachelor degrees in Psychology and Counseling Psychology, respectively.
During her time in the Concho Valley, Brittany has served in the following areas: United States Veteran Administration, Mental Health Crisis, HIV/AIDS Ryan White Clinic, Children’s Advocacy Center-CASA, local animal rescue and fostering, ASU Counseling Center, NAMI, and a variety of other local volunteer activities to include Rust Street Ministries. After graduating from the ASU Counseling Psychology Program, Brittany recognized the need for local mental health practitioners and felt called to act. Thus, Brittany made the decision to begin her own private psychotherapy practice.
In her spare time, Brittany enjoys her family, including her partner of 16 years and five rescue pups, music, dreaded cardio/weight training, thrift shopping, enriching her friendships, and enjoying life's simple pleasures.
