Her practice is located in Whitby, Ontario and serves clients in the surrounding Durham region. Much of Brittany’s work focuses on child and adolescent issues, transitions and adjustment, anxiety, depression, anger management, stress management, communication, relationship issues, trauma and recovery, confidence, self-esteem, and identity issues.
Brittany believes that each person is the expert in their own life and using a client-centered, holistic, collaborative approach to counselling, she is able to provide a unique counselling experience that caters to each client’s unique background, strengths, and goals.
