Great to meet you!

Hi! My name is Brittany and I'm a clinical social worker based in Staten Island, New York. I have experience working with adults struggling with anxiety, ADHD, and depression as well as general life issues, like relationships, family dynamics, gender & sexuality (LGBTQIA+ friendly!), and navigating emotions in a pandemic.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I view therapy as a way of organizing a person's thoughts. When we feel overwhelmed and/or anxious, our thoughts become tangled and messy. My role is to help you to untangle those thoughts and help you see things clearer. I'm here to help you determine your own pathway.

What you can expect from our first session

I purposely bring my authentic self to each and every session. Before we start working together, I do a 10-15 minute phone consultation to get a better idea of your current situation and to see if we are a good fit. At the end of the phone consultation, we will discuss the next steps which usually include scheduling the first session.
