BELIEVING THAT "STORY" CAN HAVE A POWERFUL IMPACT IN RELATIONSHIP TO OURSELVES AND THOSE AROUND US....
Brittany was drawn to the field of mental health to inspire others to become catalysts for change in their own lives. While she specializes in emotional and disordered eating, Brittany offers a holistic approach to a wide range of issues including: relational conflict, anxiety, depression, perfectionism, navigating adulthood and work/life balance.
After earning her Master’s Degree in systemic analysis from Fairfield University, Brittany became dually licensed in the state of New York and Connecticut as a marriage and family therapist. Her skill set is a culmination of working with adolescents and adults within residential and partial hospital settings, as well as at intensive outpatient and non-profit agency settings.
While in private practice, Brittany began to recognize that our relationship with food often mirrors our soul's experience in life. This led to furthering her education at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, where she became certified as an Eating Psychology Coach (EPC); an innovative approach that merges mind/body nutrition science with dynamic eating psychology. When she is not at her private practice in Ardsley, Brittany serves as the Assistant Clinical Director for Monte Nido's Eating Disorder Center of Westchester.
Brittany aims for the personal evolution of each individual client by integrating techniques from systemic therapy, EMDR, shame resilience, mindfulness-based CBT, CPT and wellness coaching.

Trauma Therapy - 60 minute session
Offering new hope for those struggling with small or large fears, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), is an evidenced-based treatment applied to a broad range of issues: phobias, performance anxieties, depression, body dysmorphia, grief, and trauma. EMDR accesses the area of the brain that generates creative thinking during REM sleep; allowing the mind to expand its perception of solutions while reducing intensely stressful emotions. Proven to shift negative core beliefs into positive ones and capable of healing disturbing memories more rapidly than other treatment modalities, EMDR has earned its long-standing reputation as a"power" therapy. Brittany is also trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy; an evidenced-based treatment modality proven to reduce or eliminate the symptology of PTSD.
“Brittany brings light to her sessions; she is wise, understanding, and passionate about what she does. She creates a space that allows her clients to feel safe enough to be vulnerable, in some cases for the first time, and each individual walks away feeling understood and connected.”
