Registered Social Worker
Availability: Evenings & Saturdays
Education and Experience:
Brittani is a Registered Social Worker (RSW). She
holds a BA in Child and Youth Studies from Brock
University, a BSW from The University of Victoria and an
MSW from Wilfrid Laurier University.
She has been working in the social services field since
2013. After working for many years n various settings,
her heart landed in private practice.
Areas of Interest:
She works primarily with relationships/attachment, self-worth,
perinatal mental health, eating disorders, body-image,
perfectionism, anxiety and those who are processing adverse,
difficult or traumatic experiences.
It is a special interest of hers to support individuals as they navigate family dynamics, childhood experiences, parent/child relationships and attachment styles as they become adults, including through the perinatal period as clients become parents themselves.
She also enjoys working with youth and young adults but sees clients of all ages.
Brittani operates under the belief that we all come to therapy with complex experiences that often connect and impact our lives in different ways. Therefore, her approach will always honour your story, and how the parts of it weave together. She has prioritized relational, client-centered, compassion focused and strength-based practice in her role as a social worker. This means she views her work as being able to provide guidance, supports and services according to clients self-expressed needs and/or challenges. It also means she operates under the belief and understanding that all clients intrinsically possess the strength and resilience to cope with whatever barriers they are facing and she is simply a guide or support along the way.
Types of Therapy & Training:
An integrated theoretic framework, including mainly systemic but also person-centred, feminist and post-modern theories guides her work. She also prioritizes anti-oppressive practice. She has completed many hours of trauma training including (but not limited to) EMDR therapy, developmental trauma, parts work and trauma-centered psychotherapy. She has also completed many trainings focused in perinatal mental health, including advanced EMDR. Otherwise, her work is mostly informed by narrative therapy. She has also trained in and will at times use EFT, DBT, compassion focused therapy and CBT in her work.
Brittani doesn’t tend to adhere to a specific therapeutic modality all the time. She draws on techniques from various approaches dependant on what is needed and what makes sense to her clients. She take pride in being able to flow through emotions, experiences and techniques with clients to truly meet them where they are at.
Personally, Brittani was drawn to social work after years of struggling with a social anxiety disorder without knowing where to turn for services or support. She wants her work to help others by being their place to turn to. When she's not working, she is spending time with her family, reading or walking her dog, Hugo.
