Brittany was drawn to the field of mental health to inspire others to become catalysts for change in their own lives. After earning her Master’s Degree in marriage and family therapy from Fairfield University, Brittany became dually licensed in the state of New York and Connecticut. Her skill set is a culmination of having applied systemic analysis to the treatment of eating disorders within residential, partial hospital, intensive outpatient and outpatient settings. Brittany believes in taking a client-centered approach to treatment which is rooted in the philosophy that true wellness is about reconnecting with your authentic self. 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. Brittany is also trained in EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Structural/Strategic Therapy.
Having worked in both clinical and supervisory capacities, Brittany aims for the personal evolution of each individual client and staff member. Brittany originally joined the Discovery family in 2014 as a counselor for the residential adult facility in Fairfield, CT. She later went on to serve as a program therapist for the adolescent residential facility in Southport as well as the outpatient program in Greenwich. She has experience providing individual, couple, family and group therapy within both private and non-profit organizations. In addition, Brittany has previously worked in a leadership role as an Assistant Clinical Director for an eating disorder outpatient program in New York. She particularly enjoys providing clinical supervision to help others develop their strengths around supporting their clients’ journey in recovery. Brittany is excited to be returning to the Center for Discovery team as the Program Director for the eating disorder outpatient program of Greenwich, CT.
