Brittany is a Clinical Social Work Associate interested in the connections between mental and environmental health. Their journey to the mental health field began after working in wildlife biology and ecology for a number of years. They hold an MSW with a focus on working in Indigenous and Rural communities from Cal Poly Humboldt and previously received an Associates in Natural Resources from Columbia College and a Bachelors in Visual Art and Literature from Bennington College. Brittany has experience in wilderness therapy working with high-needs individuals and as a school social worker with K-12th grade students. They are certified in Yoga Calm social-emotional yoga for youth and received their Pupil Personnel Services Credential through the state of California. Brittany is also recently trained in Brainspotting, a somatic trauma therapy similar to EMDR. Brittany’s practice is guided by transpersonal and humanistic psychology, with a focus on ecotherapy, trauma, attachment, mindfulness, somatics, art therapy, and grief work. Brittany also hosts monthly Eco Grief and Anxiety Circles. They are interested in working with people of all ages, families, grievers, historically marginalized communities such as LGBTQ+ youth and Indigenous peoples, and anyone seeking to deepen their relationship with themselves and the Earth.

  • How nature is incorporated into the therapeutic approach:Brittany's therapeutic approach incorporates nature both in setting and orientation. They believe that simply participating in healing work in an outdoor setting has therapeutic benefits that, for many folks, far outweigh being in an office. Brittany primarily uses mindfulness, somatic practices, and nature-based metaphor in working with animals, plants, fungi, weather, etc. toward supporting clients in better understanding/making sense of themselves, their behaviors, and the world around them. These connections and experiential encounters are emergent within the therapeutic space. Brittany also holds the belief that when we feel most alone and severed from our sense of belonging in the world, reconnection to the Earth is fundamental in re-establishing that sense of belonging.
