When you meet Brittani, you’ll feel comforted by her caring presence and genuine approach. Brittani’s light-hearted nature — paired with her sincere desire to help you meet your personal goals — will help you feel at ease and confident in your treatment.
Mental health issues can be hard to cope with; they can make the simplest things feel impossible. Brittani believes that helping you find happiness in everyday life and to rediscover what life means to you are important steps in overcoming this.
It’s also important to Brittani that you have an individualized treatment plan that best suits you. Even if you share the same diagnosis with someone else, your experiences, genetics, lifestyle, values, and goals are unique to you. That’s why Brittani takes pride in staying mindful of this individuality and making it an essential factor when developing a healing plan.
Brittani understands that starting psychiatric medications can be a difficult decision and is willing to take the time to discuss different options with you. She’ll take the time to help you understand your diagnosis, your medication options, and what current research indicates that you may experience going forward. She’ll ensure that you understand why a particular medication is (or is not) recommended for you.
