To Brittany, the body is more than just a vessel where stories are held. She believes the body is
a channel of memories, a sacred space for vulnerability, and an entity for radical introspection.
A creative and mind-body-spirit approach to therapy is what clients will experience when
working with Brittany. She is a queer black Dance/ Movement therapist, adjunct professor,
community psychoeducator, and artist originally from Dallas, Texas. Brittany studied at Drexel
University where she obtained a Master’s degree in Dance/ Movement Therapy & Counseling.

Her therapeutic framework is grounded in relational/cultural, narrative, and social justice
approaches. She has experience working in inpatient behavioral health and community based
mental health facilities. Brittany seeks to edify clients by honoring them as experts of their own
lives. She embraces the rawness within a client’s story and encourages them to show up
authentically and unapologetically.

Brittany is passionate about normalizing discussions around sexuality, sensuality, identity,
sexual trauma, and pleasure within the black community. Her focus is on prioritizing the
experiences of LGBTQIA+ folks by creating therapeutic spaces that are both accessible and
safe. Brittany loves working with youth and adults of all ages. Her specialties and interests
include helping clients work through various forms of trauma, religious and sexual shame, grief
& loss, depression, relationships, anger, workplace/ institutional discrimination, abandonment,
and body image.

Outside of the therapeutic space, you will find Brittany taking dance classes, making flower
arrangements, organizing and decorating spaces, indulging in the art of calligraphy, collecting
vinyl, and spending time with loved ones.
