Brittany Proctor, MA, LPC, LCDC

Sometimes an outside perspective can help us determine how to move forward.  I know the idea of starting therapy can be weird; especially with a total stranger.  When we meet, I will dedicate myself to learning about you.  I will foster a space without judgement that you can use to explore your own habits and thoughts.  We will work as a team to identify what’s holding you back and then create a plan to move forward.  I believe in natural resilience within all people, and focus on helping you build strong coping skills to return to your point of optimal functioning. 

I believe in a collaborative, individualized approach to therapy and tailor science-based interventions to each session.  While I am your therapist, I will also function as your educational coach to teach you about various strategies to improve your wellness.  i will also provide your with encouragement to maintain the change you do decide to make.  Therapy can be helpful for many people to explore their thoughts, emotions,  and help guide change.  Some people need a sounding board, others may want a differing opinion.  Therapy looks different for each person, and I’m here to help you determine what works best for you.
