Britt is a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor (LAPC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Wofford College and earned her Master’s in Education and Education Specialist degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Clemson University. Prior to earning her Master’s, Britt gained clinical experience while working at the Marcus Autism Center (MAC) in Atlanta as a behavioral data analyst. At MAC, Britt had the opportunity to utilize Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) treatment on the Severe Behavior Unit, working with children, adolescents and young adults with severe behavioral difficulties. Britt then spent a year working at Art It Out as the Clinical and Administrative Assistant. This role provided Britt the rare opportunity to assist in facilitating social skills and DBT groups. In her administrative role, Britt enjoyed the process of helping families and individual clients alike find the right counselor to meet their specific needs. Seeing all the wonderful work the counselors at Art It Out did helped Britt discover that counseling was her passion, too! After experiencing firsthand the important work being done by the counselors at Art It Out, Britt made it her goal to pursue her Master’s degree and return to the company as a counselor.
While earning her Master’s degree, Britt added to her clinical experience by completing a practicum at Carolina Family Services in Greenville, SC. She then served as an intern at Converse College Wellness Center, providing individual therapy to college-aged students.
Britt leverages the power of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and expressive arts techniques to help her clients and their families achieve their goals. Britt believes in the importance of taking a person-centered approach to therapy and creating a climate for growth by being genuine and nonjudgmental. Britt has experience and enjoys helping individuals with anxiety, depression, poor self-esteem, family or relational issues, gender identity exploration, grief, and trauma.
Britt is currently working under the supervision of Teresa Woodruff, LPC, ATR-BC, CPCS.
