Brit is a compassionate, empathetic individual who is passionate about supporting others on their own unique journey towards change, growth, self love and healing. She holds a strong belief that we all have an innate ability to heal (mind, body, soul) and her goal is to help guide others to look within, become empowered and learn to trust in themselves, their voice, strengths, and ability to create a life of love, health and happiness. Brit believes that when we start to act more in alignment with who we are at our core we start the process of healing and becoming free.
Brit offers a safe, integrative, holistic and highly individual therapeutic experience that blends different treatment/healing approaches, focusing on adult attachment and bonding, shedding light on emotional wounds so they can be healed as well as healing trauma at a nervous system level. Her career/journey began almost 20 years ago after acquiring a diploma in Social Service Work. She began providing counselling to street youth, followed by working with individuals with brain injury where she received training on brain function, trauma on the brain, neuroplasticity and the science of brain healing. She completed a post-graduate/diploma program in Addictions Counselling. Brit has received various training on trauma and is passionate about continuing to learn about the impact of unresolved trauma on the mind and body and how to heal at the nervous system level. She also has training in couples therapy and truly believes in the power of using relationship as a path to healing.
