Brittany Larsen, AMFT
Approach to Therapy:
I became a therapist because I have a deep desire to help others heal their emotional wounds and live richer, fuller lives. I believe we hold the answers we are looking for within us but sometimes need help accessing our inner strength and wisdom to uncover them. That is why I practice from a collaborative perspective, giving clients the space and time to go at their own pace while never leaving their side. I like to meet clients where they are and gently introduce a safe and accepting space to explore past and present challenges, identify obstacles, and increase self-awareness and personal growth.
I am an LGBTQ affirming therapist, who integrates a feminist, relational model that recognizes all intersections of my clients’ identities. I have experience working with anxiety and depression, issues related to motherhood and new parenthood, identity and relationship exploration, as well as family of origin issues. I enjoy working with families and couples looking to increase loving and respectful communication, redefine their relationship, strengthen boundaries, and deepen connections.
Education and Training:
I hold a bachelor’s degree from The Evergreen State College in Performance Studies and a master’s degree in Couples and Family Therapy from Northeastern Illinois University. I welcome the opportunity to work with couples, families, and individuals from a variety of different backgrounds.
