Hi there, my name is Brittany Webber. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA), a Licensed School Counselor (LSC), a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and therapist at CFMC. I am also actively working toward becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). I completed my bachelor’s degree at Appalachian State University and my master’s degree at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in private and public school settings and in both traditional and Montessori environments. I have over seven years of experience working with children and families in an educational setting, both as a teacher and a school counselor. My background in education informs my practice as a therapist and my desire to support children, adolescents, and adults.
I work from a Person-Centered approach and truly believe that the relationship between client and clinician is the most important factor for client growth. I work with children and adolescents ages 3-18 years old, as well as with young adults. I support clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, oppositional behaviors, grief and loss, self-esteem, relationships, life transitions, traumatic experiences, and college or career choices.
I specialize in the use of child-centered play therapy, a developmentally appropriate therapeutic technique that allows children to express themselves using toys and play within an intentionally created playroom. This approach allows children to gain confidence, process life events, develop personal responsibility, and learn limits. Additionally, I utilize the following approaches when working with children, adolescents, and young adults: expressive arts, sandtray, and mindfulness.
