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 experience working with children, families, parents, and adults in an educational setting, both as a teacher and a school counselor. My background in education informs my practice as a therapist.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults ages 3-18 years old, as well as with young adults, parents, and adults of all ages and stages. I support clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, oppositional behaviors, grief and loss, self-esteem, relationships, life transitions, traumatic experiences, college or career choices, and parenting. I also have perinatal mental health training through Postpartum Support International and have a special interest in working with birthing people, partners, and families through issues related to fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, perinatal loss, and family adjusting during this time.
With children, 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.
When working with parents, I assist parents in better understanding behaviors in themselves and their children, leading to increased insight on family dynamics. I support parents who desire to gain a deeper understanding of themselves in order to better provide a positive environment for themselves and their children. I also help parents identify concrete strategies for responding to their own triggers and their child's behaviors to increase positive parent/child dynamics.
When working with adults, I provide space for clients to explore their life experiences and current concerns leading to greater understanding of connections between client perception of self and behaviors.
When supporting all clients, 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. With clients of all ages, I am passionate about utilizing the following approaches: expressive arts, sandtray, and mindfulness. At times, I utilize elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Brittany is available to support clients in-person and virtually in North Carolina.
