Brittany Clark, LMFT Associate

Hi, my name is Brittany Clark. I am a wife and mother to 3 fun-loving kids who simultaneously fill me with joy and also make me want to pull my hair out sometimes! When I am not busy chasing them around I enjoy traveling, exercising and spending time with my closest friends. My appreciation for these relationships is what motivates me to work with couples and individuals to enhance both physical and emotional intimacy, improve communication, navigate conflict and create meaningful and lasting relationships in their lives.  I strive to create an environment of acceptance that cultivates comfort, vulnerability, and individual improvement so that my clients can reach their goals and live happy and fulfilling lives!

relationships are foundational to the way we interact, respond, and navigate life’s surprises. Therefore, providing tools to build and maintain healthy relationships is an important piece in helping individuals, couples, and families meet their therapeutic goals. I am open and welcoming and offer a safe place for clients to work through their concerns. My genuine interest in the well-being of others is the reason I am committed to helping people and truly empathetic to the trauma, challenges, or obstacles they are facing.
