She received her Masters of Social Work from Simmons University and has been working as a clinician in various settings for thirteen years. Brittany is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (Therapist) who specializes in treating trauma, familial issues, parenting skills work, mood disorders, and anxiety/depression.
Some of Brittany’s specialties include doing work with somatic/sensorimotor trauma processing, and loves incorporating mindfulness practices into therapy. Brittany is committed to making sure no one is invisible and sees mental health treatment as a way of strengthening the broken places until people feel WHOLE again.
She also has many talents including dance through her studies of Ballet and Modern dance in Purchase, NY. Sometimes she likes to include body work into the therapy practice as well. She loves working with adults, particularly parents, as well as adolescents and families to help heal relationships.
Melissa McLamb, Counselor in Training (CIT)
Aubrie was born and raised in Texas but moved to North Carolina when her husband was stationed here by the Marine Corps. Aubrie’s path to become a counselor was different than most. She attended Texas A&M University where she completed her bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Master’s in Business Management. In college, Aubrie came to realize her passion for people through her time mentoring younger girls, volunteering at a safe house for sex trafficking victims, caring for teenage girls as a camp counselor, and serving in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya on a summer mission trip. After college, Aubrie moved forward with becoming a Certified Public Accountant. After working in the accounting industry for four years, Aubrie decided to step out and begin pursuing her passion of walking alongside people through the joys and hardships that life brings, ultimately towards greater health and wellness.
Aubrie is currently working on her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Liberty University with the end goal of obtaining her LPC (licensed professional counselor). In her clinical training thus far, Aubrie has experience working with children, adolescents and adults. Aubrie considers it an honor to walk alongside of those that are hurting, working together toward healing through whole-hearted and well-balanced living. She believes each person is unique and therapy should be tailored to fit their specific needs. She also offers integration of Christian counseling into the therapeutic process upon request.
If you’d like to meet with Aubrie, she is available for self-pay clients at only $30 per session since she is still training. Aubrie is a very discerning individual, and offers a plethora of life-experiences and knowledge to most situations.
