Brittany Kauppi, MA, LMFT

Navigating life is not simple, and everyone has their own unique combination of current stressors, relationships and life experiences. There are moments when you need someone outside of your circumstances to help sort through painful emotions, relationships issues, or everyday pressures. I believe that healing happens in relationships and I want to partner with you and your family to identify a path towards wholeness and change.

I believe that my job is to create a safe and non-judgmental space to sift through the experiences, events and beliefs in your life. I want to support you whether you are struggling with parenting, concerned about your child, hoping to find a new way to connect with your partner, managing a big life change, or simply want life to look different. I work with individuals and families to identify old patterns that are no longer working, and collaborating in creating new ways of being.

I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and families from a wide variety of backgrounds with concerns around anxiety, depression, parenting, trauma, relationship issues, attachment, disordered eating, body image issues and self-worth. Some of the approaches I draw from are attachment theory, family systems, play therapy, self-compassion, art therapy, IFS, and DBT.
