BRITTANY BUFFINGTON, PCC, MFT | Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Brittany’s interest in our social world began in middle school when she was selected as Peer Mediator and continued with her study of social science in high school. Impassioned by the coursework she pursued sociology in undergrad where she decided she wanted to apply her extensive knowledge in a meaningful and authentic way. Accordingly she changed paths from PhD in Sociology to a Masters program specializing in Family and Gender with the intent to pursue a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. 

This education change supported her core belief in the need to explore individual choice versus societal expectations. In the field for six years, she specializes in Early Childhood Mental Health and enjoys working with children, adolescents, families and adults. She implements a variety of techniques grounded in Family Systems theories as well as Cognitive Behavior techniques with an awareness of societal dynamics to help others gain a sense of control over their lives. 

“We do not live in a vacuum and I believe it is vital that for deeper insight, self-awareness and change to be aware of individual, familial, cultural and societal influences on ourselves.”

As a therapist, Brittany provides a safe space for exploring and processing feelings and experiences. She takes a holistic approach to support growth, insight and deeper satisfaction. Her open, warm and expressive personality allows her clients to feel comfortable so they can move forward authentically in both a healthy and fulfilling way.
