BRITTANY SHERMAN, LMSW

Psychotherapist

Trying to process any burden in the world of social media and pressure from society can be challenging. When creating change having open communication in your relationships is important but at times you need someone who can be along for the ride without judgement. This is where Brittany comes in. Brittany's theory is that when people can learn to challenge their mind and replace beliefs, thoughts and attitudes that are no longer serving them, people are free to experience change. Change is not a straight path, this is why working with a therapist can be more empowering. Brittany provides a safe place for setbacks, while working through them and using them as learning opportunities without having judgement or expectations of you. Brittany is passionate about helping you get back to the person you want yourself to be, despite trauma, triggers or behaviors you may experience. Change and working through trauma can be terrifying, but when accomplished it can help you create the life you want to live.


Brittany works with children, adults, families, and couples, specializing in trauma, complex trauma, and secondary trauma. She also works with individuals with sexually reactive behaviors, self-esteem concerns, relational trauma, mood disorders, and many others. Brittany completed her master’s degree in social work from Wayne State University and enjoys creating goals in therapy that you are comfortable with and invested in and because Brittany believes in the importance of the therapeutic relationship, she uses a blend of Psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused, Reality Based, and Psycho-education to best work with your needs. Whatever it is you are working through, Brittany is confident that together, you can work through it and create the change you want.
