• BETTER BEING COUNSELING​

  • ABOUT

    Brittany Levy, LCPC

    Using my years of experience as a therapist, I strive to create sessions that allow people to feel both safe and open in sharing their stories with me. I am a compassionate, nonjudgmental, and exploratory therapist. I enjoy using humor, understanding, and experience to achieve this space.

     

    I believe everyone is the expert in their own lives and therapy is a tool to increase understanding of yourself and the world around you. I'd like to work with you to find new ways to manage your world. I will work along side you to create change and understanding by recognizing patterns, identifying ways to overcome barriers, and finding alternative ways to make decisions in your life.

     

    I treat each person I meet with an open mind, tailoring my therapeutic approach to meet the unique needs of the individual. I utilize feedback and honesty, motivating my clients for action. Further information on therapeutic styles used can be found in the Services section.

     

    I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, Sociology, and Human Development/Family Studies from Indiana University. I earned my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, Counseling from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have extensive experience working with adolescents and adults. I have worked in non-profit and private practice settings to treat psychiatric crises, outpatient substance abuse, and mental health services. I have experience and a skill set that provides knowledge to work with a variety of concerns.

     

    In my free time I enjoy spending time exploring Chicago with my family and friends. I have many interests that range from reading at home to exploring my community and city. I value learning, bringing this desire for knowledge to my personal and professional life.

    Approaches

    • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy: Using mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress techniques.
    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Understanding relationship of beliefs, thoughts and feelings; identifying behavior and patterns.
    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: Live in a way that fits personal values and increases flexibility.
    • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): A form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. Part of the therapy includes alternating eye movements, sounds, or taps. Rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, EMDR allows the brain to resume its natural healing process.
