Get to know Brittany

Brittany Ertz specializes in working with individual teens, young adults, adults, couples, and families who are struggling with trauma. She also specializes in treating self-harm, anxiety, depression, and life transitions.  Brittany understands that our lives can feel broken and fragmented, we look down at the pieces and wonder how we got here. She has a way of connecting our current experiences to our past to heal for our future, to mold those broken pieces together. When working with teens, Brittany knows how to connect well with the younger generation and also strives for a whole family to be connected and healed. Pulling from her own childhood & adolescent experiences, she is committed to shielding her clients from the loneliness that comes from not being able to share their hurts, fear, and pain. 

Britt will connect, empathize, and support you as you dive into what seems uncomfortable at first, but in the end, is a beautiful journey. Using integrated therapies, she will help you learn how to discover and challenge your thoughts, uncover hidden or unresolved traumas, and heal from within oneself. She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which focuses on ultimately healing from traumatic memories. Emotion Focused Therapy for Adolescents (EFT), and Trauma Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TI-CBT) which will help validate and connect your interpersonal emotions whilst challenging unhelpful or harmful ways of thinking. 

You can trust Britt to create a welcoming and empathetic environment where you are able to explore the deepest facets of your thoughts and emotions. She works within the framework that you are the expert on your own life and you are allowing her to partner alongside you, to listen and to care so that you truly don’t feel alone in your life. 

She firmly believes that we are not alone in this world. Kintsuji is a Japanese art of bringing broken or fragmented pieces together by adding metal filaments, and her passion is to come alongside others as they experience their fragmented broken pieces, help mold them together to know the deep and meaningful healing that grows into a beautiful creation.


Each marriage is different and couples can often find themselves feeling stuck and unsure what to do next. Through her trauma lens Brittany helps couples identify and resolve past hurts, marital narratives, and recurring conflicts. Brittany feels that marriage is an extension of our deepest self and while it may reveal our weakest points, it offers a framework to provide the most unique way of healing as we share our experiences and truly learn to love one another. 

Fun Facts

Britt enjoys traveling, finding new coffee shops, going to the gym, and reading. She and her husband, Cisco, love serving at their church and enjoying the company of friends. 

One of Britt’s favorite quotes is by Irvin Yalom: 

“We cannot say to them you and your problems. Instead, we must speak of us and our problems, because our life, our existence, will always be riveted to death, love to loss, freedom to fear, and growth to separation. We are, all of us, in this together.”
