Brittany joins the Roots to Thrive team with a background in counselling, and brings 8+ years of experience working in the field of mental health and addictions. Experiencing the limitations of conventional approaches, she has gradually felt pulled in other directions. This led to a lot of learning and un-learning… a recognition that the conventional approach is a way, but it is not the only way, toward healing, health, and wellness. Brittany has mixed Northern European ancestry (Irish, Scottish, Welsh, English and mixed Scandinavian). She feels a deep appreciation for the natural beauty of the traditional and ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, and is grateful to live and work on Snuneymuxw territory.
