Brittany Hewitt is a licensed professional counselor and the clinical director of Heal ATL.  As a native to Atlanta, she attended Wesleyan School in Norcross before receiving her Bachelor of Science Degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, completing a double major in Psychology and American & Southern Studies with a concentration on Gender & Race Studies. Later deciding to pursue her passions of psychology and helping people, she finished her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Argosy University in Atlanta. Brittany’s clients appreciate her warm, inviting approach and her eclectic usage of a mix of evidence-based practices including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction to achieve each client’s specific goals. She holds space for her clients to gain self-awareness and confidence while processing their emotions, allowing for lasting positive changes to their thoughts and behaviors.

Brittany is an expert in multiple mental health areas and has advanced training to treat depression, anxiety, relationship issues, breakups/divorce, grief & loss, family issues, past traumas, chronic health-related problems, life transitions, low self-confidence and/or body image, binge eating, & obesity-related issues. In addition to her work as an individual therapist, Brittany is also an experienced group leader and facilitator of groups, focusing on self-compassion, mindfulness, women’s issues, grief & loss, and more.

Brittany is knowledgeable in helping adults and teens overcome some of life’s toughest challenges and is passionate about creating a space for her clients that allows vulnerability, openness and healing.  She empowers her clients with the tools to become their authentic self and encourages them to grow by developing compassion for themselves, others, and life. She is naturally giving, spiritually attuned and a great listener who seeks to understand her client’s goals and provide pathways for growth. Brittany offers a Christian’s perspective should her clients choose to incorporate this into their therapy. Her perspective on religion is broad, welcoming, and decidedly “Pro-Love.” Brittany invites her clients to bring their own faith or spiritual beliefs into their work together in whatever way feels appropriate to them.

Finally, Brittany's Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Pippa, is very close to her heart. Pippa is a therapy dog and is often in the office as Brittany's co-therapist.  Animals, especially dogs, have a special unconditional love and patience that helps people heal in remarkable ways.  Please let Brittany know ahead of time if you do not wish to have Pippa present at your appointment.

Kind WordS

from Clients

“The beginning of this year was the hardest time I've faced thus far. I never knew how strong or crippling depression could be. Now as the year ends, I can says it's been one of the best years of my life; and that would not have been possible without you.”

“I want to let you know how much I appreciate all you have done to help me and my family. You believed in me, and I was able to get past a really tough part of my life.”

“I truly believe you are a chosen person for God. Your compassion, strength, love, and support are beyond this world. Looking back on our time together, I know He has used you to be a light for me. And I couldn't be more grateful.”

“I really want to thank you so much for all you have done for us. Words seem insufficient but just know we are all better people because of you!”

“The greatest blessing of devoting my year to healing was that it brought me to you. You have helped me heal in ways and in places I didn't know needed healing. You have helped me untangle distorted and irrational thought processes, bringing clarity and peace. You have helped me dismantle long-believed lies about myself, about marriage, about relationships - and instead helped me re-write and re-define new truths about all of those things, giving me hope and joy. I cannot thank you enough for walking alongside me through life and through my year of healing.”
