UB Welcomes New Therapist, Britt Young, AMFT to Libertyville Office

Britt Young, AMFT

Britt Young is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with extensive experience treating children, adolescents, and adults who are in crisis or struggling with life transitions, anxiety, and/or depression. She also works with couples and families who are experiencing relational problems and helps them reconnect and redefine their relationships.

In the past, Britt has worked with children and families who have faced sexual abuse, neglect, and separation. She has also worked closely with families whose children have been diagnosed ADHD, Reactive Attachment Disorder, or Oppositional Defiant Disorder. By providing an empathetic and therapeutic environment, she provides a safe space for clients to examine their choices and create a path to healing, while challenging them to take responsibility for their behaviors and interactions.

Britt tailors her interventions to the needs of her clients and takes great care to understand the entirety of the situation. One moment, you may find her surrounded by dolls and drawings during a play therapy session with a child. The next, she may be using strategic therapy techniques to help an adult client determine why his efforts to solve the problem are making it worse. Or, you could see her helping a couple in conflict learn how to communicate and restore intimacy through emotionally focused therapy techniques.

Britt earned her Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University in Honolulu, HI. In addition, she is a registered mediator and specializes in high conflict divorce and parent coordination.

We are now accepting new clients for telehealth or in-person therapy sessions! Please give us a call (888) 726-7170 or email intake@urbanbalance.com to schedule an appointment today!
