I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 17 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, teens, and children and I have expertise in Child Welfare cases. I received my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Trinity College of Graduate Studies in Anaheim, CA and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Biola University in La Mirada, CA. I have worked in the field of child welfare for 18 years.
I am a remarried mother of two sons and one stepson. I am familiar with the difficulties of the teen years, both from my personal life and my work in child welfare.
Sometimes for teens, they simply need an objective, outsider to talk to about the woes of their lives. I have experience engaging with teens and keeping an open mind to their experiences and desires, while still keeping in mind what types of activities are age appropriate. I allow them the space to express themselves, while still giving them activities to cause them to think about their actions, attitudes, and behaviors. By doing this, it allows them to make the decision to do, be, and act differently, in their own way, in their own time, in a safe space.

Brittanie is a fantastic counselor. She is attentive, responsive, skilled at listening for the core of an issue and capable of guiding people who are diametrically opposed to hearing each other. She breaks down the challenges you are facing to manageable problems and helps to sequence, provide strategies and problem solve with you. She is also caring and humorous. We appreciate her flexibility, her insight and her expertise. We highly recommend her as a counselor.
Brittanie is a great counselor. My husband and I have come a long way with her. I really appreciate her ideas and expertise.
Our experience with Brittanie was fantastic. She regularly kept in contact with me while still protecting my daughter's privacy. I had never dealt with a counselor in any capacity and this format was a great experience. Brittanie offered evening and weekend appointments which was perfect for my high school student. Would definitely recommend. Thank you!
I've had therapy on and off for the past 25 years, but for the very first time I actually feel heard! And it's making a difference in an essential way...
Brittanie sees the core of me and lifts me up gently from where I'm at...I prefer text as my mode of communication because it slows my process down, and i feel it's a more honest form of communication because we don't have to waste our energy on social cues and body language and interpreting all that..
i am truly grateful for Bittanie!
Brittanie has been such a great therapist and connection for me and really helped me to gain clarity for so many areas in my life. Her ability to listen, bring insight, ask the right questions, and help me follow through on my commitments has been a tremendous help for me in a way I very much needed. My experience has been very pleasant with Brittanie through teen counseling I would highly recommend her!
Perfect. Exactly what I needed. I can write to my therapist any time I’m having trouble. I don’t have to save it and wait till my appointment. She responds when she can. Perfect. Love it.
Brittanie has been great so far. We've only been doing counseling sessions together for a few weeks but I enjoy her insights and she responds in a timely manner. Wisdom is a strength of hers and she has a way of seeing deeper into situations.
I was a little hesitant about trying online counseling, but once I was connected with someone, I immediately KNEW I made the right decision. Brittanie Mills has been extremely helpful with a very troubling situation I was dealing with. She was compassionate, and understanding, and it was so much easier to communicate with her. She was very attentive, and responded within hours, if not minutes, to my messages. I am so grateful that I participated with this online counseling! I was desperately seeking help, and I found the help I needed, thanks to Brittanie Mills.
The therapist is very mature and experienced and I really like her approach to counseling in this app. It’s an excellent service which is helping me a lot. Thank you teen counseling.
She listens clearly to both sides and gives good advice to all parties. She is very well suited for this type of work.
