Meet Brittany Stark
Lead Therapist at Lee Carlson Center
What does a typical day look like for you?
I feel like every hour is so different for me! One hour I’m helping a client navigate through unresolved trauma and the next hour I’m collaborating with fellow therapists about the best course of treatment for a client. My days are never dull or lack excitement which is just a few reasons why I love what I do!
What do you like best about working in the program?
What I love most about what I do is the variety. I never feel like I’m stuck. I also feel like I have the autonomy to be the therapist and lead that I want to be.
How have you seen LCC make a difference in the lives of the clients?
I have seen LCC make a difference in the lives of so many clients just by simply being present. Clients know that we are here to be their allies and support system. I have heard countless clients say that they enjoy coming to see their therapist and often are sad when the sessions are over. This is a place where they are noticed, recognized for the accomplishments and seen as people, not problems.
What attracted you to this work? What difference has it made in your life?
I have always had an attraction to working with people who struggle with trauma. So often we hear the word “trauma” and only think of natural disasters or combat vets. Those events only scratch the surface of what trauma is. We have all experienced something traumatic in our lives and it deserves to be heard. No matter how “small” it may seem. I feel so incredibly blessed to have honor of hearing these stories and watching clients climb their way to a more successful and fulfilling life.
