Updated November 1, 2021

We are a collaborative group of mental health professionals. The Emerald Therapy Collective was started by Dr. Brittney France with the hopes of providing a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive environment for clients and clinicians. The clinicians in our practice each have specific specialties to fit the needs of our clients including, eating disorders, trauma, family and couples counseling, as well as grief and bereavement. Starting treatment can always be difficult, due to our varying specialities and collaborative approach we are able to provide a trusted team and familiar environment as client's needs arise or change.

The founder Dr. Brittney France has specialized in eating disorders working at all levels of care and research for over 14 years. Two additional therapists joined the team, bringing both their expertise and experience to offer to clients as well as ensuring that all of the clinicians continue to learn and grow through case consultation. Monica Dixon first joined the team offering an additional eating disorder provider, who also works with clients seeking treatment for grief and trauma work including being an EMDR certified therapist. Our team continued to grow with the onboarding of Dominique Haskell bringing expertise in family and couples relational work, mood disorders, personality disorders, and extensive knowledge in trauma work. We are a group of clinicians who have come together to provide well-rounded supportive care to fit our client's needs. Clients may come to work solely with one provider seeking their unique specialty or we are also able to provide individual and relational counseling if this helps the client reach their goals.
