Professional statement

Britney Henley-Philemond is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Her specialities include helping young adults and older adults with their depression, stress, anger, and anxiety. Often, Britney’s clients feel like they can’t control their emotions, including heavy emotions like stress, anger, sadness, or grief. They struggle to feel like they have self-worth, and find it difficult to communicate with others because they feel worried about appearing weak. This can lead to relationship conflicts or emotional exhaustion.

Britney’s approach to working with clients draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing. Clients learn more about how their thoughts impact their emotions, and how harmful behaviors like substance use can have origins in difficult past experiences or chronic negative self-talk. Britney also practices Solution-focused Therapy and mindfulness therapy, so clients set goals for themselves and work towards those goals with increased self-awareness. They learn several techniques for regulating their emotions, which can help them when they start to feel overwhelmed.

Britney earned a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy from Barry University. She has ten years of experience working in the mental health field and has previously worked in the behavioral health space.

Mrs. Henley-Philemond is currently providing virtual telehealth counseling sessions on Wednesdays at 9:00am, 11:00am, and 5:00pm. She is providing sessions on Fridays at 9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am, and 1:00pm.
