Brittany Weidman

BHIS Supervisor and Provider

In BHIS sessions, as well as through the supervision I provide to others, I encourage a space for clients to feel comfortable expressing themselves in healthy and creative ways! As a provider, I place a strong emphasis on skills training to establish positive relationships, strong communication and coping skills and mindfulness strategies to assist clients in progressing both independently, and as a part of their family or peer systems. To achieve this, I use a variety of interventions to meet my clients where they feel most comfortable, to make the most progress - whether it be through learning and implementing exercises in: artistic expression, building/hands on projects, journaling, outdoor activities/connection to their environment, competitive games, storytelling and story-creation, deep breathing techniques and progressive muscle relaxation, etc. I do all of these things in the school and home environments to bring together all areas of the client's life, to ensure I provide consistent and total care!
