Britney Duner (she/her), LCSW, is a licensed clinical social worker with a professional educator license in School Social Work, specializing in child and adolescent mental health. She received her bachelor’s degree in child psychology from the University of Minnesota, and a master’s degree in social service administration from the University of Chicago. She has a passion for working with school age children, teens, and emerging adults.
Britney's specialties include generalized anxiety, adolescent life stressors and trauma. Her decade of experience working within the special education system also fostered her passion for IEP/504 Plan consultations, behavior intervention plans and accommodation advocacy.
In sessions, clients can expect to work with Britney to identify realistic and easy to implement strategies for coping with uncomfortable feelings and experiences. Utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, clients may receive homework or be asked to practice specific skills to reinforce the concepts taught each session. Caregivers can also expect to learn the skills their child is being taught, have the opportunity to discuss their concerns and goals for their child, and be provided with “take-away” strategies that can immediately be tried at home.
Britney is a recent transplant from the Chicagoland area. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her spouse and two children, walking her dog, exercising and reading.
