About.

Britt Jagodnik, LCSW

My job, and privilege, as a therapist is to get to know you as deeply as possible. In therapy, we are partners in discovering more about how your mind works - how it helps you and how it can sometimes hinder you, even when you don’t necessarily realize it in the moment.

As a clinician, I place a high value on curiosity, empathy, flexibility, and a sense of humor. While therapy can uncover and illuminate painful experiences, it’s also, at its best, a safe, lively, and creative environment in which to share intimate thoughts, feelings, and ideas. I continually strive to educate myself in the field of psychotherapy, realizing that one size does not fit all and that the opportunities for learning in this field are unending - one of the many reasons I’ve made it my life’s work and a labor of love.

When I’m not working, I can often be found hanging out with my two miniature schnauzers. I love social and cultural satire, music, and urban environments. I value the experiences and opinions of people of all ages and demographics; at its best, therapy is a place of growth for both patient and therapist.
