Hello! I'm Brittany Hicks

I've been told that my personable, humanistic, and rational approach is what helps people.

I am the owner and founder of Guiding Light Mental Health Services. I am a dog mom, mother to two kids, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend to many. I am also a human being who is deep-thinking and deep-feeling. I know what it's like to feel unsure of yourself and out of control of your thoughts and emotions. Anxiety can make you have self-doubt and get in the way of trusting yourself. 


I specialize in anxiety, stress, self-esteem, family issues, and trauma.  I enjoy helping my clients improve symptoms of anxiety/worry, build self-esteem, improve communication/boundaries, and heal from traumas. I work with older teens and adults (ages 14+ accepted).


The lighthouse is a beacon of light and symbolizes hope. Here at Guiding Light Mental Health Services, we strive to empower you, provide guidance, and be an advocate for your well-being. Let us help you overcome your challenges that come your way.


Guiding Light Mental Health Services is a safe, inclusive environment for everyone. We celebrate diversity and everyone being their authentic selves.

Currently, Guiding Light is a sole private practice.
