Brittany Quimby, MSEd, MS is a Doctoral Psychology Intern working under the supervision of Robin McLeod, PhD, LP and Greg Picker, PsyD, LP.
Brittany grew up in Minnesota and is excited about returning to the Twin Cities after completing educational requirements in Philadelphia for graduate school. Prior to doctoral training, she received her masters in counseling at the University of Pennsylvania. Currently, she is completing the final year of her doctoral degree in clinical psychology at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a result of receiving doctoral training within a medical school, Brittany has developed expertise in the intersection of emotional, behavioral, and physical concerns. She has experience working alongside a multidisciplinary team providing behavioral health consultation services in primary care offices. Specifically, she helped clients learn how to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes as it relates to weight management, irritable bowel syndrome, coping with chronic pain and chronic medical conditions, insomnia, caregiving, and grief. Brittany has been trained in applying such knowledge and skills to the outpatient therapy setting, as she believes in treating the whole person.
She has had extensive training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) through her coursework and clinical training sites. She was trained at the Aaron T. Beck’s Center for Cognitive Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania. Brittany developed a knowledge of evidence-based treatments for a variety of mental health concerns commonly seen in outpatient therapy practices, including anxiety, depression, panic, phobias, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, acute stress, adjustment, and ADHD. She has also received formal training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Brittany strives to create a warm and welcoming environment for her clients to feel heard and genuinely understood. This helps Brittany tailor her approach to meet her clients’ unique needs. She finds helping others reach their full potential and live in accordance with their values exceptionally rewarding.
In addition to therapy, Brittany has also pursued training experiences in conducting psychological testing, specifically in the areas of psychodiagnostics, personality, and psychoeducational assessments.
In her free time, Brittany enjoys cooking, boxing, snowboarding, and reading a good book with a warm cup of coffee!
