I am well trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and have been using this approach for treating individuals with borderline personality disorder and high-risk behaviors for over thirteen years. I have found working with this approach and this population incredibly rewarding. I am a DBT consultant and trainer for a number of state agencies. I am also trained in Prolonged Exposure therapy for the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and am passionate about helping individuals regain fulfilling lives after experiencing significant trauma. Furthermore, I have training and experience with therapeutic assessment and use this approach to help individuals understand themselves, their strengths, and their challenges more completely.

Brittany Hayes is a Licensed Professional Counselor in training working towards full licensure at Pauquette Center’s Baraboo and Sauk offices. Her approach involves even the youngest of clients in learning, growing, and healing through a number of life difficulties. Her clinical background and experience focused on working with children and adolescents who had experienced traumatic events and this is where her passion lies: helping individuals of all ages navigate the aftermath of their life turned upside down. 

Brittany’s other passion is supporting parents. Families have had to deal with so much lately. Parenting without a pandemic is challenging enough and with continuous changes, many parents are questioning what to do about (just fill in the blank with anything!) 

Her therapy style for children and adults alike combines an attachment-based, collaborative approach, which is highly personalized to best explore and meet the needs of each individual client. She works to build a trusting relationship with her clients which tends to look a little different for everyone. Brittany will meet you where you are at with patience and compassion.
