Addictions Counselor

Britt Benson, PLPC, NCC

Britt Benson, PLPC, NCC, received her Bachelor's of Arts degree in Comparative History of Ideas from the University of Washington in 2011. After subsequently obtaining a paralegal studies certificate in 2012 from the same institution, Britt gained life-changing insight into the criminal justice system and developed a passion for helping justice-involved individuals. 

Britt earned her M. Ed. in Clinical Counseling from the University of New Orleans and became a National Certified Counselor in 2019. She completed her clinical internship at the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Juvenile Diversion Program and gained post-grad experience as a counselor at the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Adult Diversion Program. Britt’s work within the criminal justice system has provided her with an acute appreciation for the many ways in which addiction touches her community and galvanized her commitment to helping it heal. 

Britt is dedicated to authentically and ethically serving individuals from diverse backgrounds who are struggling with mental health concerns, substance use disorders, and other chronic illnesses. Her existential theoretical approach to counseling provides clients with a non-judgmental space to explore their experiences of the human condition, and empowers clients to turn toward life through interpersonal and intrapersonal skill development, connection, and meaning-making. Britt uses an intersectional framework to understand and collaboratively address challenges and strengths unique to each client. 

Originally hailing from Seattle, Washington, Britt enjoys travel, hiking, photography, and philosophy. She recharges by spending quality time with family and her goofy rescue greyhound, Lulu, whose antics are a constant reminder of the restorative power of laughter.
