My name is Britt Rasky and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Growing up, I constantly read fiction, engulfed myself in tv/movies, and was intrigued by the social problems of my friends & classmates. To this day, I’m always in the middle of a fantasy book series or binge watching a dramatic tv show. People and their stories fascinate me, and social work is a beautiful manifestation of that. Every person that I help is a living character to me, with complex histories and dreams, and I get sucked in!

I started my career as a school social worker, helping students in Special Education find success within the traditional school environment. I taught social skills, emotion regulation skills, executive functioning strategies, and more, while also dealing with daily school crisises and Special Education paperwork. I would empower the student while also helping their parents/teachers accommodate so the student could learn THEIR WAY, not just in a neurotypical way.

When the pandemic happened, I knew I wouldn’t be able to fully help my students without observing their social interactions. So I “temporarily” left the school setting and began contracting with Betterhelp. Betterhelp caught me by surprise, as I learned how much I enjoyed being able to help teens & adults in a thorough way, compared to the brief counseling I practiced in a school setting.  Furthermore, I realized that my adult clients benefited from my skill building just as much as my ADHD, ASD, and other students did. This has led me to where I am today, where I use my knowledge and understanding of skill building to help teens and adults (especially women) find their own versions of success. We live in a neurotypical world, and those of us with neurodivergent brains require individualized accommodations and strategies to help us accomplish our goals.
