Brittany and Emily met while working in a community mental health agency in 2016. They quickly connected over their shared values, faith, and counseling philosophies.
After years of seeing the need for increased public awareness of mental health and trauma-informed practices, they launched BE Consulting Group in 2020.
BE combines Brittany and Emily’s experience, expertise, and passion for equipping leaders with the tools they need to prevent and address trauma.

Emily Andersen is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor, and nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
After earning a B.A. in Sociology from Furman University, Emily moved to Atlanta to work with youth experiencing homelessness. Hearing their experiences and helping them overcome hurdles inspired Emily to pursue a Master’s degree in counseling. She went on to the University of Georgia, where she worked with youth in the juvenile justice system and earned an M.Ed. in Professional Counseling.
Since then, Emily’s counseling has focused on treating children, teens, and families who have experienced trauma. When she’s not training or consulting, Emily loves spending time with her family, binge-watching a good Netflix show, or exploring new places.
