I am Brittany Quagan, owner of Journeys: Holistic Wellness & Anxiety Relief Center. I am a clinical therapist, intuitive healer and award winning author. I am also a Clinical Therapist and Researcher at Yale School of Medicine.
Healing has been and always will be a passion of mine. I believe we never stop growing or evolving, and the journey is continuous no matter how much progress we have made.
As a child and teenager, I struggled with anxiety & panic disorder, depression, substance abuse, low self-esteem, and later on in my life, abusive relationships. I am here to tell you it can and does get better (I am now free of all the above mentioned things, without the assistance of medications). All it takes is to start--and by showing up on this page you have begun. I am here to help guide you the rest of the way, for however long you need.
While my primary client base are those who suffer from anxiety/depression and those who are empaths, my work is to help anyone who needs it to overcome whatever obstacles are in their life with empowerment and resiliency. My journey began in working with these individuals on a holistic and spiritual level, which then evolved into me obtaining my Master degree and License in Clinical Counseling.
I offer clinical counseling, life coaching, mind/body wellness, Reiki healing, and intuitive or spiritual guidance. I also teach a variety of development & healing classes, as well as Reiki certification and our new Intuitive Healer certification. My services are offered internationally.
In addition to the holistic and spiritual modalities, I am also a formally trained practicing clinical counselor. These paths have merged, providing me the opportunity to work both in research and as a therapist at Yale. Through our research, we are exploring practices and habits of people who hear voices and have a diagnosis (such as those with a form of psychosis spectrum disorders) versus people who hear voices and do not have a diagnosis (such as psychic/mediums). One of my career goals is to integrate both worlds to develop more effective treatment in mental illness.
I started this journey to help you on yours, as so many have helped me on mine. I'm humbled to say I won as one of Natural Nutmeg's TOP10 BEST Life Coaches in CT in 2018!

Expectations When Booking
I value your time as much as I value my own. When booking a session with any business owner, you aren't just booking your hour spot with them. They plan their schedule around your time spot, they prepare for your time spot, and when you book that time spot that means that someone else who may need a session has to wait.
With that being said, I understand that unexpected events come up--I am human after all! But if you know that you cannot make a session, please let me know as soon as possible. I have a waiting list and if possible, I like to accommodate as many of my clients as I can. Additionally, it allows me to move my schedule around as needed.
However while I do understand life happens, those who continue to cancel last minute will not be able to book future sessions with me.
Thank you for understanding and thank you for valuing my time, my energy and the energy of those who also need sessions.
Books by Brittany
Seventeen-year-old Ren Nagel knows that the strange things she's seen are real--even if no one else believes her. But, when she's locked up in a psychiatric hospital; she loses hope that anyone will ever truly be on her side.
Then everything changes. With the help of a new friend, Ren breaks out. It's when she's on the run that she learns who she really is.
Hunted by evil, Ren must learn to control a power she never knew she had, organize a coalition of people she never knew existed, and remind humanity why fighting the darkness is a big part of being human.
Sometimes, feeling different is much more than just a feeling. For Ren, it means the fate of the world
From foster kid to awkward teen, Ren Nagel has always wanted to be "normal." But, that's probably never going to happen. Ren is just a little more than human--she's an Implement sent to Earth to save the world. She knows what she's supposed to be doing, but for now, Ren is ignoring all the signs.
Bound by promises she made a very long time ago, and with the help of her friends--some human, some not--Ren reluctantly sets out on an adventure that, if it doesn't kill her, will change her life--and everyone else's. There are other Implements out there whose help she needs to keep humanity from destroying itself, but first she's got to find them. And then, she's got a few debts to pay with her old friend Karma ...
