Email about Brittany Aceto

Brittany Aceto is a licensed clinical social worker who earned her master’s degree in Social Work at Loyola University Chicago. Brittany always felt the pull to work in the field, but positive experiences in her therapeutic journey ultimately helped her decide to pursue a career as a professional therapist.

Before joining Willis CC, Brittany worked in a community-based role helping individuals recovering from mental illness and substance use. Additionally, she spent many years working with the elderly community in long-term and hospice care. At Willis CC, she looks forward to working with everyone from young adults to the elderly. She believes there is something very sacred about being present for someone who is looking to make a change in their mental health.

Those who know Brittany well describe her as goal-oriented, inclusive, and warm. As a therapist, she understands how important it is to not only listen but to be fully present for those she serves. With this in mind, so she focuses on listening first—actively and fully—before giving feedback. She’s a problem-solver by nature and works to demonstrate ways for guests to meet the goals they are focused on.

A native of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Brittany has two rescue dogs, loves a good true crime documentary, and is married to her high school sweetheart. In her free time, she enjoys stand-up comedy, traveling, and trying out new restaurants in her area.
