Areas of interest for Dr. Brown include depression, anxiety, women’s issues, LGBTQIA/Kink, parenting challenges, eating disorders (HAES/IE), autism spectrum disorders, divorce, adoption or attachment related concerns, emotional trauma, and grief/loss. Her multifaceted treatment approach includes client-centered, in combination with psychodynamic (interpersonal), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and family systems strategies.

In her professional practice, Dr. Brown believes that developing a solid foundation of trust, empathy, and understanding is the primary catalyst for beginning the process of change. Together, you will examine your history, thought patterns, and ways of relating to others. Through a balance of humor and solemnity, validation and challenge, those small changes will build larger, more lasting changes.
