Stephen Brown LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 14 years of experience in mental health, including research, prevention, psycho-education and direct practice. I work with individuals, couples and families to identify areas of desired growth, process the formation of maladaptive patterns and enact strategies focused on lasting change. My practice is informed by my experience working with diverse populations in inpatient, community-based and outpatient settings. I utilize an array of treatment approaches depending upon presenting issues and client need, including trauma-based therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, mindfulness and motivational interviewing. I believe that therapy is a transaction that occurs through acceptance, trust and the establishment of a space that nurtures accountability without the presence of guilt or shame. I value the information that each client brings to session and honor their autonomy and self-determination to grow in the way they choose.
