Dr. Brown is the therapist I needed during a period of hopelessness and burnout. She is insightful, action and solution oriented and has a great sense of humor. I always feel listened and understood during our sessions.

I’ve had a couple of therapist and sometimes I struggled with connecting and fostering a relationship where there is no judgement and full ability to have conversations, but with Dr. Brown, it has been so much better. She is kind and gentle but also stops and offers advice and Insights and creates a space where you feel supported and understood. She also provides a lot of links and work that you can continue to work on after the session. I have absolutely loved and looked forward to our sessions every week! I highly recommend!
