Kelly Brown

(LCSW, LADC)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker, licensed drug and alcohol counselor, and small business owner. I have been working in the behavioral health field since 2009, and I specialize in the treatment of substance use and addictive disorders, depression and anxiety, as well as eating disorders with a particular aptitude for working with individuals who suffer from binge eating disorder. I consider myself an eclectic treatment provider, well versed in cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavioral (DBT), Inner Child, Seeking Safety, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative therapies. I am passionate about connecting with clients based on their unique needs as I do not believe in a one size fits all method but instead like to determine what approach will fit best based on a person's strengths and individualized goals. In most recent years, I have acquired the additional titles of wife, mother, and elder millennial and found that my personal experience with major life transitions has helped inform my work and allowed for a bit of humble humor to make its way into my approach. Overall, I am very much a people person, I get energy from being around others and therefore helping those in need has become my life's work and I couldn't imagine it any other way.

Written by L.I. on Jun 07, 2020 after counseling with Kelly for 1 month on issues concerning eating disorders

Kelly is compassionate, supportive and full of incite. She responds quickly.

Kelly has been a life saver for me. I was skeptical about being able to connect with someone online, but Kelly IMMEDIATELY jumped right into the issues I was having and met me with empathy, compassion, and practical tools to help. She is an excellent listener, gives really helpful perspective, and almost always has some very practical advice or an "assignment" I can do to process my anxiety (like a worksheet), which is something I really need. I can't recommend Kelly highly enough!

I've only had a couple of sessions with Kelly but she's already helped me so much. Even with the time difference, she always responds to my messages and I feel like she completely understands my needs.

I love Kelly! She gives me all the encouragement and support I need to get through life’s tough situations. She’s knowledgeable and gives me a variety of tools to move forward in situations. She’s also an excellent listener when I just want to vent or gab.

Written by M.A. on Oct 28, 2019 after counseling with Kelly for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Kelly is an awesome listener and really invested in ones personal needs and wellbeing. It‘s super nice to work with her: she listens, immediately gives great advise and also knows when it‘s the right moment to challenge you. She is interested in the bigger picture of you and not just one specific problem which I find very beneficial. She has a broad understanding of all sorts of human struggles and always comes up with possible solutions. Thank you Kelly for this great and kind help!

I had previously lost all confidence in therapists until I met Kelly Brown. She’s kind, caring, is an amazing listener, and has a good sense of humor. Kelly, thank you so much for helping me through some dark times in my life! You are a fantastic therapist and you’ve given me a space where I feel comfortable expressing my thoughts and feelings, and I’ve never really had that before. I’ve always had difficulty with expressing these, and having someone like you has given me worlds of help! Thank you thank you thank you! Five stars!!

Kelly has been very understanding and provided me with perspective that I was unable to see for myself. I massively appreciate her input and her work changed my opinion on therapy itself. I’d highly recommend Kelly.
