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.

Kelly Brown is very understanding and supportive. There is no question that she is listening to your concerns and genuinely cares. She is able to make this platform feel just as personal as a one-on-one visit. She is able to calm me down when I'm stressed or having a particular rough time, just by asking questions. She is truly helpful.

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!
