L. Kathleen Brown


About Me

I would like to start with congratulating and acknowledging you for taking this first step in achieving a more rewarding and fulfilling life. First steps can be hard to take, especially when it comes to our emotional health. We tend to be embarrassed, uncomfortable, or avoid these concerns. I am a true advocate in self-care as it is crucial for maintaining both our physical and emotional health. I believe you will be glad that you have taken this time to invest in yourself.

My name is Kathleen Brown and I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Missouri and Arizona. I am a proud graduate of the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. I have over 20 years of clinical experience in the mental health field. My experiences have included working in private practice, inpatient hospitalization, residential treatment, and telephone crisis care. Within these settings, I have provided individual, group, and family therapy. My specializations have included areas of Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Abuse/Trauma, and Grief. I have also provided supervision to aspiring mental health professionals who are seeking graduation from both undergraduate and graduate programs along with those meeting requirements for state licensure.

I am an advocate of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy coupled with Strengths Based and Solution Based modalities. Although I have had success with these modalities, I am educated in other modalities and will tailor treatment to be individualized. It would be my honor to help you establish and achieve both realistic and obtainable personal goals. I look forward to working together!
