About me

You've made a courageous step! Seeking out therapy is an admission that your ready to make changes in your life. It can be a scary decision. Seeking out help for life challenges can be a guide and safe place to help build you and stabilize you. Keep moving forward, you are on the right track.
Welcome to Better Help, my name is Loretta Brown. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a wealth of experience in mental health treatment. I obtained my MSW in 1992 from Hunter College School of Social Work. Upon completing graduate School, I began my career working in mental health providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents, family and adults.
My 25 years of experience goes over and beyond the work I’ve done in mental health clinics, psychiatric hospitals, child welfare agencies, home health and hospice care. Today I have my own private practice providing behavioral health services, working with youth, adults and families. I specialize in providing evidence-based treatments such as cognitive behavioral treatment, solution focus therapy, emotion-focus therapy and mindfulness therapies. I have a relaxed and liberal approach, allowing you to be expressive in your needs, aiding you to bring clarity to your current life situation.
My goal is to help you re-imagine your life, by letting go of thoughts and behaviors that undermine you. I strive to allow a renewed and fulfilled you to emerge. My extensive skills and experience in therapeutic approaches have brought forth a vast amount of client success. I look forward to working with you and observing the change that will bring hope and resilience.

Loretta has been so wonderful. I was so nervous about taking on the task to find a therapist, and I feel like I got so lucky to be matched with her. I feel like I’m just talking to a family member, she makes me feel so comfortable and at ease - no judgment!

Loretta is a competent, attentive, and very helpful therapist. Whenever we have a session (which I should make a point to schedule more often), but whenever we do talk, she’s extremely helpful.
