Whitney Brown, LCSW
Hey there and welcome to BetterHelp! Reaching out for help can be one of the most difficult steps you make, and I want to applaud the courage it took you to make that step today!
My name is Whitney, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with years of experience in many different areas. I have worked closely with clients to help them process and overcome trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, attachment, self-esteem and more. I have gained experience in these areas through working with clients in multiple settings to include; community mental health agencies, crisis stabilization facility, college counseling department and work in the school system. I am now in private practice using all the experience gained to continue helping clients on their journey of growth and healing.
I received my undergraduate degree at Georgia Southern University and my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at Savannah State University. I had the opportunity to work with and learn from amazing and eclectic mentors and professors during my studies and internships. Throughout that time I learned a variety of skills and therapy interventions. Staying up to date on the latest research and techniques is an important part of my practice to ensure that I am providing the best evidence based methods possible.
I believe that you have all that you need within you to be successful, and live a life full of joy and satisfaction. There are times when our circumstances seem so challenging that no one could possibly understand or help. During those times, we are often in need more than ever of a safe and authentic human connection to overcome some of those difficult moments. Through my experience, I have learned that the relationship and connection that comes from therapy is like no other. It can help or hinder a persons healing and growth. It is my honor to help those who are willing to take that first step and allow me to become apart of their journey.
I bring the perspective to my therapy approach that you are the expert in you. You decide your goals and when you are ready to challenge yourself. I will be helping to shine a light on unseen potential, skills, and strengths in your life. No one can tackle your life challenges but you, however you don't have to do it alone. Working together we will use evidence based interventions to move you in the direction you want to go, to reach your desired goals and to live a life full of joy and satisfaction.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Whitney was my first intro into therapy, and she quickly established rapport, and ease to make my therapy experience enjoyable and not full of anxiety. She has provided helpful tools to combat my cycles of anxiety, and walks them through with me while I live it out. I've recommended many people to better help because of Whitney's exceptional work!

Whitney is very easy to relate to. When I had my first ever counselling session with her I was very nervous but within a few minutes all my nerves were gone. Whitney made me feel unexpectedly at ease talking about very difficult unspoken issues I had feared. After four sessions and a number of messages back and forth at difficult times I am beginning to have confidence to deal with some very difficult events. Still a long way to go but Whitney has been invaluable to me over the past month and I will be seeking help from her for a while yet. I cannot recommend Whitney enough.
