Susan Brown, LSCW

The core direction of my work is through connection and compassion, focusing on individualizing interventions and developing strategies for non-violent communication, achieving life balance and self-acceptance. My style is compassionate; my direction is fostering family closeness. Clients will collaborate in therapy to set goals and create their own treatment plan. For adolescents’ parents will be included in the treatment planning as part of their child’s counseling. Many of these tools are applied to bridge communication between family members.
I utilize a blend of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and others which can be combined to help the client apply personalized strategies toward their own mental wellness. The primary focus is to individualize interventions and develop strategies for effective coping, build self-esteem and acceptance.
I have worked with children, preteen, adolescents and adults. I have extensive experience working with teens at risk for suicide, survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. I also have a background in early childhood education, with 5 years’ experience teaching parenting classes. A new recent focus in my work is Trauma-Focused CBT.
