Heather Brown, LMFT
Licensed Clinical Consultant
I am a licensed therapist who believes in an empowering, and empathic therapeutic relationship in which growth can occur. I strive to honor the difficult work that my clients experience while also providing honest, straightforward insight.
My belief is that you don’t exist in the world without being impacted by your most intimate relationships. Your relationships with your partner/ significant other, family, friends, co-workers and neighbors influence your individual experience. My hope is to help you navigate those relationships while also helping you to identify your role in creating your own experience.
I utilize an integrative approach drawing from structural, emotionally focused and family systems theory, while also providing sex-positive, culturally aware and trauma informed therapy. I take into account each person’s age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, spirituality and religion. My approach focuses on how your life experiences have shaped you, influencing your perspective, emotions and relationships. Providing insight and supporting awareness in these areas can guide you toward emotional healing and growth.
I am experienced in providing individual, couple/marital and family therapy.
I have several years of experience working with families in crisis, with children, preteens, and teens. I have worked closely with grandparents, parents, foster parents and adoptive parents to create harmony in the family home while also supporting the whole family to work toward a common goal. Within these families I have supported individuals of all ages to work through the symptoms of depression, anxiety and other symptoms of mental health that have isolated them or created disconnection.
My specialties include but are not limited to: parent-child conflict, children, adolescents, parental distress, co-parenting, family therapy, couples therapy, working with issues related to anxiety, depression, sexual orientation, gender, and race/ethnicity.
