Jeffrey (Jeff) Brown, PhD

Treatment Approach & Areas of Expertise

I specialize in working with clients who are experiencing mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, and other emotional difficulties. I also help individuals navigate relationships and other life events such as school, family, or work-related stress. Additionally, I have worked with clients who are experiencing challenges related to various aspects of their identity, such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and/or gender identity. My background and approach to psychotherapy are eclectic, integrating various aspects of cognitive behavioral, solutions-focused and process oriented therapy, as well as other therapeutic modalities depending on the client’s needs. I take an ecological systems perspective, typically exploring each client’s own environment as we develop goals and strategies to achieve them. I view therapy as a collaborative process, where I work with clients very closely, adjusting the therapeutic process as necessary.
