Elaine S. Brown, LPC
"As long as you are breathing there is more right with you than wrong" Jon Kabbat Zinn
Elaine uses a combination of theories, but primarily uses cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques to assist clients in finding a more fulfillling life. As a therapist, she hopes to help clients find new pathways to happiness and fufillment. Elaine has a warm and caring demeanor and uses a direct approach and gentle humor in her work with clients. Many individuals are struggling with the issues life throws at them. Sometimes, an individual may have turned to substances such as alcohol or other drugs to help cope with those issues. I will meet you where you are and work with you to find new methods of dealing with life issues. I don't believe people are wrong or broken, I believe we sometimes have difficulties with our perceptions of ourselves and our lives. Changing those perceptions may lead to an awakening of possibilities.
The process of change in our lives is not an easy journey. Change takes courage and commitment; the courage to face our fears and the commitment to take the necessary steps to walk through those fears in order to change our path. If you are ready to take the journey toward a more positive life, call or email me today and let's walk that path together.
I believe it is an honor to be invited into my client's lives as a trusted confidante. As a therapist, I want to help my clients build more satisfying relationships with self and others. I believe that relationships are an important aspect of many people's lives. If you are struggling with substance abuse, depression, anxiety or relationship issues, I would be honored to assist you with finding new meaning and fulfillment in your life. The possibilities are endless.
My background as a family law attorney also gives me a unique perspective on those navigating the legal process of divorce or modifications. I provide Guardian ad Litem, Parent Facilitation, and Attorney or Amicus ad Litem services to those in need. If I serve in one of those capacities, I cannot also serve as a therapist so it is important for potential clients to know that I cannot change or have dual roles.
