As a therapist, Dr. Brown incorporates techniques from modalities including but not limited to schema therapy, cognitive-behavioral, imago, humanistic and feminist therapies. She is sex-positive, a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, trans-affirming, sex-worker affirming, kink positive, and strives to create a genuine and accepting atmosphere. Dr. Rebecca Brown approaches therapy with an integrative perspective incorporating both evidence based treatments and newer, third-wave theories to provide the best outcome across all demographics. They have had experience providing counseling to individuals and relationships across the lifespan and are comfortable working with a wide array of presentations such as trauma, gender, sexuality, relationship difficulties, social adversity, depression, and anxiety. 

Dr. Brown believes that the therapeutic relationship begins with a genuine, honest, non-judgmental, and collaborative space, inviting her clients to be as real and candid as possible. She values open communication, humor, perspective shifting, and a lot of analogies to provide her clients with as many tools and facts as possible to ensure trust in her work and in the therapeutic process. Dr. Brown’s approach is based on immediate symptom reduction followed by confronting the “real problem,” and delving deeper into the emotional and cognitive processes that otherwise hinder a full mind-body connection. They question the function of maladaptive behaviors, using a variety of tools to tap into deep, internal beliefs about the self, others, and the world. She often assigns at-home tasks to keep progress moving forward even outside of the therapeutic session. Dr. Brown recognizes therapy as a collaborative venture, as you are the expert of your own life and experiences. In doing so, she fluidly adapts to the client’s needs and goals, encouraging her clients to communicate when they believe an approach is not working so that a new approach can be developed.

 

In their personal life, Dr. Brown enjoys weight lifting, yoga, painting, reading, wine tasting, playing with her cat and dog, and spending time with loved ones. They are passionate about travel, trying new experiences, and different cuisines as they enjoy embracing a variety of human experiences.
