Caroline Grace Brown, LMSW, DBT, REBT
Caroline has experience working with a wide range of individuals and is passionate about empowering and supporting her clients in their journey to becoming their most authentic, confident selves. She specializes in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, and self-esteem issues.
Caroline completed her undergraduate degree at The College of New Jersey, where she graduated cum laude. She completed her Masters’s in Social Work at New York University Silver School of Social Work, graduating at the top of the class with a near-perfect GPA and a concentration in mental health service delivery.
Caroline firmly believes in the uniqueness of every client she works with and values the insight and strengths each brings into the therapeutic relationship. As such, she works collaboratively with her clients to identify unhealthy patterns that impede a client’s ability to achieve their goals or detract from their overall well-being, heal from past experiences, and integrate new, healthier ways of being that will better serve the client.
Caroline takes an integrative humanistic and strengths-based approach in her work with clients. Her psychotherapy style tailors to each client’s personal journey and goals. It draws from a variety of modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), rational emotional therapy (REBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic therapy.
