Hello! My name is Rhea Brown! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Chicago Native. It is my belief that therapy is the foreign object in a persons life that shakes things up in order to spark change. Therapy offers a unique opportunity for self reflection and growth. It provides a space for individuals to learn who they are and who they are not, create boundaries, and learn the tools essential to living a full and healthy life.
There are times in life where we may find ourselves grappling with feelings such as hopelessness, depression, worthlessness, disappointment, uncertainty, anxiety, grief and abandonment just to name a few. I specialize in working with women and teens to process through these types of emotions and find their voice and power. I assist my clients in navigating; life transitions, grief, forgiveness, parenting and co-parenting relationships, divorce, dating, self-esteem and self worth, emotional regulation and family dynamics.
As your therapist it is my job to provide a space that feels safe, warm and inviting so that we create the most optimal level of healing and growth. I do this by utilizing a client centered and strengths based perspective that meets you where you are and gently helps guide you where you want to be. Therapy with me is empathetic, caring, and provides the safety needed to explore your concerns and start to work through them so that you can be your greatest self.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and also utilize elements of Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I help you to reflect on your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, challenge negative thinking and help you to reframe your thoughts, emotions and behaviors to reflect more positivity, health and wellness.
I welcome the opportunity to work with you and help you to Heal, Rise and Soar!
