Loretta Brown


About Me

Being as teenage isn’t easy! Seeking out therapy comes with resistance and mistrust. It can be a scary decision. Seeking out help for life challenges can be a guide and safe place to help build you and stabilize you. Keep moving forward, you are on the right track.
Welcome to Better Help, my name is Loretta Brown. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a wealth of experience in mental health treatment. I obtained my MSW in 1992 from Hunter College School of Social Work. Upon completing graduate School, I began my career working in mental health providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents, family and adults. My most extensive work has been with adolescents between the ages of 13-19.
My 25 years of experience goes over and beyond the work I’ve done in mental health clinics, psychiatric hospitals, child welfare agencies, home health and hospice care. Today I have my own private practice providing behavioral health services, working with youth, adults and families. I specialize in providing evidence-based treatments such as cognitive behavioral treatment, solution focus therapy, emotion-focus therapy and mindfulness therapies. I have a relaxed and liberal approach, allowing you to be expressive in your needs, aiding you to bring clarity to your current life situation.
My goal is to help you re-imagine your life, by letting go of thoughts and behaviors that undermine you. I strive to allow a renewed and fulfilled you to emerge. My extensive skills and experience in therapeutic approaches have brought forth a vast amount of client success. I look forward to working with you and observing the change that will bring hope and resilience.
