Angela René Brown, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Yorkville
In the journey of life, storms occur in our path that may throw us off course. Some of these challenges and transitions can be difficult to navigate. Past storms can also keep us from moving forward in life. I believe in the capacity of every person to live a joy-filled, empowered life. I enjoy walking alongside my clients, for a time, to assist them in reclaiming their life. At times our children also need extra guidance to navigate through life's storms. Together, we can work with your child and help them develop coping and/or social skills; developing a stronger sense of self.
I have 20+ years experience as a counselor and clinical social worker. My specialties include working with issues of anxiety, depression, Asperger's, autism, developmental and cognitive disabilities, bipolar disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, ADHD, behavioral and relational challenges, dealing with a loved one's addiction, disability and/or chronic illness and Gottman method couples therapy.
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
