Alexus Brown, LMSW

Licensed Master Social Worker

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker who specializes in working with children and adolescents. I believe in taking a client centered approach to help clients manage and overcome stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, and mood fluctuations through psychoeducation and other therapeutic modalities. I work hard to support my clients and come from a gentle, warm, and empathetic perspective. I constantly seek additional training and knowledge to better serve my clients’ needs.

 

In my early career, I worked in foster care with children who had suffered the intense trauma of abuse and neglect. This experience left a special place in my heart and has been a driving factor in my work. I believe everyone should have a fulfilling life and seek out the things that bring them joy.

 

In my free time I enjoy traveling, spending time with my partner and our pets, and being outside in nature. I love trying new foods and experiences and feel like there is always something new to learn. For me, self-care includes pampering myself, sitting outside near a body of water, and eating good food! 

 

I look forward to working with you!
