Clinical Intern

Elise Brown

There is a concept in therapy known as “walking the middle path,” which describes empowering people within their identities and where they are in the present moment, while also honoring and celebrating positive changes and goals that they wish to achieve. This is a mantra that drives my practice. I hope to foster one’s unique sense of self, their values, cultures, and beliefs, while also moving towards a happier, more fulfilled life.
Our lives are full of nuanced experiences, hardships, and relationships that shape us and challenge us. I believe that therapy creates a space where we can address these topics without judgment, gaining insight as to why they might be holding us back. Therapy can also be a way to remember we are not alone — the human experience is complex and weighted, but connection alone can help us begin a path towards an enlightened life.
My name is Elise, and I am receiving my M.A. and M.Ed. in Psychological Counseling, Mental Health Counseling at Teachers College, Columbia University. I hope to use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, meditation practices, and more to address your concerns and tailor a plan specific to you, your identities, and your goals. Most importantly, my goal as a therapist is to create a compassionate and attentive environment through emphasizing your strengths, achievements, and centering treatment around you.
I feel honored to be on this journey with you where we can learn and grow together. I am always open to feedback and prioritize self-reflection as a way to constantly improve my ability as a therapist. I trust that by working together towards a common goal, we can increase self-awareness, self-love, and overall well-being.
