Professional statement

Carline Brown is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Riverview, FL. Carline has over 15 years of experience as a therapist and focuses her practice on helping teenagers, young adults, adults, and couples improve their mental health. Many of Carline’s clients face issues with anxiety and depression. Sometimes, these challenges are a result of past trauma experiences or relationship conflicts.

Carline utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) when supporting clients, teaching them about the strong connection between thoughts, feelings, and actions. Clients practice challenging negative self-talk and avoiding cognitive distortions, which can help them reduce their anxiety or depression symptoms. She also practices Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness, helping clients increase their self-awareness and dedication to living through their values. With couples, Carline facilitates empathetic, feelings-based conversations to overcome conflict and to grow a stronger relationship.

Carline earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Lehman College NY. Her professional experiences in the field of social work give her a deep understanding of how complex mental health issues are, and how challenging they can be to resolve. She brings compassion and affirmation to each session, providing the support that clients need to feel empowered and resilient.
