Professional statement

Meredith Brown is Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private psychotherapy practice in Manhattan. She specializes in issues relating to depression, anxiety, relationship and family conflict, eating disorders, women's health and life transitions.

Meredith is particularly passionate about serving adults, young adults, and college students in individual and group-based settings. In her practice, she implements a relational, mindfulness-based approach. She works predominantly from a psychodynamic/relational orientation, and incorporates aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and interpersonal therapy depending on the needs of the individual.

Meredith received her Masters in Social Work from New York University, and her BA from Union College. Additionally, she is currently enrolled in Psychoanalytic Training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, where she previously completed a Psychodynamic Psychotherapy training program. She also completed post- graduate training at the William Alanson White Institute, through the Eating Disorders, Compulsions and Addictions program. In addition to individual therapy, Meredith will soon be offering a Female Empowerment through Connection interpersonal therapy group as well as an Eating Disorder Support Group.

Message to clients

My approach to therapy emphasizes the value of the therapist-patient relationship as an essential component to creating a safe and supportive environment. Together we will be open, curious and thoughtful in understanding what isn't working for you and how to make it better. By exploring life experiences, personal triggers and relationship dynamics, I hope to help you gain a greater awareness and understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviors in order to have more meaningful and fulfilling relationships and life as a whole. I look forward to hearing from you!
