Professional statement

Mona Browne is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who offers remote sessions to individuals in New York and Florida. She specializes in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions including graduating from college, beginning a new career, or the passage into motherhood, and helping clients navigate emotional distress.

Mona often sees female clients in their 20s and 30s, who are facing interpersonal relationship issues like conflict, breakups, and divorce. Clients who see Mona are often facing overwhelming anxiety, and feeling pressured about not “having it all” or their life map cemented. Mona helps them to pause, reflect, and put their stressors into perspective in order to enjoy their present reality, and look forward to the future.

Mona’s approach is a blend of psychotherapy and mindfulness practices; she enjoys helping clients get to the root of their presenting concerns, and tend to it in a way that is both curious and free of judgment.

Clients who see Mona will be able to connect with her remotely, at a flexible appointment time that fits into their busy schedule. She looks forward to meeting you.
