Dr. Hannah Brown is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with diverse clinical assessment and therapy interests. Dr. Brown enjoys working with individuals of all ages and presenting concerns; however, she particularly enjoys working with adolescents with severe behavior difficulties. During her internship and postdoctoral fellowship years, Dr. Brown worked in residential treatment facilities conducting court-ordered diagnostic testing and providing counseling services for adolescents with histories of extensive trauma, legal involvement, and disruptive behaviors. Resulting from this work, Dr. Brown developed a passion for working with survivors of sexual and physical abuse, and other childhood traumas.
Dr. Brown’s approach to therapy comes from the mindset that one size does NOT fit all. She works with each individual and their unique circumstances to meet their needs focusing first on the therapeutic relationship. She also utilizes various skills and techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and other approaches to help clients reach their full potential.
Dr. Brown grew up in Southwest Michigan before moving to Indianapolis to complete graduate school. While she enjoyed living in the city, she missed Michigan and all the lakes and beaches. She was excited for the opportunity to return to Michigan to work with BRAINS and be closer to her family. Dr. Brown enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and getting out to Lake Michigan as much as possible. She has a 5-year-old Australian Shephard named Foster, who also loves to go swimming at the lake.
