Desiree Brown She/Her Psychotherapist MA, CCP

trauma PTSD personality disorders couple and marriage counselling therapist at Lisa Shouldice Psychotherapy clinic Ontario

For many years I worked in the public sector offering therapeutic support to individuals, couples and families, with mild to severe mental health and substance use challenges. I was honored to participate in the development of community mental health programs and find creative ways of increasing mental health access. Transitioning to the private sector was amazing. I’ve gotten the opportunity to offer my knowledge of the public health system while connecting with people using a variety of therapeutic modalities and at a pace that is unique to each person.

I work with youth and adults ages 16 and over individually, as a couple or family on challenges including but not limited to depression, anxiety, mood and personality disorders, interpersonal conflict, parenting and stress related to life transitions. I have a particular interest in trauma, grief and substance use addiction challenges. And I am a BIPOC woman and mother with a deeper understanding of the nuances and complexities of everyday events of others with a similar experience.

I am NIHB approved and an ally of many communities including aboriginal and LGBTQAI2S+.

Some of the therapeutic techniques I use with individuals include Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. When working with couples we collaborate using EFT to enhance attachment and connection. We may also use Gottman Method to manage conflict and increase problem solving, and strength-based approaches to utilize positive aspects of the relationship to have a more balanced perspective.

I am an approved provider for many insurance plans as a Registered Psychotherapist, and available for short-term and long-term therapy. If you are interested in working together, please connect with me.

I offer an initial free consultation. An hour of psychotherapy is $170. Couple/family sessions are $200. Some sliding fee scale is available.

Life can be unpredictable and can feel overwhelming at times. Along the way we sometimes rely on familiar and comfortable patterns of thought and behaviour that work in some ways yet ultimately don't bring us closer to who we want to be. I feel so honoured to be invited into your world and I take the responsibility to help make life more manageable, meaningful, and fulfilling. I value your individuality and integrate elements from different evidence-based therapeutic approaches into my work with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness based practices.

As a therapist I create a caring and supportive space where you are safe to unload and be vulnerable. In therapy we will work together to clarify your values, navigate areas of conflict or tension in your life, and cope with intense emotions. I have spent most of my career as a therapist working in community mental health and have a particular interest in supporting adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, impacts of trauma, life transitions, parenting, work stress and burnout, relationship conflict, low self-esteem, fertility, grief, and intimate partner violence. As a queer woman I am also particularly interested in supporting other members of the LGBTQI2S+ community.

Reaching out for help is a sign of strength and I strive to support you in increasing your self-compassion and self-awareness. I look forward to connecting with you.

I offer a free initial consultation, and a therapy session is $170.
