Welcome to the website of Caree Brown.

Caree Brown LCSW (Carole-Lee Brown, LCS 10338) is a licensed individual and marital psychotherapist practicing in Walnut Creek (Downtown) and Oakland (Rockridge). She has a whopping 40 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE with outstanding credentials and education.

Because of Caree's outstanding success in helping several thousand people find meaningful solutions to their challenges, she has been awarded the prestigious "BEST OF THE BAY PSYCHOTHERAPIST 2010" and again was voted BEST THERAPIST IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA in 2011.

Caree works with individuals, couple, families and groups and also offers workshops on a variety of topics. Many of her clients come for one issue, and after resolution, often stay to work on another, often transcending life-long patterns of thinking and behaving that have held them back.

While Caree has a specialized focus in working with couples and families, many of her clients claim that it is her depth of wisdom, her exceptional warmth and caring, and her capacity to inspire FAST AND CREATIVE BREAKTHROUGH SOLUTIONS that make her therapeutic style unique and distinctive from other approaches.

Whether it involves an individual, a couple, or a family, most people are more able to create the change they seek when they LEARN HOW to make the change. As Einstein said, "Most problems cannot be solved at the same level of thinking as when they were created."

Caree employs an eclectic, collaborative approach which may include solution-focused, cognitive, mindfulness, behavioral, psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, systems, EMDR, and Imago Therapy. Her choice of intervention is always geared to the uniqueness of each client's situation. Her style is warm, creative and down to earth.
