About Neil Brown

Neil Brown is a psychotherapist and organizational consultant with over 30 years experience based in Santa Cruz, California. He earned his undergraduate degree from Colorado State University and has a Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Denver. He has been a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in California since 1978.

After extensive study with pioneers in family therapy and organizational development, Neil has adapted models that maximize effectiveness for clients. Using these models, Neil works with both individuals and groups to help clients reach their potential. As a psychotherapist Neil is very active in the therapeutic process, providing much more than just an empathetic ear. This process begins with gathering information needed to understand the barriers which are blocking either personal or relationship goals. His analysis of this information produces strategies for change that are then implemented through supportive coaching.  As an organizational consultant, Neil provides much more than a prescribed approach. His ability to understand and relate to individuals and groups allows consultation that is tailored to the specific needs and dynamics of a team.

Barriers to change are experienced in a surprisingly similar way in the context of both family and work environments. The action plans Neil generates have been successful in helping individuals, families, and work groups reach their goals. Our hope is that this Web site will give you an introduction into the varied services which Neil provides. We welcome further inquiries!
