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!
