More About Paul Brown

Clinical Interests:

I have enjoyed a varied career working as an outpatient mental health counselor in a rural community mental health center in Illinois. I view myself as a generalist and a great deal of experience working as an outpatient counselor with a variety of clients. I fond of working with those who are affected by severe and persistent mental illness and worked in middle management many years as a supervisor of Community Support and Comprehensive Community Service programs in La Crosse, Vernon, and Crawford Counties. My interests are working with persons with depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, matters of faith, couples counseling, and the Love & Logic approach to parenting skills.

Clinical Approach:

I would describe my clinical approach as relatively non-directive. I view clients as being the expert on themselves and will provide guidance utilizing a combination of motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy, verbal feedback, communication skill development, and self care.

Hobbies:

I have worked continuously within the field of behavioral health since graduating with my master's degree in Clinical Psychology. I moved to La Crosse, WI 32 years ago and made it my home. I am married with 3 children. We enjoy summers on the water water-skiing, boating, swimming, relaxing with the kids. We enjoy downhill skiing in winter because you we need something fun to do in winter. I have a pilot license and enjoy a flight now and then.
