Stephanie Brown, LMFT is a licensed marriage and family therapist practicing in Chester Springs, Pa. Stephanie graduated from Northcentral University with a masters degree in marriage and family therapy. Her extensive background includes intense work with family systems and at risk children/adolescents struggling with depression, behavior problems, developmental disorders, anxiety, self harm, suicidal ideation, family addictions and family conflict. Stephanie has also worked closely with clients experiencing relational struggles and has helped individuals, families and couples attain healthier and more satisfying connections in their lives.

Stephanie's approach is holistic and systemic, meaning that challenges are regarded from a wide perspective that takes multiple factors into account for treatment, including family dynamics, trauma histories, past relational patterns, and individuals challenges.
