About Blair Brown, PsyD

Dr. Blair Brown is a licensed clinical psychologist providing therapeutic and psychological testing services for children, adolescents, and adults. She sees clients individually, as part of a couple, or as a family.

Dr. Brown received her doctoral degree from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL and completed her internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Streamwood Behavioral Health Hospital. There, she received training in play therapy, collaborative problem solving, dialectical behavioral therapy, crisis management, and applied behavior analysis. Simultaneously, she completed a fellowship in psychoanalysis. Dr. Brown has worked in outpatient, inpatient, school, community, and camp settings.

Areas of interest for Dr. Brown include depression, anxiety, women’s issues, LGBTQIA/Kink, parenting challenges, eating disorders, autism spectrum disorders, divorce, adoption or attachment related concerns, emotional trauma, and grief or loss. Her multifaceted treatment approach includes dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) in combination with client-centered, psychodynamic (interpersonal), and family systems strategies.

To facilitate the diagnostic process and to inform treatment, Dr. Brown also conducts a range of psychological testing that allows her to examine personality structures, behavioral patterns, learning difficulties, and intellectual capacities.

In her professional practice, Dr. Brown believes that developing a solid foundation of trust, empathy, and understanding is the primary catalyst for beginning the process of change. Together, you will examine your history, thought patterns, and ways of relating to others. Through a balance of humor and solemnity, validation and challenge, those small changes will build larger, more lasting changes.
