Hi! My name is Marilyn Julia Brown and I’m the founder and Clinical Director of A Mindful Way Counseling a private psychotherapy and energy healing practice! I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Reiki Master providing psychotherapy, energy healing, workshops, and clinical supervision in the lovely South Bay of Los Angeles.
My goal as your therapist is to guide you in accessing your own place of inner peace, wisdom, and courage to face life's challenges and make the necessary changes to create the life you want to live and I utilize mindfulness skills and narrative therapy skills to accomplish these goals. I have 18 years of experience with clients experiencing Eating and related Disorders, Self Esteem and Body Image, Addiction and Substance Use Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Spiritual Growth and Development, and challenges that arise from life transitions. Let me help you reach your full potential by learning to live in the moment!
My broader goal for the mental health and wellness field is to decolonize psychotherapy and healing to create healing spaces for Black folks who has long been excluded from this type of healing. I lead a free monthly Sisters Healing Circle in the community to provide a safe space for Black women to discuss our reclaiming our healing!
In recent years my own healing journey led me to reiki and other ancient and powerful forms of energy healing and these modalities have empowered me to claim my own healing in a way I didn’t know was possible!
In 2018, I became a certified Reiki practitioner and crystal healer and I am so excited to incorporate these powerful energy healing tools into the I do with my psychotherapy clients. Transformative healing happens through the mind/body/and soul so to have the tools to address this all areas with my clients, I feel more equipped than ever before to assist you on your healing journey!
