Leslie Grossmann Brown, MSW, LICSW
Leslie Grossmann Brown is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She got
her Bachelor of Science degree at Siena College and her Master's degree
from SUNY Albany both in Social Work. She has worked with a diverse group
of individuals over the years. Primarily in Day Treatment and Intensive
Outpatient Treatment. Leslie has worked as an adjunct Professor of Social
Work for 5 years. She enjoys helping people formulate their goals and
finding ways to work together to keep people moving forward toward goals.
At the same time evaluating whether those goals are still relevant in the
persons life. This growth of reaching and changing goals has been seen in
the classroom, with individuals and their families. Another way Leslie has
found her passion is working on a team of individuals who are all working
in the best interest of the populations we treat.
Leslie believes in the powerful components of DBT and the way it has shaped
her practice. DBT is a collaborative effort shared equally between the
therapist and the individuals they work with. It is also a team collaboration
with providers from different disciplines coming together to help each other
Leslie has started DBT programs and gotten a team state certified. The work
with Psych Recovery is an exciting way to join an established nationally
certified team. The opportunity to be working with established experts is
exciting. My wish is that the DBT program grows and each person is enriched
by those around them.
