Dr. Brown diligently provides her patients and their families with competent and compassionate care, which highlights her extensive knowledge of clinical psychiatry. Dr. Brown established The ADHD Wellness Center after discovering there were very few community and medical resources to support the ADHD community. Although her focus involves the medication treatment of ADHD and its co-morbidities, she also believes in order to have optimal control of the disorder, ADHD coaching, effective Parent Management Training, and other forms of behavior management are equally important. Additionally, she is an advocate of innovative resources for positive parenting and healthy family relationships and her passion extends within her public speaking role, promoting awareness and education about mental health conditions.
Dr. Brown is actively involved in local and national organizations and has presented at both the local and national level on many topics in child psychiatry.
