Anna Lee Brown is a clinical mental health counselor with 14 years of experience providing counseling and supervision. Her clinical practice orients from trauma-informed, Adlerian, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy perspectives. Currently a Counselor Education and Supervision doctoral candidate, Brown’s dissertation research focuses on how a counselor’s transcendent experiences impact the level of empathy for their clients. The power of Christ’s redeeming love shapes her view of self, others, and using counseling to help to heal a hurting world. Brown’s other research interests include multiracial identity development, mindfulness, and centering prayer. Prior to Montreat College, Brown worked at Mt. Prospect Academy in Plymouth, New Hampshire, and New Vista in Lexington, Kentucky.
Brown holds a B.A. in Psychology from Asbury University and M.A. in Mental Health Counseling from Asbury Theological Seminary. She is currently a doctoral candidate at Regent University and is thrilled to join the counseling faculty at Montreat bringing experience from the field into the classroom, training students to become competent, ethical and effective counselors.
Anna Lee Brown is married to her beloved Matthew and enjoys traveling, climbing, and camping with their three young children.
