About the presenter

Suzanne Brown, LCSW, LCAS

Suzanne is inspired by the light of the human spirit and holds hope in believing change is always possible. With this foundation, she runs a private practice in Chapel Hill, NC. In addition to therapy and coaching, Suzanne enjoys teaching and presenting to both clinicians and people in the community. She also serves as a member of the UNC Satir Program teaching team.

Suzanne earned a BA in Psychology with a minor in Business from East Carolina University and a Master of Social Work degree with the Substance Use & Addictions Specialist Certification from UNC-Chapel Hill. Her professional interests meet at the intersection of substance use disorders, trauma, codependency, ongoing family conflict, and the process of change.

In her free time, she enjoys cooking, the outdoors, and quality time with friends. Living in downtown Durham is a treat and affords her the convenience to explore many amazing restaurants, attend Durham Bulls Baseball games, hike the trails of the Eno River, and kayak at nearby Falls Lake.

A top priority is the safety of our patients and employees. Our full-time medical and clinical team are fully prepared to recognize warning signs and implement preventative measures. Follow all of our updates at X
