About Me

Greetings! My name is Corine Brown (aka. Dr. C'MA), I have a Doctorate in Social Work (DSW) and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Approved Clinical Supervisor (LCSW-BACS) based in New Orleans, LA. I honor the unique insights and expertise of the participant and tailor my efforts in an emergent and presence-centered way: My work is a commitment to the cultivation of a felt-sense of empowerment. | A bit about my approach to therapy: A Social Work Embodied approach utilizes a strengths-focused lens, grounded in radical compassion and social work core values in an effort to reimagine what healing can feel like in light of one's own unique circumstances and the inherently oppressive systems we have learned to navigate throughout our lives. | What you can expect from our first session: I believe in operationalizing "Client As Expert" and I defer to participants to take a co-creative leadership role while I support and encourage them on their own healing journey. I honor neurodiversity and this process helps the participant come to feel more at home within themselves so that they can leave behind narratives that no longer serve them.

Education & Experience

Prior to pursuing social work, I obtained an AA in Liberal Studies where my focus was on child development/early childhood & elementary education. I eventually went on to get my Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees in social work. I began to expand more intentionally into Mind Body Therapeutix through Embodied Philosophy's online certificate program just prior to 2020. In more recent years I have shifted my focus to larger systems transformation and am a committed member of an international working group brought together through the U-Lab journey offered through the Presencing Institute (MIT): We are educators committed to the process of lifelong learning and this lens informs my approach to therapy.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I have dedicated the past decade to spearheading and directing mental health and wellness programming for the Covenant House New Orleans community, a residential program for youth ages 16-24.
