Dr. Barbara J. Brown is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who earned her bachelor’s degree from Wellesley College and her master’s and doctoral degrees from Boston University in Massachusetts. She has practiced psychology in Washington DC for over 30 years and founded the CapitolHill Consortium for Counseling & Consultation, LLC (CCCC) in 2009.
CCCC consists of a dedicated group of multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary clinicians who provide psychotherapy, bio-psycho-social assessment, and psychological testing to meet community mental health needs of children, adolescents, and adults in the DMV region (www.ccccmentalhealth.com). CCCC also offers consultation, presentations, and diverse program services to community-based and corporate organizations. CCCC is certified as a woman-owned business enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and a woman-owned small business (WOSB) as designated by the National Women’s Business Council.
Dr. Brown believes that accessible, affordable, and culturally competent health care is imperative and that routine mental health screening at key developmental stages across the life span is critical to optimal health and prevention of common-place tragedies. She believes that everyone can benefit from psychotherapy at some point in their lives; it is a strength, not a weakness to understand and empower oneself. She currently serves on the Advisory Council for the Boris L. Henson Foundation whose mission is to destigmatize and promote mental health services in the Black community.
Dr. Brown has been a proud member of professional organizations and groups who provide community service including the Women President’s Organization, American Psychological Association, Association of Black Psychologists, The Links, Incorporated, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Jack & Jill of America, Incorporated, and The Girl Friends, Incorporated.
