Bailey Brown, CSAT-C, LPCA

Independent Contractor 
Hello, my name is Bailey and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I have received a Master of Science Degree in Mental Health Counseling and am currently working towards my independent license. I began my career in this field by working in many diverse roles. I have worked with acute mental health, court-mandated treatment, and addiction centers. For the majority of my career, I have worked in inpatient treatment centers providing therapy to adult men and women struggling with addiction and co-occurring issues. I absolutely love the work that I do and seeing individuals progress from the worst point in their lives to thriving in recovery and health.

I specialize in treating drug and alcohol addiction, sex addiction, pornography addiction, and intimacy disorders. I also specialize in working with individuals who struggle co-occurring issues such as trauma, personality disorders, anxiety as well as other issues. Similarly, I also work with the partners and adult children of betrayal trauma, a byproduct of sexual betrayal. Sexual Betrayal is unfortunately a significantly common issue though it is typically unidentified by traditional clinicians who have not been trained as sex addiction therapists. Betrayal trauma, a byproduct of sexual betrayal, is also recognized as a fairly new concept in the mental health field. Many of the individuals with whom I have worked that have been exposed to sexual betrayal, meet the criteria for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) though, unfortunately, it commonly goes undiagnosed, unaddressed and unresolved. To address all of these issues, I provide a combination of treatment modalities to include evidence-based interventions as well as experiential interventions. More specifically, I take an eclectic approach to providing an individual the means to grow and heal.

Whether you are the individual struggling with addiction and mental health issues, or the betrayed partner, we will collaborate to identify what you need to resolve the trauma and to heal. I operate from a trauma model which means I work with you to understand how childhood and adolescent traumas have contributed to and impacted your adult decisions, struggles and relationships. We will work together to determine which areas of your life need improvement and which areas will need to be fundamentally restructured.

Due to having worked with individuals with the most dark, painful and taboo secrets, I tell my clients that there is nothing you can share with me that will be judged or cannot be resolved. I have helped thousands of individuals clean out the most shameful parts of their addictions and life histories; all while showing compassion and empathy. As the old adage goes, ‘secrets keep you sick’ so let’s get those off of your chest, process through the pains, and move on to a life of recovery, peace and emotional freedom.
