Leticia Brown (she / her / hers) is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Black queer femme whose practice engages various healing modalities at the intersections of harm reduction, sexuality, and social justice. She prioritizes working with BIPOC & QTBIPOC communities through a liberatory lens that values communal interdependence and affirms the inner healer we all hold within. Constantly exploring ways to decolonize her relationship to healing, she incorporates intergenerational and spiritual exploration, ritual, the use of the body and reconnection to intuition in her practice and sees her role as co-creator with those she walks beside on their healing journeys.  

Leticia has been trained in a variety of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy modalities, including Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy trainings with Sage Institute, Polaris Insight Center, Healing Realms and Doorway Therapeutic Services, where she maintains a small private practice. Leticia was also a trainee of MAPS’ first-ever MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy Therapy Training for Communities of Color, in August of 2019.  

Additionally, she is a therapist with the MAPS expanded access program, using MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for treating severe PTSD.  

In her harm reduction consulting and training, Leticia encourages both self-introspection and challenging discourse. In her work supporting therapists with engagement of anti-racist and decolonizing practices, she aims to offer a sense of groundedness and purpose to the work, while also exploring person of the therapist issues. In her work with clients and therapists, around issues of sexuality and (other) altered states of consciousness she holds a sociopolitical lens and aims to cultivate a safe relationship to the body. In all of this work, Leticia aims to be guided by Ida B. Wells' mantra that "Nobody's free until everybody's free", particularly in her work with QTBIPOC bodies.
