I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

I want to create a space that validates your experience and empowers your best self. Whether you are an individual, in a relationship, or have children that may benefit from therapy, I can help the preferred story of your life come to light. My systemic approach focuses on exploring all the parts, both inside and outside yourself, that make up your unique experience. Once we understand all the influences in your life, then we can move towards healing and change. I focus on inner development, relationship connection, and the importance of social, racial, and cultural identity. I know this thing called life can be hard. It takes courage and vulnerability to want change, and I look forward everyday to supporting my clients in whatever way they need.

Kristen Patrickson

LPC

Healing happens when we have something larger than ourselves to grow towards.
I believe that the quality of our connection to ourselves, our loved ones, and our community is essential to our well-being. All too often, because of past traumatic experiences, unfortunate events, or simply because of an inability to communicate, we become disconnected from those points of contact. In my approach to counseling, I believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the most important element in healing. When we don’t feel safe, heard, or understood it makes it difficult to own and/or speak our truth, and live our lives accordingly. I believe that my role as a therapist is not to be the expert of your life, rather, my job is to help facilitate a process of unfolding of your own understanding–one that brings you more clarity and insight regarding challenging or dysfunctional behaviors and/or feelings you may be experiencing. I aspire to empower you to achieve the goals that you identify, and to help bring awareness to areas that you feel may be holding you back.

I’ve worked primarily in the addictions field at both a residential facility and at an outpatient clinic. I have experience with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, self-esteem issues, adolescents and family and couples’ therapy. I have a second master’s in Transpersonal Psychology which has greatly influenced my understanding of the significance of connection as a healing agent. I incorporate mindfulness into my approach to build a solid foundation of listening to their thoughts, sensations, and feelings–thereby building a stronger connection to oneself, to cope with the stressors of daily life. I also incorporate cognitive behavioral approaches, narrative therapy, positive psychology, and solution focused therapy. There are as many paths to healing as there are people. I will meet you where you are at on your path and together, we will work towards the direction that best serves you to meet your needs.
