Kristen Brown, M.Ed., B.Sc.
Registered Provisional Psychologist in Edmonton
Child, Adult and Couples Therapist
Therapy for Children, Teens, Adults & Couples
Hi there! I'm Kristen.
The foundation of my practice is to build a supportive space of safety, compassion, and growth. I approach each counselling session with genuine enthusiasm and care as we collaboratively work together to achieve your goals. I enjoy working with children and adolescents who struggle with self-esteem, confidence, anxiety, depression and emotional regulation. I also enjoy providing therapy to adults who experience anxiety, depression, self-esteem concerns, trauma related disorders (PTSD), boundary issues, stress, life transitions, and other mental health concerns. Alongside individual counselling, I am trained in the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy.
In counselling, I believe in working with effective, evidence-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) while also integrating various modalities such as Attachment Theory, Emotion Focused Therapies, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to fit the unique needs of each client. When working with children, I enjoy using play-based and art-based therapies to help little ones process their emotions and work through their experiences.
Outside of therapy, I enjoy traveling, surfing and being outdoors.
