MEET KRISTEN

Kristen Brown, B.Sc., M.Ed. 

Mental Health Therapist in Edmonton

Child, Adult and Couples Therapist

Kristen Brown Edmonton

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, adolescents, and adults who experience anxiety, depression, self-esteem concerns, 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.

Assessments

 In addition to counselling, I will be offering psychoeducational assessments in the near future.
