Kristen Paradise

MS, LPCC
Therapist

Kristen prefers to assist those clients who identify as transgender, or at any space on the gender spectrum, as well as the broader LGBTQ+ community. Kristen is a certified End-of-Life Doula, and enjoys working with clients who are experiencing bereavement, grief and loss.

Kristen also assists persons who have concerns with trauma, depression, anxiety, military affairs, domestic violence, and individuals who have worked in the sex industry.

One of the main intentions of her work in mental health, is to assist individuals with feeling less alone in this world, and finding peace from within, so that it can be spread externally in one’s life. Through the process of Ketamine Assisted Therapy (KAP), it is her hope that those who have struggled to find something that works for them, are now able to work through some of the aspects of life, that may be blocking them from reaching their personal goals.

Clients can expect unconditional acceptance and compassion, while learning to cope with and assess one’s own circumstances, with healthy guidance. When we are shamed for simply who we are, how can we ever learn to be authentically ourselves? It is Kristen’s goal to assist clients in developing a strong and healthy sense of self, sprinkled with a ton of authenticity.

Kristen’s specialties include: Transgender/Gender identity concerns, LGBTQ+ community, Death, Grief and Loss, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Sex work, Veterans affairs, and First responders.

Techniques used are individualized to meet the needs of each client, but the basis of Kristen’s work is reached through Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Transpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as Person-Centered and Existential Therapy.
