Kearsten is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate based in Denver, Colorado, where she welcomes clients who are seeking health and wholeness in their lives. She specializes in helping young adults understand how their past informs their present, with the goal of health and healing in their future. Kearsten understands how overwhelming it can feel to be pursuing help for the first time, and she prioritizes creating a space for her clients that is full of empathy, warmth, care, and kindness.
Kearsten primarily practices therapy through the lens of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), helping clients to understand the relationship between their actions, thoughts and beliefs. The goal of CBT is to deepen an individual's awareness of self, understanding what is beyond the behavior or experience, and then shifting into understanding their core beliefs and internal dialogue. These underlying beliefs carry power in a person’s daily thinking - through relationships, work, spirituality, family dynamics, and their own mental health. Kearsten does not leave client’s alone in their exploration of self, and will utilize techniques to help her clients build confidence in their ability to grow and change.
Kearsten identifies as a Christian, and has years of experience helping individuals understand how their faith informs their overall mental health. Kearsten values inclusivity, and does not limit her work to only Christian clients. She has experience working with individuals with a variety of faith backgrounds.
Kearsten is available to see clients both in-person, and remote. She is currently accepting new clients. Her primary office is located in the heart of Denver, right off of Colfax & York. It is relevant to note that Kearsten’s office is located in a church building.
