Kirsten Louise Guest
She/Her/HersLicensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Kirsten Cantley is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in New York, NY. Kirsten specializes in tailoring her therapy services for those who feel exhausted trying to keep up the facade of success. Many of Kirsten’s clients are women who seem like they “have it all” – strong relationships, successful careers, and healthy habits. However, many of these women feel like they’re faking their lives and become disconnected from who they are at their core. Kirsten helps these clients navigate the pressures of their lives as well as depression, anxiety, or other mental health symptoms.
Kirsten’s approach to therapy begins by developing a strong rapport with her clients. She gets to know her clients’ backgrounds, thoughts, feelings, and dreams. Clients detail out their stressors and collaborate with Kirsten to set goals for themselves. Each session, Kirsten helps clients determine the next step towards reaching these goals. She also helps clients to recognize their progress and to feel empowered to prioritize their mental health. Kirsten takes a Feminist, strengths-based approach to working with clients.
Kirsten earned her Master’s degree from Northwestern University. She is a holistic therapist and helps clients improve all aspects of their lives, including their physical health, mental health, social health, and more. Her goal is to help clients find joy in their lives again and to feel more like themselves.
