Specializing in Dance Movement Therapy, Anxiety & OCD, Trauma, Pregnancy & Beyond in Pasadena, MD
Meet Kristine Purcell
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Maryland. I have been in the mental health for 11 years. I believe that counseling works with the right fit, the right goals, and the right foundation. I am a white, CIS gendered female. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally and actively working on understanding how my privilege affects oppressed groups.
My Approach to Therapy:
I will guide you to become more embodied and empowered in your feelings, body, and self so that you can feel more grounded, confident, inspired, and capable of connecting with others. I employ creativity, imagery, metaphor, play, and nonverbal approaches to build your resilience, strength, and sense of self.
I use many different strategies and interventions to help my clients reacht their goals. Foundationally I use movement to understand where you are in the process. This does not mean that we will do movement but it is the lens I see our work through. I do invite clients to engage in movmeent in our sessions when open and willing. The healing power of movement and dance can be seen for hundreds of centuries as a way to express ourselves without words.
Client’s who work well with me:
√ Clients who can be expressive even if you may not be open to movement.
√ Clients who are willing to explore the deeper meaning of what may be going on in their body.
√ Clients who are seeking a shift, even if its a small one.
√ Clients who are willing to be creative in trying different strategies to acheive their goals.
My Focus Area’s:
I work with young children, young adults, adults, and couples.
