About Kristine Purcell

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Maryland and a Board Certified Dance Movement Therapist. I have been a dancer since childhood and found my passion helping others through movement. My experience in inpatient hospital settings provided me with opportunities to support individuals with emotional and behavioral issues. 

Movement is an integral part of my work with individuals because I know the importance of having things move through our bodies in order to heal. I enjoy my work and I’m always open to diaglogue with my clients about what is working and not working.

My Approach

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.

Clients who work best 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.
