Erin Kent, Psy.D.
Some things cannot be done alone. Managing grief, experiencing loss, living with debilitating anxiety, and tolerating anger and resentment that will not relent - all of these life challenges require the presence of a thoughtful and patient listener who can help bring words to pain where previously there were none. My practice offers individuals the safe space necessary to share troubling feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that have been experienced as shameful, embarrassing, or isolating.
I work with adolescents (beginning at age 14) and adults who are seeking therapy for a variety of reasons, including depression, anxiety, a history of trauma, grief, complicated loss, family conflict, and relationship difficulties. Areas of particular expertise include working with college students, teenage girls suffering from relational abuse and bullying, and adults who are struggling with fertility issues. I work with individuals and couples.
An initial session will begin by sharing what brought you in to therapy, important aspects of your history, and what your goals are for your future. This conversation will allow us to get a sense of what it would be like to work together. After one to three sessions, I will offer my recommendations for treatment either with me or with another clinician who may better serve your needs - my goal is to help you find a good fit. I offer a treatment modality that incorporates elements of psychodynamic, relational, existential, and minfulness based cognitive psychotherapies.
