Your life starts with you

Counseling by Kristen

Your life starts with you



My name is Kristen Burns and I graduated from Ottawa University in 2014 with a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling with a focus on Trauma, Abuse and Deprivation. Since then I have continued to expand my knowledge and skills with continued training in trauma therapies such as EMDR, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Traumatic Stress Studies and Post Induction Therapy. Since 2014 I have worked at The Meadows, a world-renown inpatient treatment facility. Here I have assisted clients to discuss their trauma and addition (process and substance) issues. I also enjoy working with the LGBTQIA+ population; helping them, and all my clients, to achieve the goals and life they desire.

I am currently accepting new clients for my private practice. Please contact me to schedule an appointment. My office is located in Surprise, AZ, and I have a profile on Psychology Today located here:

I have also assisted many people find inner peace through guided meditation. I have recently recorded a meditation track to assist with relaxation and increase positive thoughts. Please contact me at to purchase my meditation track.
