Hi. I'm Kristen Lund. I provide psychotherapy to individuals, and groups, and have been doing so for more than 20 years. As a person many people find me genuine, humorous and warm. As a therapist many clients find me direct, challenging, compassionate, intuitive and respectful. I enjoy working with male and female adults of many different orientations, races and cultures. One new thing about my work is that I have now expanded into a group practice! If I am full I have many wonderful therapists on my team that can see you! Check out my website to meet them. www.kristenlund.com
I enjoy helping people identify, process and gain insight into both conscious and unconscious issues. I also find it critical to teach them invaluable emotional skills, so they can have a sense of control over their moods. In addition, I coach people I work with into creating a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
I specialize in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, otherwise known as DBT. I am intensively trained and have been Certified by the State of Mn.DHS in DBT. I, also, have received advanced training in Prolonged Exposure for trauma issues. Please see my website for more information; www.kristenlund.com I also have job openings for therapists. If interested email!
