Kristen Ezsol, MA, LPCA

Welcome!

We all have an inborn ability to heal and experience wholeness, but it’s only possible through relationships. We have an inherently natural bend toward safety and connection, and my goal is to help you find more of those in your life – in your relationship with your spouse, partner, or friends, as well as with yourself – and what you value most in life.

I found my career path as a therapist through my experience in therapy. I have felt the power of being deeply seen and heard, and I genuinely believe in this process.

Most of my training has been in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), both somatic forms of therapy. I have loved learning about the body for years! My undergrad was in Culinary Nutrition, and I may have accidentally/on purpose taken anatomy twice.

When I started exploring the body and its connection to emotions and trauma, I knew I found my fit. I hope we can help you feel more at home in your body.

Biography

Originally from New York, I spent considerable time in Colorado before venturing to South Carolina. I earned my undergrad in Culinary Nutrition from Johnson & Wales University and an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Colorado Christian University. I also completed training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and in Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders.

I love running and yoga, spending time outside and reading, or hanging out with my husband, our one-year-old daughter, Aspen, and our doodle, Theo.
