Kirstin Paul

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I have a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology. I am licensed to practice in North Carolina as a Licensed Psychological Associate (LPA) and in Colorado as an Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I currently reside and practice in Colorado. I have worked in the mental health field for 18 years, and I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns from depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and trauma. I have worked in a number of settings to include inpatient hospital, outpatient clinic, private practice, schools and justice system. I have also helped those struggling with acute and chronic conditions, as well as anger management, ADHD, grief and loss, and survivors of abuse.

While my counseling style is warm and interactive, I am also direct and solution focused. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I also believe in providing a safe environment for clients to share and grow. My approach combines cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, rational-emotive and client-centered counseling. I also appreciate an integrative approach to include yoga and meditation. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I applaud you for having the insight to seek services and look forward to guiding and empowering you as you take the steps necessary to incite change in your life.

Kirstin has exceeded my expectations for online therapy. The moment we were introduced, there was irony and we’ve just clicked every since. She gets me, and she challenges me to get outside of my tendencies by gently reminding me over and over. This could be annoying for her, but she does it calmly and patiently. I am continuing to learn from her as she sends me resources and follow-up notes constantly. I’m happy to have been matched with Kirstin, and even happier to have discovered BetterHelp.

Kirstin has been awesome. She connected to me in a real way, met me where I am, and has provided practical resources and suggested pathways I can really use to move forward. She is a great listener. I’m highly recommending her (and BetterHelp) already to family and friends.

She is just literally the best person ever.

She is so sweet and smart. She can understand my thoughts even when I can't explain them very well.

Kirstin is really wonderful! She has helped me identify best practices for dealing with depression and anxiety. Kirstin is very calm and understanding and will talk through something until I know I understand it.

Written by S.A. on Jul 18, 2018 after counseling with Kirstin for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I had only a week of counseling, but even in that short time, I saw how caring and supportive Kirstin is. She did everything to make sure I had as much information as she could give in this short time and made me a priority because of the short time. I felt really supported the whole time and can definitely recommend her for others.

I am just starting out but Kirstin has been engaging and supportive. She has challenged me to think and process what is happening and given me positive things to think about with the issues that I face.
