Dr. Kristen English

(Psy.D.)

About Me

My name is Dr. Kristen English, and I am a Pennsylvania-licensed psychologist. I have 15 years of counseling experience with teens and their families, as well as with adults across the lifespan, and I’ve developed a particular therapy-niche with college students and young adults. My primary areas of practice include navigating anxiety, grief and loss, trauma and PTSD, time-of-life transitions, and identity development. These therapeutic partnerships often involve identity-affirming explorations of racial, ethnic, LGBTQIA, and neuro-diversity matters within clients’ lives.

I strive to help individuals feel deeply regarded as I support clients in exploring their experiences of self-worth, hope, flexibility, and compassion toward themselves and with others. What keeps a person stuck within struggles and what inner strengths are beacons for positive growth and change? These ideas, along with years of psychodynamic and family-systems training and a deep respect for mindfulness-, CBT-, and behavioral-based interventions, inspire my practice.

I am so excited to bring these therapeutic conversations into clients’ homes, apartments, dorm rooms, work spaces, and any other inspiring places. Thanks for inviting me in!
