About Me

My name is Kristen Perry, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), practicing in Oklahoma for 4 years. I provide person centered treatment, therapy is about you and your needs. My job is not to fix someone, but to partner with the individual, couple or family to a resolution that works best for their situation. I practice therapy primarily from an Acceptance and Commitment Theory (ACT) modality. The ACT perspective identifies values that assist in making value based decisions rather than reactive decisions. Many of us feel shame for the things we feel, think, and remember, the truth is, we often have no control of those things, but what we can control is the relationship we have with what we think, feel and remember. I teach my clients to be an observer rather than a participant with past events. We can't change our pasts but we can create a relationship with it allowing us to grow past negative and destructive experiences.

I am experienced in treating those with severe mental illness (SMI) in an inpatient hospital setting who are currently experiencing psychosis, mania, depression, anxiety, suicidal threats, attempts and thinking. My current position also allows me to assist in treating those with substance abuse addictions. I have extensive experience treating those with personality disorders.

My goal is to assist people out of their past and into their present in order to live life to its fullest.

Thank you for all your help in conquering my anger and freeing myself from my own thoughts!

She has a way of making you feel comfortable yet she hold you accountable at the same time.

She is great at getting through to find the REAL issues. Not the BS I'm spouting to her. She is great.

I’ve only had a few sessions with Kristen so far but from the very first session, I’ve had a great experience. I can tell she’s extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of expertise in the areas that I’m wanting help with. She’s great at listening and not interrupting. She really makes me think about *why* i have the beliefs, feelings, etc that I have, rather than jumping to conclusions and telling me how i feel. She makes me feel really comfortable and validated. So far, I am very impressed with her.

So far I feel very supported and guided by my counselor. Kristen is easy to talk to and I appreciate the supporting evidence she uses.
