About Kristin Burns

Kristin Burns is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Somatic Experiencing Practicioner, Reiki Master/ Teacher and Zen Shiatsu Practicioner. She brings a unique perspective to her work, incorporating 20 years of studying both eastern and western modalities and philosophies. Kristin currently practices psychotherapy, energywork, and bodywork in Oak Park, IL. She works primarily with adolescents and adults in her private practice. Kristin utilizes a nonjudgmental, body-centered, strengths-based approach in her work.

Through her years of study and practice, Kristin continued to explore more about the body’s response to traumas and stresses. She became more interested and invested in the body mind spirit connection, realizing the talking piece of releasing old experiences, patterns and emotions is important, though in many cases, not enough. As she embraced this idea of our body holding onto our experiences, both positive and challenging or traumatic, she realized the body and spirit needed equal, if not more support in releasing these negative patterns that may be holding us back from being our best selves physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Kristin continues to go deeper into her current knowledge base and seeks out new information that embraces this mind body connection.  In psychotherapy sessions, she combines traditional evidenced based talk therapies; Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, with body-centered therapies; Somatic Experiencing, Becoming Safely Embodied, Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation and Creative Processes to support meaningful shifts in clients. Kristin genuinely respects the partnership and privilege of collaborating with clients to facilitate their inner wisdom toward healing.
