Kristin Burns, Integrative Somatic Psychotherapist, LCSW, SEP, DARe-P, RYT

I am passionate about guiding clients in restoring more aliveness, wholeness and ease in their lives. My practice utilizes a holistic approach that incorporates Somatic, Relational, and Spiritual healing techniques that support moving toward restoration and coherence of the mind, body, and spirit.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Masters of Social Service and Administration from the University of Chicago. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and a Training Assistant with the Somatic Experiencing Training Institute nationally. I am also certified in Diane Poole Heller’s groundbreaking attachment healing work, Dynamic Attachment Repatterning Experience, (DARe) and am a Training Assistant in this work nationally as well. I am trained in Kathy Kain’s Touch Skills for Trauma Therapists, using touch for trauma recovery and for deepening somatic awareness. I am a Level one Therapist with Internal Family Systems (IFS) and am currently studying Somatic IFS with Susan McConnell. For over 25 years, I have studied both eastern and western modalities and philosophies to support healing and am a certified Yoga Instructor with the Yoga Alliance, Prenatal Yoga Teacher, Birth Doula, Reiki Master/Teacher, Zen Shiatsu Practitioner, and Heart Mind Qi Gong Instructor.

Please feel free to reach out for a free 15 minute consultation to see if we might be a good fit together. You may reach me by email or phone: 312-852-0515
