Meet Clint Kreider

What is one thing that you have learned through your own therapy?

I learned that becoming aware of what goes on inside me is the only way to find the courage to heal and/or change. I cannot change anything I am not aware of, and most of us do not instinctively attempt to understand the more difficult emotions we experience.


What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Since I was a child I have wanted to understand how people become sustainably content and why some people accept misery in their lives. I wanted to find the answers and do the difficult work so that I might be able to help others on their journey.

How do you approach the stigma surrounding mental health and therapy?

I like to help people understand that it is not about needing therapy, it is about deserving therapy. We all deserve the support that therapy provides.

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
