Our Clinical Team
Kristin Briggs, Ed.D.
Dr. Kristin Briggs is a licensed psychologist in private practice in the state of NJ and the founder of 3 Calvin Place of Renewal. In her private practice (Healing Journeys, LLC), Dr. Briggs offers individual therapy and group parenting sessions. She believes the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the clinician and the client including the provision of a safe, supportive environment in which to explore innermost thoughts and feelings. Her areas of expertise are working with trauma and resulting symptoms including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, interpersonal difficulties, and anxiety. Trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and informed by Internal Family Systems theory (IFS), Dr. Briggs has worked successfully for the last 20 years with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced an array of traumatic life experiences including sexual and physical abuse, assault, domestic violence, and traumatic grief. As Dr. Briggs has continued to evolve as an individual and a therapist, her intuition and most current research has guided her toward more mindful, holistic, integrative practices combining traditional therapy with energy psychology/healing to effectively access and shift the subconscious patterns established in the early years of life. Having learned that by incorporating mindfulness into her daily life, she feels more balanced, energized, productive and regulated, Dr. Briggs would like to continue to find ways to offer mindful, peaceful ways of living to her clients as well as the broader community through her therapy practice at Healing Journeys, LLC and through the individual and group community offerings from holistic colleagues at 3 Calvin Place of Renewal.
Susan Sprague Lee is a licensed clinical social worker who believes our day-to-day lives are often filled with activities and stress, both positive and negative. She believes therapy a place to explore feelings of stress and learn more effective coping skills to decrease overall negative feelings that can lead to undesired behaviors. She works to provide a safe and comfortable treatment setting that allows clients to work toward integrating a more balanced and healthy lifestyle. She offers an eclectic treatment approach and works collaboratively with clients to create a personalized treatment plan to achieve a decrease in distressing symptoms and increase in overall life satisfaction and purpose.
She has a particular interest in working with women in transition. Women are often viewed as caretakers and multi-taskers in a variety of different roles both in the home and workplace. There is an increased demand placed on women with often little support or encouragement. Thus, she works with women experiencing many different life changes. Some include moving out of their parents' home, making career changes, pregnancy and child birth, raising children, single parenting, dealing with parental illnesses and caretaking, divorce, and marriage.
