Psychologist Kristan Furan, Ph.D. will begin practicing at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in January. She is joining Psychologist Ken Fogal and Counselor Pennie Carnes on CRMC’s Behavioral Health Team.
Furan treats individuals, couples and families struggling with needs such as grief and loss, stress and anxiety, panic attacks and fears, life and family transitions, parenting and relational conflict, depression and other mood disorders, trauma, social difficulties, chronic illness, self-defeating or harmful behaviors, substance abuse and issues with self-esteem. She uses a compassionate, collaborative and mind-body-spirit approach and incorporates insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavioral (DBT), and solution-focused interventions. Common therapy outcomes include clarity about circumstances and life goals, increased compassion for self and others, regulation of emotions, development of healthy thinking patterns and a resilient mindset, effective coping and communication skills, stronger problem solving and decision-making abilities, increased sense of life purpose, and renewed and healthier connections with self and others.
Furan has previously worked and/or trained in settings including group private practice, crisis intervention, hospitals, the VAMC, day treatment, forensics and a substance abuse treatment center. She completed her doctoral degree in clinical psychology in 2004.
