Kerin is the best, most wonderful therapist I have had- and I have had a few. She listens and picks up on things I would never have picked up on myself. Her suggestions are kind and open. She never makes me feel like there is anything I need to do, rather she offers things I might want to try and lets me decide. When I work through something I have been struggling with, she is proud of me and encourages me to be proud of myself. I have gotten through so much in the past 6 months because of her. I truly feel I am a better version of myself because of her. Truly I cannot recommend her enough, especially if you are someone who struggles with disordered eating and body image issues.

Kerin's patience, experience and knowledge to uncover the true reasons for a "help-seeker" to engage with her services are impressive. Throughout the counseling conversations she stays focused on providing information and tools to lift the client over their emotional challenges.

Not only has Kerin been professional and punctual, but I appreciate her patience. I do a lot of deep thinking and I can present myself in a complicated way. I believe that Kerin has been demonstrating her experience and expertise by helping me navigate these ideas. I have seen real results both emotionally and in my life because of our conversations.
