I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a combined 18 years experience as a teacher and therapist. I believe that individuals are the experts regarding their own lives. Sometimes shame and guilt along with skewed perceptions of self can be barriers to living a happier, healthier life. I encourage people to practice vulnerability in a safe, validating space to explore issues that are holding them back from functioning the way they would like.
Through a person centered, holistic approach incorporating mindfulness, solution focused therapy, dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing I guide clients through discovering their strengths and deconstructing patterns that may be holding them back from the life they deserve. Life changes, depression, anxiety and trauma among other things can cloud people's futures. Working together we can clear the way to feeling better.
I look forward to connecting with you !

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kirsten Arebalos. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Nothing but praise for Kirsten! I feel completely at ease with her during our sessions, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of her assistance and therapeutic expertise!
My experience has been very positive and I am making progress.
Her methods for helping my unhealthy cycles of productivity started helping immediately. Its still going to be process for me to stick with it, but it completely changed the game
I find Kirsten to be a great listener. I feel like she lets me truly speak about my issues and then always seems to have a great follow up question or response that keeps the conversation productive and helps keep me on topic.
I have started therapy at a very difficult time in my life with so many things going on and Kirsten makes me feel heard and helps me to talk it out during our sessions and guides me to see things from a different perspective. She makes me feel comfortable and able to open up about everything im going through. Im so grateful for our chats each week
Kirsten is very patient and understanding in the issues that I am dealing with. She offers suggestions on how to handle/deal with the issues. She is very nice with a supportive attuttude.
So far we have established a rapport.
We're having only our 3rd session today, but I feel like we've gotten off to a really good start with our first 2 sessions.
She's really helped me rediscover how to be myself, in the face of my fears. I don't know where I would be without her help.
Kirsten is thoughtful, kind, and funny. She listens and responds with deep and helpful questions and insights. We have only been meeting about a month, but I have already gotten a lot out of our time together.
Kirsten is the most amazing therapist I have ever had. She listens to me, respects me and makes me feel so whole. I look forward to therapy every single week.
I have really enjoyed working with Kirsten. She has a kind and approachable demeanor, which I find very important in developing a therapeutic relationship. Kirsten is a great listener and is helpful in holding space and understanding some of the blocks and barriers I have struggled to identify on my own. I highly recommend working with Kirsten.
I always feel better after my sessions with Kirsten. She is caring and a very calming presence. She is helping me to come to realisations about myself and I feel very lucky to have her as my therapist!
Kristen is thoughtful, caring, and strong. She has really been wonderfulabout meeting me where I am mentally and emotionally, and has genuinely put my over apologetic mind at ease. She's helping me accept help, and that's something I've struggled with my whole life. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate her.
Kirsten is an excellent therapist and helped me get through an incredibly frustrating time. She continues to help me through our weekly calls, and I know I can depend on her always being a message away when things get tough again. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Kirsten!
Kristen has helped me understand me as a whole and deal with a lot of issues that come up in my life!
Kirsten is an amazing therapist! She is kind and asks great leading questions to get the root of issues. She also has many tools and tips she shared each week and homework for that helped in day to day situations.
Helped me in a way I couldn’t put in words
