Kirsten Arebalos

LPC

About Me

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 !

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.
