About Me

Life is complex! Everyone goes through struggles, experience difficulties, and face setbacks. Sometimes emotions and circumstances can feel overwhelming. Therapy encourages open and honest dialogue about issues that are causing distress in an individual’s life. In a therapeutic relationship, clients work to identify and understand how these stressors impact their life, plus develop strategies to manage the symptoms. If you long to live more fully, connect with others more authentically, and accept yourself, flaws and all, you are in the right place!

My name is Kirsten, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 6 years of experience. I received my Master’s in Social Work from Texas A&M University-Commerce and have experience across a variety of treatment settings. My work with clients is supportive, goal-oriented, and rooted in proven methods.

I am passionate about creating a space for anyone who chooses to boldly take control of their lives and has the desire to be mentally and emotionally healthy. It is my goal to provide a positive, non-judgmental, and supportive environment in which you feel both seen and heard. I work collaboratively with you to identify your strengths, areas for growth and help you move along the path to change. I draw from various therapeutic modalities to create a tailored approach based on your presenting concerns, goals, and motivation.

Sometimes we need additional support to reach our potential and navigate change, and it is my honor to be a helping hand in your life. I am committed to assisting individuals in building on their existing strengths and exploring, setting, and meeting achievable goals.

Let's take this journey together!

I’ve enjoyed working with Kirsten - I feel like she truly listens and helps me face my issues head-on!

We just started our therapy journey but I can already tell I’m on the right track. Kirsten is very personable which is something I haven’t found in therapy before. She listens and provides valuable feedback, it’s helping me rethink the way I operate. Before we started I felt trapped with my own feelings now I’m learning to take control, thank you! I would recommend her one million percent to anyone else struggling with anxiety, grief, depression.
