Kirsten and I met twice and had several text exchanges. She was able to help me identify issues in a parental relationship and set boundaries. It was really helpful to talk through my challenges and prep for hard conversations before I had them. She was very approachable and non-judgmental. I really enjoyed her approach.

Kirsten is so kind and has such a bubbly personality. She makes me feel so comfortable every time we meet and I am so happy I got matched with her. I would definitely recommend her to other people. She gives great advice and listens to me when I need it and provides advice when I ask!!
