About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LICSW) for over ten years. I have an extensive background in proving individual and group therapy and have worked with all age groups (children-geriatrics).

I have worked with clients in the areas of anxiety, depression, career issues, grief/loss, and family conflict. My role as a practitioner is to go by the motto “start where the client is at.” I do not believe there is a one size fits all approach for therapy. I have engaged clients in CBT, psychodynamic approaches, and many stress management exercises.

I am ready to help you take the first steps to having a happier life!

In our short time, I’ve enjoyed working with Kristy through the issues I am dealing with. An excellent listener, she provides helpful feedback and questions to help me to dig deeper into the things that bother me.

Although I've only met with her a couple of times so far, I feel like Krissy listens to me, and I really appreciate it. It's intimidating to start a new therapy relationship because you have so much back story to tell that explains where you are right now... So I'm thankful for how she listens and for the thoughts she offers. I don't feel judged or criticized, I feel understood, which is huge.

I've enjoyed my conversations with Kristin, listens closely without blaming or shaming. It's as though I can hear her listening and thinking before she speaks in her calm and assuring way. Recommend!
