About me

Hi there! I'm Kristel, thanks so much being here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor and retired school counselor with 20 years of professional work experience. I have worked with students in the alternative school setting for 13 years so creating connection, building rapport, creating trust and helping clients to cope with hard feelings and situations has become my specialty. The clients I serve are children and teenagers, parents, emerging adults and women. My areas of focus are helping clients experiencing stress and anxiety, depression, self-esteem/confidence, divorce, life transitions, parenting challenges, school refusal, behavioral issues, and women's issues . I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Therapy isn’t just about managing symptoms; it’s understanding the whole person to help identify and make sense of the root of the emotion. In therapy, I work with the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being helping you to heal from the inside out and, in turn, develop a new healthy way of living that will last.
Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Thanks for being here and I look forward to meeting you.
