I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with 10 years of experience working as a counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, addiction, trauma, anxiety, and disability related issues. Additionally, I have extensive experience working with clients who are neurodivergent, on the Autism Spectrum, or have a developmental disability.
When counseling, I believe that unconditional positive regard is key to building a good therapeutic relationship. I am most familiar with Trauma Informed Approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Reality Therapy. However, I try to take an eclectic approach and consider each case individually.
Therapy can be a transformative and positive experience. I am excited to partner with you.

LPC #81185 (Expires: 2022-02-28)
Kristen made me feel safe to
unpack my past trauma. She was open and non-judgmental.
She went out of her way to answer my questions.
She allowed me to process things in my own way.
I would recommend her as a therapist.
She is very good at understanding and listening to me, relating to my situation and giving me lots of work to improve myself.
Lovely lady. Understands the necessity of time keeping. Seems to have a wide expertise. No nonsense. Understands reality.
