I did therapy with Kristen for 2 months that envolved talking about my background, my current situation and my plans for a hopeful future. Kristen was was very helpful in listening to what I had to say but also helping me make my own decisions by guiding me through my thoughts instead of just telling me what I should be doing. To me, that’s the most helpful objective in therapy. Talking through my thoughts, feelings, actions and objectives in order to feel comfortable about where I am and what I want to be present day. Very grateful for Kristen’s help.
Kristen is an amazing, caring, compassionate therapist. I have been doing therapy with her for a little over 2 months, and the progress she has helped me achieve has been great! I discussed getting on anxiety medication with her for the first time in my life, and I gave it a shot and that along with the sessions has really helped me tremendously. She has helped me see myself in a light that I hadn't been able to. She has helped me find ways to manage my anxiety in healthy and positive ways. She is an amazing listener, I always joke that I barely let her talk but honestly just having her listen to me and give me such positive feedback and great vibes in all our sessions. She really is amazing and I am so happy I connected with her as I did. Thank you so much!!
Love how Kristen listens to me. I don’t feel judge at all. She gives me new perspective in how to handle and how to see what I am going through. She helps me see myself in a better way. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Kristen has helped me so much in just 2 weeks. I’m in a better mood and she has given me hope that everything is going to be okay. Her exercises she gives me to use throughout the week are so helpful and I’m so grateful I have her!!

Kristen is an amazing therapist who has helped me find ways to take control of my anxieties! For the longest time, I was resigned to letting my anxiety make me miserable, but Kristen gave me the tools, encouragement, and guidance to turn that around. She’s wonderfully kind and insightful, and explains things in a way that finally clicked for me. Kristen is an absolute miracle worker, and I am so grateful for all the progress she’s helped me achieve.

Kristen has been superb in regards to providing support for myself in just a few weeks. I believe she has explored all issues in which I sought to gain from counselling, plus more.
She has been very patient and understanding throughout our communication, both via video calls and messaging.
Kristen is a wonderful individual, with a warm nature and is truly living out her God-given calling and I would definitely work with her again in the future.
Kristen is brilliant, in a short time she has helped me so much and I will never forget what she has taught me :)
