great person all around and listens and understands my problems and helps me to find ways to cope with them.
Kristen is a highly skilled therapist with a warm and affirming demeanor. I had not had the best experience with BetterHelp therapists until her. It's been such a blessing to finally have someone who I feel confident in and whose style is supportive to what I need. Ive already been able to make good progress. If you're looking for someone who really listens, puts your desires first, is a clear and open communicator, present and who leaves any ego at the door, give Kristen a try.
Kristen is a great support and challenges me to grow. She’s super great at what she does, and shares gives wisdom and encouragement!
I felt comforted by Kristen right away. She is soothing to talk to and reminds me every day that I am not alone. I have noticed a lot of progress in a very short time, and I owe it all to her.
Kristen is awesome to work with. She’s so supportive and a very good listener. She makes lots of very helpful suggestions to work through struggles.
Kristen is a fantastic counsellor, coach and friend. She is full of integrity and is always impeccable with her word. I can always count on her to follow through with keeping me accountable for my goals. She is supportive, caring and kind. I am blessed to have her on my side to help me navigate through life’s challenges and celebrate it’s successes. Without Kristen by my side, I would be lost in the wrong direction. Thank you for everything you do for me Kristen.
I highly recommend Kristen as a counsellor because of her non-judgmental and warm approach to help with solving problems. She also had a diverse set of skills, including life coaching which has been very beneficial to me. I am confident that she will be able to help you with whatever you are dealing with.
