Written on Nov 01, 2022 after therapy with Kristen for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and relationship issues

Kristen was very helpful over the last 6 months. She was honest, but also caring, when it came to my discussions and issues I was going through. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for an open ear and sound advice for any life struggles.

Kristen took the time to understand who I was and helped me work on some things I was aware of, and uncover and work on some things I wasn't aware of. The worksheets she gave were incredibly helpful, and I would highly recommend working with her!

She is awesome! Really listens and takes the time to understand what's bothering me and provides me with resources that help me.

Being new to therapy, I was not sure where to start. I felt something was off, but was either too bewildered or uncertain how to approach my mental health. Kristen is phenomenal at listening and helping to walk through the forest of various competing thoughts through our sessions. At times, it was practical consideration of the issue that I needed to hear or a discussion on what might be at the heart for a topic of concern. A great help in the start to my mental wellness journey.

I am greatly pleased with the quality of conversations I’ve had with Kristen. We have many more things in common than I expected. She’s a perfect match and a great blessing to me and my family right NOW!

Even though my sessions are done and I'm doing better. She still keeps in touch to make sure I'm doing ok. And I really appreciate that.

I love the exercises that were given to me by Kristen and the feedback. Also the flexibility of evening appointments.

Kristen was really great at listening to my story. She was truly able to understand what I was saying and not saying. I was specifically looking for help to build skills to use on a daily basis and in specific circumstances. Based off of my experience with mindfulness, she was able to recommend a tailored and actionable plan. The progress we have been making has been good and I am thankful for her support!

I have only had one session with Kristen so far. I am extremely impressed with her. And I am not easily impressed. She made me feel extremely comfortable and gave me a lot of great feedback and tools to start using to get myself on the mend. Greatly appreciated!

Written on Jun 09, 2022 after therapy with Kristen for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

I really enjoyed the chat we had and it seemed very natural and authentic. I felt heard and understood. There's only been one chat so far but she gave me plenty of time to rely on her to help me sort out things that have been emotionally distressing me. And I even have some goals she gave me to work on by the end of it, along with some worksheets. This actually makes me feel like I'm getting somewhere and getting my money's worth to invest in.

Very good at making you feel comfortable right away and easy to talk to from the start. She’s great at offering her point of view without feeling like it’s a direct order and is very reassuring when you’re open and honest. So happy I found her!

I’ve only had two sessions with Kristen but the ability to message her back and forth has been so helpful! She responds to me in a very timely matter and gives me lots of tools to help with my coping and problem solving skills. I look forward to more sessions with her and getting more help from her!

Work with me!
