I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of New Jersey, with over 15 years of experience working as a counselor, behavior modification and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, motivational issues and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have counseled many children, families and individuals in a variety of settings.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, supportive and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Kristen is awesome!! She is so attentive and always responds with thoughtful, reflective, and compassionate ways that it is so nice being able to chat with her!
Kristen has been so wonderful she’s so accepting and easy to open up to
Kristen is a great counselor. She always keeps it real with me when I'm indulging myself and is so supportive in my growth journey. I'm never afraid to be completely honest because I know she is too.
Kristen was highly professional and helped me to get through a difficult time in my life. Kristen helped me to feel comfortable and open during counseling and did not judge me. I am grateful for her counseling.
Helps me focus
Challenges me to think clearly
I was nervous at first to even download the app but it has helped greatly. Kristen listens and responds without judgement, I’m getting comfortable with the idea that I’m sharing intimate details about my life with a “stranger”. Because she feels less like a threat and more like a knowledgeable friend
