About me


Taking the first step into therapy can bring upon many different thoughts and emotions. I understand this which is why I believe a genuine trust and relationship with your therapist can bring healing and peace. Whether you are faced with something that occurred 2 days ago or 20 years ago, allow me to provide you with a safe place to share your struggles, your stories and your strengths.

While in therapy, we work collaboratively together. I will hear your voice, ask thought provoking questions, as well as provide my thoughts and suggestions to help you achieve the change you are seeking. We will explore and build new coping skills and strengthen the ones you already have.

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who have endured various forms of trauma. I also work with clients who struggle with a variety of concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief/loss, adjustment struggles and relationship struggles. Allow me to walk alongside you during this journey of growth and healing from past wounds.

Kristen helped me through my anxiety and depression in the past few month. She was really caring and easy to open to.

Kristen is an amazing therapist. She helped create a safe space for me to sit with and process things I have never felt worthy or safe enough to share. She is kind and goes at your pace. If you are considering therapy, I highly recommend her.

Over my time here on Betterhelp I went through a few counselors before finding Kristen. Even though we only worked for a short period of time I found great improvements of myself. I highly recommend her if it is your first time. She made the experience very easy.

Easy to open up to and open to your journey. She’s attentive, understanding and kind. She really listens and she’s able to open up channels to emotions that I haven’t been able to do on my own. She’s also been there for me when I’ve had “aha” or epiphany moments in my journey. She gets that I’m human and healing is complex.
She has also accommodated my ridiculous schedule.
