About Me

Hello! Welcome to the BetterHelp Community. My name is Kristen Schultz Tassiello, and I am a licensed clinical social worker, LCSW. I have more than 20 years experience working with adolescents and adults in a variety of mental health and educational settings. I believe that beginning therapy is a courageous endeavor, and I utilize a thoughtful, empathetic, and empowering approach to help clients uncover their strengths and resources to feel more connected to others. I offer trauma-informed, empowerment based treatment for clients struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, mood disorders, grief and loss, and life transitions. My clinical approach is psychodynamic and insight oriented.
I have a Masters of Social Work degree from Columbia University, and maintain my clinical social work licensure in the State of Connecticut. I am also trained in the Mindfulness-Based stress reduction technique at Yale University.
I look forward to working with you!

Written by L.A. on Feb 17, 2021 after counseling with Kristen for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I have been working with Kristen for about 2 weeks now and I am very pleased. She has asked me a lot of questions to get to know me before we speak live, which I greatly appreciate. By answering her questions and writing down my thoughts/feelings/experiences not only has it helped her to get to know me but has helped me therapeutically. Better Help did a fantastic job matching me with the kind of therapist I was looking for.

Kristen does an excellent job at helping me. I’m definitely making progress because of her and I highly recommend her expertise.
