I am an independent social worker licensed in Ohio with over 15 years of counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD and grief and loss. I also have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
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, solution-focused, and client centered therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first step 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 has been a phenomenal asset to my life. She always makes me feel safe and validated when I’ve struggled to open up to others in the past. The first couple of weeks I was nervous and scared and didn’t want to really talk but pushed through and I credit her with a warm, welcoming environment. She has great energy and has been a tremendous help for me. Would recommend over and over again.
