Welcome to my profile. My name is Kristen and I am a licensed clinical social worker. As a medical social worker for 12 years I have been provided with experience in older adults issues, caregiver challenges, unanticipated health event crisis, isolation, depression, anxiety and drug/alcohol addiction.
My affirmation statement is "This Universe is infinite in potential and therefore so are we". It has been my experience that the therapeutic counseling process is crucial in recognizing our own infinite potential, making changes that no longer serve a healthy purpose in our lives and move us in a direction towards peace and serenity.
I have had the pleasure of witnessing the great efforts my clients make towards actualizing their goals and create happiness in their lives. I believe that we are all in the process of soul retrieval and it is my pleasure to work with individuals that are willing to take that journey.

Kristen is the best therapist I've ever dealt with. She uses her sense of understanding to send activities that have opened my eyes to issues I haven't been able to solve until now. Highly recommend.
