About me

I am licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in Iowa with 6 years of professional work experience. My therapy style and approach draws influence from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, and mild depression. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I view us as a team working at finding solutions to the issues you bring to therapy as well as healing from past or present trauma. I will typically respond to messages in 24 hours after receiving them or in 48 hours if it's over the weekend. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Very open-minded and focused on providing therapy approaches that work best for me. Easy to talk to.

I have enjoyed my meetings with my therapist so far! She is a great listener, gives me time to think through my answers, and is so understanding.

I have had a great experience with Kristen. She is so kind, professional, and understanding. Having someone be able to validate the things I'm feeling and help me work through them and talk about them has been so helpful. She listens well and has a clear plan and path for me moving forward. I appreciate her knowledge base and also her ability to think outside the box and look for things outside what she already knows as well.
