Welcome. Congratulations on taking the first step toward living your best life. My name is Kristen White-Madsen and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California. I have over 11 years experience working first as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor and then as a therapist working with individual suffering from a wide array of concerns. I have worked with clients with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, as well as many different life transitions. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked in clinics, criminal justice settings, county mental health, and addiction.
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, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I tailor my approach to your needs. I believe you are the expert on your life and I am just there to empathetically guide you in your journey through life's ups and downs.
I am looking forward to working with you.
