I am so appreciative and grateful of having Kristi as my counselor. She follows up, checks in, and approaches things in a caring way that challenged me, but helped me to understand things I couldn’t see on my own. She pointed me in the right direction when she recognized it was time for me to move towards my next steps in therapy. Very resourceful and flexible when I needed to connect with her. I will miss our chats, she’s the best.

Kristi is an amazing counselor. She communicates clearly and sets realistic expectations. She is perceptive and tailors her time and techniques to the individual so you feel seen and heard. She is an excellent listener and is able to synthesize my experiences and ask questions that push me to work towards growth. It has only been two weeks into working with her and I appreciate her warmth, humor, empathy, honesty and growth inspiring nudge.

Kristi is great at listening and providing practical tools. She helps focus on my goals and I feel safe to share my issues without feeling judged or made to feel like my concerns aren't valid. She also makes sure to check in and is very accessible. I didn't know what to expect with counselling but this has been a great counselling experience and I feel hopeful that I can make healthy changes in my life.
