Working with Kristi has been amazing. She has giving me insightful ideas for solving the challenges I have been facing. She has helped to ground me amid chaos of life. She is relatable and down to earth and I felt safe and accepted when working with her. I would highly recommend her.

We haven’t had many sessions to date, but Kristi made me feel comfortable from day 1. She was easy to talk to, understanding, and kind. I really look forward to our future sessions!

She’s easy to talk with and has a calm, receptive vibe. I don’t feel that distancing “wall of professionalism” that I’ve experienced with therapists in the past. I don’t feel analyzed or judged, but listened to.

Work with me!
