Hello, my name is Kristin and I have over 22 years experience working in the mental health field. Over the years I have worked in a variety of settings including a community mental health agency, a psychiatric hospital, an outpatient clinic, and also providing therapy in county jails. This experience has enable me to work with a broad range and intensity of clinical issues. I have the most experience working with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship issues, and addictions. My counseling style is warm, interactive and encouraging. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, person-centered and psychodynamic therapy. We will work together as a team to identify your treatment goals and objectives and I will support you on your path to positive change. I believe the therapeutic relationship is really the key to a successful counseling experience.
I have participated in treatment myself in the past to navigate some of life challenges, so I can appreciate the fact that reaching out for help can be a challenge. Unfortunately, there is still so much stigma around having mental health issues and the process for getting help can be overwhelming and intimidating. However, I also know from experience how much life can change for the better when you find support and take steps towards taking care of yourself!
I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I applaud you for taking this first step in reaching out for help to build a better life for yourself.
I look forward to working with you!

Kristin and I spoke for around 6 months and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She was incredibly good at making me feel comfortable with the entire process, as well as knowing when to joke around versus being serious. She always was happy to listen and was super thoughtful if any scheduling adjustments or unforeseen issues popped up. We worked through many issues that I initially felt I would never be able to speak with anyone about, but through her help, I managed and have worked through a lot. In the future, should I need more therapy, I will happily return to her! Thanks so much for all your help Kristin!
Kristin is an amazing counselor who is easy to talk to and tries her best to understand and sympathize situations she may not fully understand. Our sessions is usual a highlight of my week.
