About Me

Samantha offers you a safe space where you can feel accepted for who you are without judgement. You’ll feel a strong sense of empathy and caring from her as you work as a collaborative, trusting team to set goals and overcome the challenges you’re facing.

Samantha can help clients address many issues, including those related to change and adjustment, emotions regulation, self-care, PTSD, family and other relationships, child/teen behavior, anxiety, depression, marriage, divorce, trauma, abuse, codependency, and faith. She uses techniques like active listening, empowerment, homework, practice activities, and mindfulness. Modalities she draws from include CBT, Person-Centered, Bruce Perry's NMT Model, and DBT.

With a Master’s degree in Counseling from Wichita State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Emporia State University, Samantha has worked as a therapist in several types of settings, including residential mental health. Additionally, she has experience working with LGBTQ and in Christian counseling (but works with people of all faiths).

Written on Jun 15, 2022 after therapy with Kristin for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, career difficulties, and adhd

Kristin is a great therapist! She has guided me to knowledge that can help both males and females better to understand what it means to love another person. whether that love is just as friends or a romantic relationship. Kristin, I thank you for suggesting the book of The Five Love Languages.

Work with me!
