Hello! My name is Kristin, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of North Carolina with over six years of experience providing therapy services. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: individual and group outpatient therapy, intensive outpatient therapy with community-based interventions, and treatment teams serving individuals with co-occurring disorders. I currently also serve as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS). I graduated from the University of North Carolina in Charlotte in 2013 with my MA in Counseling and have enjoyed working with a variety of individuals since.
My approach to therapy is client-centered, trauma-informed and humanistic: I believe each individual has their own unique set of strengths, abilities, and experiences which are equally valuable. I also believe that each individual deserves a safe and non-judgmental space to explore ideas about themselves and how they fit in the world (unconditional positive regard). My hope in working with you is that I can support you through your own process of self-discovery and improved self-efficacy (knowing you are capable of healing and working towards your goals).
My therapeutic style draws from several different treatment modalities, which I use interchangeably to meet your needs. These include Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. Each of these modalities offers strategies we can use together to help you identify your own personal values, hope and motivation, as well as assist you in learning ways to challenge the inner beliefs and dialogue that may be acting as barriers to your self-esteem and confidence.
Let me know if you have any questions. Finding a counselor you feel connected with is important.

Kristin is a very kind and empathetic person who jumped right into all my concerns and reasons for joining counseling. She gives me space to explore the root cause of issues while gently nudging me in the right direction. She is very responsive in between appointments which is helpful in navigating a productive week of working on things we talked about. I really appreciate her approach and knowledge.
She is amazing! I never thought I could receive so much help from someone. My life is changing for the better after just a month of talking to her. I really can’t say enough about Kristin!
Kristin is incredibly insightful and kind. She is very good at what she does. I would recommend her to anyone.
