Hello! My name is Kristin and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (with Mental Health Service Provider designation) in the state of Tennessee. I received my Master of Education degree, specializing in Mental Health Counseling, in 2013. My own personal background consists of surviving domestic violence and narcissistic abuse, and freeing myself from the chains of trauma (with an amazing therapist as my guide). I have been providing individual counseling since 2012, with an empathic and validating focus on the individual. I have been trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and many trauma informed techniques, which I pull from to create an eclectic therapy experience. Former clients have told me that I really listen, and am highly sensitive to their concerns, which are the highest compliments that I have ever received. I find joy in assisting my clients with alleviating trauma symptoms, recognizing harmful family patterns and promoting individual strengths that no one else sees. Therapy is at your pace since proper healing is not on a timeline. We will work together to uncover deep rooted trauma, staying sensitive to your healing needs.
(Per state licensing regulations, I am only able to practice in the state of Tennessee, with residents who physically reside in the state of Tennessee. Please keep this in mind when choosing me as your therapist).

Kristin and I haven't been talking long but she makes it easy to just talk about issues in my life.
Kristin is so kind, thoughtful, and accurate. I was hesitant to start over with a new counselor after a negative experience, but I am so glad I did.
