About me

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 personal background consists of surviving domestic violence and narcissistic abuse. I have been providing individual counseling since 2012. My counseling 'style' consists of an empathetic and validating focus on the individual while also working to acknowledge the systematic oppression in our society and its impact on that client and the community at large. I am LGBTQIA+ and Gender Accepting and Affirming. I am a part of the LGBTQIA+ community as well. I am a neurodivergent person. I provide counseling from a secular based perspective, meaning that I do not practice with a religious influence of any kind. I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and perspectives.

I have been trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) 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 in my work. I find joy in assisting my clients with alleviating trauma symptoms, recognizing harmful family patterns and uncovering individual strengths. My "niche" is working with neurodivergent people who have experienced abuse to help them cultivate a sense of self and create inner safety. 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. This means that if you are on vacation in another state, we cannot begin counseling services until you are physically back in the state of Tennessee. BetterHelp is not a crisis platform or replacement for crisis services.

For Crisis in Tennessee: call 855-274-7471 or text “TN” to 741-741. If you are in need of housing and other immediate assistance, please reach out to your local county department for social services, or other community resources. Please keep this in mind when choosing me as your therapist.

She’s the best!

Written on Apr 10, 2024 after therapy with Kristin for 2 years and 3 months on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, anger management, coaching, and adhd

Kristen is a great listener but also very skilled at reflecting back truths that may not be apparent to you. She has a very empathetic manner, but is also helpful with practical implementation ideas if you desire them. She will meet you where you are and go alongside you for your journey. She’s made me feel understood and helped me understand myself better.

Written on Jan 17, 2024 after therapy with Kristin for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and self esteem

She is very understanding and easy to open up to. She also creates therapy that works best for me and is patient when trying to figure out what will work best for me

Written on Jan 02, 2024 after therapy with Kristin for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and adhd

I’ve gone through three different therapists on BetterHelp, and Kristin is by far the best I’ve come across. She is the first one I’ve encountered that has actually listened to me and challenged my way of thinking. Just in a few short sessions, I was able to talk about things that I’ve never talked about. She’s great at her job, and genuinely cares about what she’s doing. Talking to her does not feel like a therapy session, it feels like you’re talking to a friend. Look no further than Kristin.
