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 am LGBTQIA+ and Gender Accepting and Affirming. I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and perspectives. I do not provide counseling from a Christian based perspective. 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. 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.

I’ve been working with my counselor Kristin for a few months now and it has really helped me in my life. She’s been excellent with listening and understanding my concerns always supportive. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else!
Kristin is absolutely incredible at her job, and provides a comfortable space for sharing and vulnerability, and created an atmosphere encouraging growth and perspective.
Kristin is fantastic, I am new to therapy and she makes me feel at ease and heard. She provides incredible insight and perspective. I feel lucky I was matched with her.
Kristin has helped me overcome alot of problems. She is so understanding and helps by having me come at things from a different perspective. She honestly has made more open to putting myself first and saying its ok to not be ok. Love her positive attitude!
Kristin is very insightful, and has really helped me get to the root of some of my biggest issues. I highly recommend her!
I am so grateful for Kristins ability to truly see you. She listens and pinpoints the things you all want to work on well I’m glad I get a chance to work with her.
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.
