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, 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), 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. I find joy in assisting my clients with alleviating trauma symptoms, recognizing harmful family patterns and uncovering individual strengths. My "niche" is working with highly sensitive people who have experienced narcissistic 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.

Kristin listens very well to your concerns. She is compassionate and insightful, and I would recommend her to anyone who thinks they might want to talk to someone about their problems.

Written by S.H. on Jan 20, 2022 after therapy with Kristin for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and anger management

Kristin is wonderful at listening to your worries and helping you walk through them. I figured in therapy I would need someone to tell me how to change myself to get better but instead we just discuss the problem and Kristin guides me. She is helping me to learn that I have the ability to work through my problems on my own. I just needed to learn to ask myself questions. Kristin is phenomenal! Please give her a try.
