About me

Do you feel lost in a situation? Struggling to have satisfying relationships? At the cross roads and do not know which way to turn?
Ever wake up with the mood "why bother" and go back to sleep? Are you finding yourself taken advantage of, often? Do you find it a challenge to move on from old trauma? Are your thoughts racing so quickly making it impossible to get things done? Do you avoid situations because anxiety impacts you physically?

Life changes can feel overwhelming, it helps to have an objective confidant to vent to and sometimes to hear constructive feedback.
We all have blocks in our life as we strive to attain a positive peaceful energy flow. My services are designed to identify, heal, plan, focus and execute removing those blocks while attaining goals.

I often use humor in an appropriate manner to increase engagement and lighten conversation making things feel more manageable.

We will locate the source of discomfort and find ways to manage to overcome obstacles and challenges.

If you are serious and in a safe place to work on triggers, take on new perspectives and achieve wellness; I am the therapist for you.

I look forward to meeting you!

All the best always,

She is genuinely one in a million. I’ve had so many therapists that just didn’t get me and from the first session I felt seen in a whole new way. She’s helped me overcome so much anxiety and given me ways to manage my OCD which have given me my life and peace back. So, so grateful for her she really cares and is incredible at her job. Would recommend to anyone.

Kristin is sharp, empathetic, validating and so kind. She really goes above and beyond!! She's the therapist I needed to have!! She's action oriented and helps me so much when I fail to identify the words myself (scripts to practice). She cares! I'm beyond grateful of the impact she's had in my life, the depth of insights she has brought, and most importantly, the changes she was able to instill in me to make me realize I love me, I deserve better, and I choose me!! She's also very well researched and shared knowledge I could not "google" myself, something I was really looking for. She's made such an impact so far in a short few months, I look forward to having a fulfilled life with the tools she imparts. You'll be so lucky if you get to cross paths with her! Life changing truly.

Kristin's willingness to explain and share insights has been instrumental in enhancing my understanding of myself and improving my relationship with the world around me. Her guidance and expertise have played a crucial role in my ongoing journey of self-discovery, personal improvement, relationship and bonding with my loved ones.

I am truly grateful to have come across Kristin and feel fortunate to continue on the path of self-discovery and growth with her by my side. Her compassionate and insightful approach has made a significant positive impact on my life, and I look forward to the continued progress and transformation that our sessions bring.

Thank you, Kristin, for your dedication, empathy, and invaluable support.

She is authentic, empathetic, warm, and smart, witty, has a deep bank of knowledge to draw from, is skilled with a variety of approaches, and is fun to work with even with difficult subject matter. A really good match for me, a person with a little trauma and anxiety, she makes me feel safe to be honest with and gives me interesting aha moments to think about, plus creative strategies for implementing change.
