Hello my name is Kristin Rinehart. I am excited to offer counseling through BetterHelp because it gives access to counseling in different ways that traditional counseling does not. Reaching out for help for your health and wellness is so important and can be difficult to do for the first time. Good job for considering putting time into your self. Just a little about me: I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Otterbein College and Master of Social Work degree from The University of Pittsburgh. I have been a licensed independent social worker for 28 years. I am licensed in the state of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana. I am passionate about treating clients of all ages struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, stress management and life transitions. I find helping others achieve peace and happiness to be the most rewarding part of the social work profession. I have worked in settings such as community mental health, crisis residential treatment, crisis intervention, school based counseling and integrated behavioral health in a Federally Qualified Health Center.
My therapy style includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Time Line Therapy, Strength and Faith based approaches. I believe the most important aspect of a therapeutic relationship is for my clients to know they have someone on their team encouraging them to move beyond the past, live in the present while working toward reaching goals for the future.
I am available for messaging, live chat and phone appointments at this time. I prefer to schedule directly with my clients so they get the appointment day and time that works best for their schedule.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Grief, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Life Purpose, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Post-traumatic Stress, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

She was very personable and knows many different paths to advise in order to rely on self-care and putting me back on track with life when things were derailed and in a lot of flux.

I have only been doing this for a couple weeks. I have never done counseling before, and Kristin has made me feel so comfortable while easing me into the process. She is extremely professional and very personable. I look forward to our live chats. I have enjoyed every step. Thank you Kristin!
