About me

We all have experienced times when life seems challenging. Whether it be a period of transition, ongoing struggles with mental wellness or a loss that can seem overwhelming. Or maybe you are struggling with the current times, that can find us in a world that might not feel very stable or safe. Routines have been interrupted, financial stressors have been amplified, and health/livelihood are being questioned. You don’t have to go through these times alone. And in these moments, you might benefit by chatting with a counselor. And that’s where I come into play.

I am an experienced therapist that assists others that are wanting to change old patterns in order to create growth and change. I specialize in working with adults in the following areas: LGBTQ+, anxiety, depression, chronic medical conditions (to include HIV), grief/loss and trauma. I use a combination of skills and interventions to foster resiliency and empower clients to reach their individualized goals. I believe in a holistic approach (mind and body connection) and utilize mindfulness interventions to help clients be present and grounded. I believe it’s important to understand how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all interconnected.

Therapy is an authentic and secure connection between the client and therapist. It consists of a space of safety, respect and acceptance between both entities. The therapeutic process can consist of only a few sessions to address immediate concerns (or to get a tune-up as I call it) or it can be extended to address long standing patterns. The first (and sometimes hardest) step is to send me an email to initiate services. I look forward to working alongside you.

I’ve tried therapy a lot over the past 20 years and never connected with any therapist. I never had a break through, I never felt the benefits, I never saw improvement. My experience with my BetterHelp therapist is polar opposite. This is the first time in my life that I feel like I’m starting to understand how I uniquely process my own reality. Slowly but surely, I’m starting to recognize patterns that I fall prey to and am discovering I’m capable of rising above these challenges. It’s liberating. I highly recommend my therapist and I highly recommend BetterHelp.

Kristin has been the most incredible therapist I could have hoped for. She is timely, professional, empathetic, and overall just great at her job! I appreciate how LGBTQ friendly she is.

Kristin is a good listener! She helps me understand my issues and is very supportive and kind. I enjoy talking to her and she is not judgemental at all! I feel a lot more confident and I improved my self esteem.
