My counseling style is empathetic, mindful, client-centered, and straightforward. I believe in treating everyone with respect and being sensitive to the needs of others.
I have extensive experience working with individuals coping with illness and/or disabilities and supporting people through loss and/or adjusting to different lifestyles. I am committed to helping people including parents, caregivers and professionals to mitigate burnout and achieve balance. I partner with my clients to achieve healthy lifestyles including anxiety and stress management, smoking cessation, and sleep hygiene.
It takes a great deal of courage to seek professional help and even more courage to implement change. If you are ready to take the next steps, I’d be honored to serve as a guide on the path you seek. Evening & weekend sessions available to meet your needs.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kristina Callender. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I think that Kristina is great! I love that she has a very non bias approach to her counseling practices and can give me actual tools to work my issues out in a healthy and proactive matter. I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate where we have gotten this far.
The moment I talked to Kristina, we connected. I feel like we both have the same personalities. She helps me work through my problems, and is a gray listener.
It’s nice to have someone who listens and can help
she is a good a listening to me. it has been a super positive experience for me to have to talk to each week.
I have been in and out of therapy for close to 15 years now and Kristina is by far the most understanding and helpful therapist I have ever had. Most others feel like they are just going through a step-by-step guide on how to help people, but Kristina actually listens to my concerns and works with me in a way that makes her feel like a supportive family member more than a paid professional. I cannot express how thankful I am for her for just being able to recognize my issues rather than trying to use some blanket questioning and generalized methods to offer advice. Shes an amazingly knowledgable and understanding individual with a plethora of wisdom to offer.
Thank you for understanding and for helping me
I have had such a good experience with Kristina. She consistently meets me where I am and is always providing support and ideas to accomplish my goals.
She's been very helpful and so easy to talk to
Kristina is a straightforward therapist who asks direct questions to get you to make the discoveries and connections you need. She doesn’t give you the answers, but helps guide you in a way that allows you to come up with the solutions which strengthens your ability to process.
Caring but blunt, just they way I like it!
I enjoyed working with Kristina - she’s matter-of-fact and has lots of good tips to provide. She’s a good listener and is not afraid to share her own stories too.
Kristina is attentive, responsive, and able to provide clarity and direction. She’s a valuable ally in developing practices and mindset for sustainable positive mental states.
I trust Christina. She has a good heart. She has good skills. She has been through what I am going through. I am not extremely verbose like my soon-to-be ex spouse so sometimes could use a little more facilitation at keeping the conversation going and avoiding dead air.
very helpful in our phone meetings, also really appreciate Krisitan's candor, refreshing/ honest answers and the ability to admit she doesn't have all the answers to my questions...
After only a couple sessions with Kristina, I feel optimistic we will be able to make progress in my search for my truth.
Kristina has given me lots of great advice and other books and pod cast to help with my current situation.
I love that she listens and then structures the conversation in a supportive way towards attainable goals and focus.
I was so scared and embarrassed and ashamed to have to ask for help. Although I haven't disclosed everything as of yet. I'm looking forward to sharing a little bit more about myself.
Kristina Callender's been an excellent match for my needs. She is flexible and a great listener.
