First and foremost, I am very happy that you have chosen Betterhelp and I look forward to being able to help you through this trying time in your life. I go by Nicole. Kristina is my first name and what is on my license so that is what is listed. I am a holistic counselor who focuses on all aspects of the body and mind and what is necessary to maintain a balance there. I've been in the counseling field for 15 years and I have been a licensed counselor for the past 7 years. I have worked in all aspects of the counseling field including inpatient treatment centers, Assertive Community treatment teams, and Community Health as well as in Primary Care Medical Offices and now Private Practice. I believe that each of these steps in my career built a small part of what I now use to make sure that I am treating the whole person rather than just pieces of a person when they walk in my door.
I have been nominated for NC Counselor of the year on 2016 and 2017 and was voted one of Brunswick County Top 10 Young Professionals in 2016. I am the leading referral source for many local attorney and judges due to my history in the course system in high conflict divorce. I am currently a qualified expert witness for North Carolina District and Superior Courts. I use different approaches tailored to the individual to assist them in meeting their goals on therapy while maintaining a comfortable relaxed setting to do so.

Kristina is the best counselor I've ever had. She listens and respects me on a level I've never received from a counselor, and she makes sure that I am aware that I am a priority and important.
She is very supportive and for the first time I like talking with my therapist.
She is very good. Kristina always turns up to sessions and always checks up on me. Very understanding and always honest. She also makes sure you get as much help as possible as well.
I felt really relieved and better when she was checking up on me when I did not feel like talking. She is very understanding and caring, yet still makes me realize that the way of my thinking is chocking me when I should think positively. Thank you
