Kristine is an active listener and really understands what I mean and what I say. I appreciate her kind words and when she checks in on me!

I've had a couple of therapist in the past however I find Kristine to be the best she's understanding and gives real practical advice. I feel much better after our sessions. Highly recommend Kristine.

Kristine has been awesome. In the beginning, I could tell she was giving me the "protocol" responses and therapy - but when I told her that I noticed it and asked for the hard truth, she took off the gloves and went to work with me. Just what I needed - a more relaxed, but focused working relationship now and she has been extremely helpful!

Calm and collected she helps me gather my thoughts and see in a more positive manner. Highly recommend!

The first counselor I feel truly cares about me and understands my goals. She listens and hears me and has given me a renewed hope is lost sight of.
