I am Licensed Professional Counselor and Board approved supervisor in Missouri with over12 years of professional work experience. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, humanistic, psychotherapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I use many counseling tools to help people with stress and anxiety, panic disorder, depression, personality disorders, attention and attachment disorders, addictions, as well as struggles with coping with various life changes and often trauma.
I also have experience working with compassion fatigue, chronic disease management and empowering people to better manage their life to obtain their life goals.
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and taking the first steps towards a change can be both scary, stressful, and exciting. I am here to support & empower you in your journey while finding and embracing the connections in your life that are not helping you reach your goals.
Together we can move you in the direction and path that you want to be on. Improving your coping skills and response patterns to help you live the life you are meant to live. ☺️☺️

Kristine has been so good for me! She’s a great listener and is skilled at helping dive into root causes and ways to heal those. She keeps me accountable on what I need to do to get better and is very responsive when I have questions or concerns about my progress.
