My commitment to you is to provide a judgement free, safe and honest place to process your emotions, feelings and experiences.
As we navigate through life, it is not uncommon to be faced with difficulties that can be hard to get through alone. Our family and friends may not understand us, or at times they may be the ones causing or contributing to the issues, sometimes without even knowing. Help is available. As life brings us challenges, whether they be with career, interpersonal relationships, stress, anxiety, struggles regarding self-esteem and decision making, life changes and growth- it can be extremely helpful to have someone there for you to help guide you through this process.
I am committed to helping you achieve overall wellness in your life. To assist you in prioritizing your concerns and issues in a judgement free, honest and kind environment. I will provide support, insight and feedback as you process through your feelings and strive for your personal growth and clarity.

Kristine is absolutely fantastic! I am comfortable enough to talk to her without feeling like I'm being too much or that she's being dismissive in any way. She genuinely cares enough to pay attention!
Kristine is very understanding, and has an incredible way of reiterating and breaking down certain emotions, life changes, and struggles along with healthy ways of dealing with them. She is very interactive, and often times uses strategies to help me look at things in a different light or aspect. She is very genuine and caring, which is a great support. Overall she is amazing.
Awesome, understanding counselor! Helps me recognize thought patterns that I could change in order to help myself.
My experience with BetterHelp and Kristine have been through words. There are no other cues, facial grimaces, acknowledgment of tears or frustration, no obvious behaviors or vocal communication and yet Kristine really see's though the words to see me as if I were right in front of her. She is kind, so patient, and supportive. Her responses are thorough, professional, and prompt. I highly recommend Kristine and feel so fortunate that she was matched to me.
Kristine has helped me through a very challenging relationship situation. She is patient, thoughtful and thorough, and manages to balance encouragement with challenge to explore new perspectives. Kristine helps me draw conclusions by guiding me through introspection and I am so grateful to her for her help!
It's so nice to talk to Kristine and just have someone to talk to about things. She is so kind and her communications are very organized. She is very thorough and I really appreciate her insights. Glad I found this site. It was really hard for me to take off work to see a local counselor. Thanks, Kristine :)
I have been working with Kristine for a couple/few weeks now. She has adeptly pointed out things about myself (positive) that I simply did not see. This is pretty motivating for me. She is also very responsive to all my needs that I express in my messages.
Suffering from some of the worst anxiety attacks, I desperately seeked helped and Kristine definitely gave me that help and support. She is very thorough and responds and reads every single part of what you write to her.
Kristine so far has been very helpful in giving me a different perspective - and sometimes even the same perspective, but in a different light that helps me understand myself a bit better. She is very patient and thoughtful with her answers as well, even though sometimes I can only imagine how overwhelming all my messages are! Thank you!
Kristine is very thorough and compassionate. She has provided me with a perspective I have never considered before. I love that she is removed from the situation but still caring and concerned about my wellbeing. Kristine also takes the time to write extremely thorough responses and she picks up on even the minute details I include in mine. Sometimes she analyzes a situation and provides me with amazing insight that quite frankly, blows my mind!
