Kristy Hemmele

(MA, LCPC)

About Me

Hello, my name is Kristy. I have been a licensed clinical professional counselor for over 15 years. Everyone has a story to tell. Everyone also has encountered struggle of some type.. I use primarily solution focused techniques and my faith to help individuals, couples and families find help and feel empowered.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes a great deal of courage to take that first step to reach out and ask for help when going through struggles and attempting to make life changes. I commend you for taking that step and I look forward to hearing your story.

I started here with a different counselor and Kristy has been better by far. If not for her, I would have cancelled altogether.

I have been working with Kristy Hemmele for a year on Betterhelp, I would give kristy over a million stars for all that she has done 4 me. She does her very, VERY best to get me in on the time that i have, if she can't she moves things around the best that she can to get me in. She works hard on letting u know that "YOU MATTER". I come to her with a lot of crap,but kristy lets me know that she will NOT throw u out in the deep end alone. Thank u Kristy & betterhelp.

Kristy has been very warm, kind and understanding. She has patiently helped me navigate this process. I was very nervous at first and almost didn’t start counseling. I felt glad I decided to seek help and followed through with it after just one session.

Written by K.A. on Nov 08, 2020 after counseling with Kristy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Kristy makes me feel like the most important person in the world. She will rearrange her schedule when she can to make sure I get absolutely everything I need when I need it. I always feel as though all the weight I’ve been carrying has been lifted after talking with her.

Written by K.A. on Sep 08, 2020 after counseling with Kristy for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Very thoughtful and doesn’t put me or my feelings in a box. I really like how she suggested what might be going on with me, not forcing me into a box but giving me the option to agree or disagree.

Written by N.A. on Aug 26, 2020 after counseling with Kristy for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Kristy was the perfect therapist for me. I am in remission from depression and anxiety and feel at this time I will stop counseling.
It is hard for me to do that because she has been a part of my life for several months.
Kristy did everything she could to answer my texts in a timely fashion and to
answer my urgent texts with “how can I help you”?
She challenged me and listened to my needs. I feel she was instrumental in helping me to have hope and stay on course. I am eternally grateful to her!
Thanks again, Kristy and to Betterhelp for offering online therapy services .

I can't say enough about the help Kristy has provided me and the better person she has helped me become.
She can be tough me on me when I need it but also prop me up when I'm down and out.
Her best quality in my opinion though, is quick responses on the Better Help messaging app. There are times I can really use some advice and support in between sessions and she's always there for me.
For that I can never thank her enough.

I went through three counselors on BetterHelp before finally meeting Kristy. She is wonderful! I feel so comfortable with her, she is very warm and easy to talk too! She works with me to understand my issues and gives me things to think about and worksheets that are relevant to what we’ve discussed in our sessions. I can tell she truly cares and it really helps me on my journey to better mental health.

What a joyful spirit Kristy has been to me over this past 30 days. She laughs, listens, and affirms my love for my husband. God bless you Kristy!

Written by L.A. on Apr 03, 2020 after counseling with Kristy for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Kristy has been incredibly supportive. This is my first time using Betterhelp and I was unsure at first, but the past two weeks with Kristy have been exactly what I have needed. She is quick to respond to my messages. Scheduling our sessions has been an absolute breeze. She checks in a day or two prior to our next session just to see how I am. I highly recommend Kristy Hemmele and this platform!
