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 have been with Kristy for 2 and a half months now. I just recently went through a tough break up with my boyfriend of 7 years. Kristy has really helped me feel valid about my feelings and has helped me set boundaries. I go to Kristy if ever a situation with him comes up and she’s always there to make me feel important. She makes me feel like I’m not alone in my thoughts. Not only does she ask about that situation, she asks me about my work/school life as well. One thing I love about having Kristy as my therapist is that she will respond to my messages as soon as she can. She’s very active on BetterHelp and will make sure she can help out. She tries to accommodate to you as much as she can.
Kristy is my first therapist I’ve had and I love working with her!

Kristy has helped me through many difficult times. She is very flexible with scheduling and very responsive to messages. She makes even my biggest problems seem manageable. I always feel better after our sessions. She is an amazing person and you can tell she truly cares.
