About Me

Hello! I am a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Iowa. After I obtained my Master's degree, I started my career at a community agency providing substance abuse counseling and problem gambling to adults. More recently, I have been working with young adults struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and stress management. My appoach as a therapist is very client centered; you will be directly involved in your therapeutic decisions. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy techniques as well as solution focused techniques during sessions. I highlight each of my client's strengths, discuss coping skills that worked in the past and brainstorm for new coping skills to move forward on making better life decisions.


  • Stress, Anxiety
  • Addictions

I also have experience in Relationship, Family, Trauma and abuse, Anger, Career, Depression

Years of Experience: 6

Kristy has been a great person to work with. She has listened to my issues and began a plan to address those issues. I believe that I have a long road to recovery, but I’m confident with Kristy’s guidance and knowledge that I can get there someday. This was my first step asking for help and I’m thankful Kristy was matched up with me.
