My name is Kristine and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the state of Minnesota and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Bachelor Social Worker (LBSW) and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) in the state of Hawaii. I received my Master of Arts degree in Addiction Counseling: Advanced Practice from the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies and I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. My current full time job is as a Substance Abuse Clinical Counselor working with male and female active duty military members. Previously, I worked for nearly 5 years at a recovery center for adult women with co-occurring disorders (a substance use disorder and mental health disorder). I truly enjoy working with people who are willing to put in the work to overcome life challenges so they can become their best self. I have worked with clients dealing with a variety of concerns such as anxiety, life transitions, substance use, grief/loss, self-esteem, stress management, depression, anger and emotion regulation. In all of my therapeutic relationships my goal is to help my clients feel supported, validated and empowered. I would describe my counseling style as a mixture of person-centered, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused while also incorporating motivational interviewing, relational-cultural and trauma-informed techniques. The main tenet in person-centered therapy that I wholeheartedly believe in is that we all have the ability within ourselves for healing, personal growth and self-actualization. I prioritize building and strengthening the therapeutic alliance with each client and serve as a guide on your life journey by providing insight, empathy, support and unconditional positive regard in a non-judgmental way. I meet each client where they are at and individualize care to meet your specific needs and goals. I am an animal lover. I rescued a dog and a cat years ago that have since made up my little family and are a very important part of my life. I love my family, music, crafts, nature, essential oils, outdoor activities, dancing and Springbok jigsaw puzzles. I look forward to working with you, getting to know you and helping you become your best self so you can meet your specific goals. I would be honored to be a part of your journey.

Greetings! I have been a licensed psychologist in Minnesota for over 30 years, and during that time I've worked in public schools, in higher education as a counselor educator, and doing individual counseling work. At the core of my work is a deep respect for the clients and students with whom I work, and a strong belief in people’s ability to grow and transform themselves when provided with the support they need. I am well-versed in a variety of counseling theories and techniques, but it really comes down to the way you would like your counseling experience to look and feel. Let's not worry about adhering to a certain theory. Rather, let's figure out what you want and need. And if this is your first counseling experience and you don't know what you want it to look like, no worries. We'll figure it out together. While each client may have a different counseling experience, if you are my client you can expect a few things. We will have a thorough conversation about what you would like to be different in your life and how counseling can help you get there. Our conversations will be mostly strengths-based, meaning we will focus more on finding solutions than immersing ourselves in problems. But sometimes people need to talk through their problems before moving forward, and if you need to talk difficult past experiences, or times you have been marginalized or discriminated against or otherwise mistreated, we will talk about that for as long as you need, and you can expect to feel strongly supported. If you have experienced trauma or loss, we will talk about that. If you come to a session and just need to vent to a caring listener, that is what will happen. But the overarching goal of our sessions will be to help you move forward and figure out a path to a more fulfilling life.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Deephaven area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Deephaven therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Deephaven due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Deephaven may not take health insurance, some in the state of Minnesota may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Minnesota you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy.

You can also try a Deephaven therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Deephaven therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Deephaven therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

A Deephaven therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Deephaven counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Deephaven.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Deephaven licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Deephaven, Minnesota can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
