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.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. My pronouns are she/her. I am trained in somatic psychotherapy, and I believe that people are not good or bad even when they have some troubling or even harmful behavior. I believe that there is no wrong way to be a person in the world and view all behaviors and choices as a reflection and collection of what has built up inside of or is part of the person making the choice. As a therapist this is reflected in my ability to establish relationships with my clients from a place of curiosity and non-judgment. My therapeutic foundation rests largely on existentialism and feminist theory. The existential foundation includes the belief that we are responsible for ourselves in the world and that we are happier when we are able to find and create meaning in our lives. The feminist theory that is a part of my work means is that when I am working with a client, that we explore the power dynamics in relationships not only from how it feels but also in the context of a larger socio-cultural lens and social location such as context and awareness of privilege. My approach to therapy stems from an underlying belief that all people are worthy and that throughout our lives we internalize reactions from others in the world that make us question our value. Because of that, people often start to think that there is something "wrong" with the way that they think and feel. My approach includes the belief that all feelings and thoughts have a purpose and are not "wrong." This includes anxiety and depression. I am a great fit for individuals hoping to find out what the thoughts and feelings inside are trying to say. Healing starts with accepting who we are, not convincing ourselves that there is something wrong with who we are. I view therapy as a collaboration between therapist and client and expect my clients to bring their own questions to the work we do together. I am typically not a great fit, for someone expecting to be told what to do. I will not do that.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Holloway, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Holloway or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Holloway 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 Holloway 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 Holloway 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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?

Therapists in Holloway, Minnesota working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). 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. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Holloway above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Holloway helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Holloway therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist.

You can also try a Holloway 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 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.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Holloway therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in MN, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 56249 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Holloway 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Holloway 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Holloway, 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.

Holloway has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

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.
