Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Tennessee, and I have been practicing therapy for the past 8 years. I have worked in community, residential, and outpatient settings. There is a wide variety of diagnoses I've worked with including Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, child and family issues, anger management, and substance abuse problems. Trauma and abuse are other areas in which I've treated. My counseling style is non-judgemental, empathetic, and compassionate. I use a holistic approach to help clients identify their strengths to help manage a balance of self-care, mindfulness, and well-being. I use several different evidenced based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. Using a client-centered approach, the focus is to identify and implement techniques to help clients manage their needs and goals. 'Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.'

Hello! My name is Kristin and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (with Mental Health Service Provider designation) in the state of Tennessee. I received my Master of Education degree, specializing in Mental Health Counseling, in 2013. My personal background consists of surviving domestic violence and narcissistic abuse. I have been providing individual counseling since 2012, with an empathic and validating focus on the individual. I am LGBTQIA+ and Gender Accepting and Affirming. I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and perspectives. I do not provide counseling from a Christian based perspective. I have been trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and many trauma informed techniques, which I pull from to create an eclectic therapy experience. Former clients have told me that I really listen, and am highly sensitive to their concerns, which are the highest compliments that I have ever received. I find joy in assisting my clients with alleviating trauma symptoms, recognizing harmful family patterns and uncovering individual strengths. My "niche" is working with neurodivergent people who have experienced narcissistic abuse to help them cultivate a sense of self and create inner safety. Therapy is at your pace since proper healing is not on a timeline. We will work together to uncover deep rooted trauma, staying sensitive to your healing needs. Per state licensing regulations, I am only able to practice in the state of Tennessee, with residents who physically reside in the state of Tennessee. This means that if you are on vacation in another state, we cannot begin counseling services until you are physically back in the state of Tennessee. BetterHelp is not a crisis platform or replacement for crisis services. For Crisis in Tennessee: call 855-274-7471 or text “TN” to 741-741. If you are in need of housing and other immediate assistance, please reach out to your local county department for social services, or other community resources. Please keep this in mind when choosing me as your therapist.

Welcome to counseling! I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in identifying and accomplishing your goals in a safe, supportive setting. I have 18 years counseling experience, have a BS in Human Development, a Master of Arts (MA) in Counseling from East Tennessee State University, and am licensed in North Carolina (LCMHC) and Tennessee (LPC-MHSP). I enjoy working with women and men, families, adolescents, all races, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations. My treatment approach is cognitive behavioral, acceptance/commitment, person-centered, solution-focused, and I have found that working with a client usually leads us to a therapeutic approach which can be satisfactory and successful for the client. Taking the first step to come to counseling can give you a wonderful opportunity to clarify what has meaning to you, what may be lacking in the present or is holding you back from a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Once we identify these issues, we can address them positively, learn to use coping skills that may have been absent or forgotten, and have the opportunity to feel relief and momentum toward an improved present and future. It’s my personal belief that everyone benefits from counseling, whether they may be suffering from (and want to lessen) symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma from the past or the present, grief, behavioral problems, parenting or relationship challenges, communication or self esteem issues. Working with a client in the counseling setting, I believe in the importance of building a caring, empathic, non-judgmental relationship by meeting a client where she/he is in life. I believe in the strength, courage, and resilience inherent in all people and that most people who seek out counseling come because they are temporarily stuck, not sick.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Winfield 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 Winfield 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 Winfield may not take health insurance, some in the state of Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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 Winfield, Tennessee 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 Winfield 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.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Winfield 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. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Winfield 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 Winfield 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 TN, providers may be booked out with clients.

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 Winfield 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 Winfield 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 Winfield, Tennessee 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.

Winfield 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.
