I know the kind of courage it takes to recognize being stuck and then to realize a shift is necessary. Not knowing what direction to head in is really hard and can be very scary. It's sad to realize that you are on a journey and maybe you're on this journey alone. The other important people in your life just don't see things the way you do and you can't find common ground. It's frightening to take that leap and wonder if you're going to be caught. It's painful to realize you've outgrown who you are and painful to grow into who you are becoming. It may feel like you're lost and it's very, very confusiong when you don't have a clear sense of direction but KNOW, absolutely KNOW that you've got to do something different. One of the greatest comforts my clients have reproted is that I have many years of practice reading road maps, the kind of road maps that will take you from here, where you are today to where you want to be, tomorrow, next week, next year. I love to explore new sites and find places of interest. When we begin to work together, it's easy. We start where you are today. I work with you to identify and clarify what is and has been so challenging. I'll be with you to uncover where you feel stuck. I'll help you dream and encourage you to create your vision. Then, I’ll help you set goals that match your desires and dreams. I’ll help you remember your destination – where you want to go. Then, together we’ll develop your own personalized road map for this journey of self-discovery, sort of like your own AAA Trip Tik. As you begin the journey into your greater self, I’ll be there every step of the way with you; you’ll never be alone. I have lots of navigation tools to move you from one point to the next. I have amazing strategies to shatter the roadblocks that have stopped you from moving forward in your life. I can help you get the life you never dreamed possible, the life you deserve. You are amazing. My job is to reflect that back to you, so you can see yourself as I see you; whole, perfect and complete.

I'm Kristin. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist- Master in the state of Vermont. I have worked as a therapist for 6 years, and as a clinician working with families for 15. I also teach at a local college. I have worked with and have experience in a range of areas, including depression, anxiety, trauma, family challenges, and working with people on the autism spectrum. Every person comes into therapy with different needs and preferences-- we will work together to make therapy the best it can be for you.

Psychodynamic therapy has a focus on interpretation of thoughts and emotions, so that you can leave understanding yourself better. Once we uncover your patterns, we can work together to develop insight and make meaningful change. The most important thing is our therapeutic relationship-- when you feel like you can trust me and connect with me, you will be more willing to do the work that lies ahead. Making the decision to seek help is a great first step. I look forward to supporting and encouraging you in making meaningful growth and change!

I encourage my clients to cultivate and maintain a constellation of people, places and things that promote interdependence. My adult clients tell me that I help them to see their situations from an new angle. Therapy is an opportunity to discover new ways of thinking about one or more situations. I understand how frightening this can be. I continue to learn from my clients in a community mental center. It is important that my clients give me feedback about their therapy experience. Building and practicing effective communication is key in my relationship with clients.

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a non-traditional therapist with a holistic approach to mental health. I am licensed in Georgia with more than 9 years of experience working with diverse populations. I would like to provide some information about myself. I am a little 'out there.' I have piercings, tattoos, and purple hair. I am a bit of a goth even now that I am looking at 50. I came to mental health services a little later than some. I was an English major when I first went to college out of high school. That did not work out very well. I love writing and the English language is beautiful so occasionally I use obscure words or references. If I ever say something that is not understood just tell me and I will rephrase. My second attempt at higher learning was when I was in the nursing program. I knew I wanted to make a difference and ease suffering but to be honest, I do not like to watch people die. I have and can, but I did not want to do it all the time. I was in my 30s when I started my program. I did an associate degree in psychology, a bachelor's degree in psychology and then a master's degree in mental health counseling all in one go. It was very stressful as I was also working at the time. I have worked a lot of jobs I did not like and have had some very interesting experiences. I have worked at Wal-Mart (twice) and did a stint as a grave digger (with a shovel). I have many hobbies and interests. My approach is eclectic because there are no one size fits all treatments. I am very open but believe in setting goals and having accountability. My role is to provide clients with tools to navigate their unique issues and concerns.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Barton 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.

Barton therapists 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 Barton 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 Barton 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 psychotherapist.

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

Before seeing your Barton 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 Barton.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Barton 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 Barton 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Barton, Vermont 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.

Barton 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
