Hello, I'm glad you're here! My name is Kris, and I'm a Mental Health Counselor and a Visual Artist. My background: Since 2017, I have been helping adults move forward through their anxiety, grief, codependency, self-esteem issues, relationship problems, and sexual trauma histories. I have provided counseling services through BetterHelp; my Wisconsin-based private practice; Gundersen Health System; and La Crosse County (WI) Mobile Crisis Unit. I’m a mixed-media artist, and my background in Studio Arts gives me unique insight into working with, and connecting with, those who identify as creative; visual thinking; abstract; spiritual; and/or out-of-the-box. Just to clarify, while I have a spiritual perspective, I do not offer Christian Counseling. My approach: My counseling approach is collaborative, empathic, and nonjudgmental. My strengths as a counselor are intuition, empathy, and unconditional positive regard for my clients. I use a solution-focused approach to counseling. What this means is that I work with clients to identify their problems, and work toward “solutions” to these problems. We work together to develop specific, measurable, and attainable therapeutic goals that focus on the here-and-now to create meaningful change. My counseling approach also has a strong focus mindfulness and whole-person wellness. I am passionate about helping clients mindfully focus on improving their wellness to build resilience and thrive amidst their current challenges. I experience both counseling and art-making as therapeutic, transformative processes that help us contact and express our inner worlds--our thoughts, emotions, and needs. These processes can help us increase self-compassion, develop new perspectives, and better-understand our selves. This clarity can help us develop the confidence and courage to make choices based on our values, so that our lives reflect who we are and what is most important to us. Training: I received my Masters degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (Winona State University) and Human Development with concentration in Spirituality and Creativity (Saint Mary’s University of MN). My undergraduate degrees are in Studio Art (University of MN-Duluth) and Visual Communications (Art Institute of Pittsburgh). I engage in ongoing training and clinical consultation to help ensure ethical, quality care. Personal: I’m a mother and an artist. I like flower gardening, swimming, painting, and dancing. I enjoy counseling and art-making as therapeutic, transformative processes.

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

Before seeing your Sturgeon Bay 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 Sturgeon Bay.

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 Sturgeon Bay 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 Sturgeon Bay 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 Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin 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.

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.
