- Kristin's Therapy
First, let me acknowledge and admire your courage in taking the first step in your personal healing journey.
I understand that making the initial call, and attending the first therapy session, can be a frightening prospect. Knowing this, my primary objective is that you leave your first session feeling understood, accepted and validated.
I am a firm believer that my ability to help you feel emotionally safe is key to a successful therapeutic relationship.
I know it is vital to your success to talk openly without feeling judged. I also understand that for people to make lasting change they need to be motivated out of love, not fear.
Having been in practice for over 15 years, I have extensive experience working with a wide variety of individuals and issues. I have extensive experience in intake interviewing and assessments for various needs.
