Kristin has an innate ability to set her clients at ease and provides a nurturing space to explore and heal any issues her clients are encountering.
Kristin works with each client, couple, and family to examine biological, social, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional aspects and the pervasive thought processes keep many people “stuck.” She understands that all these parts of ourselves interact for the well-being or detriment of each of us. Kristin will work with you to explore the choices, assumptions, and expectations that may be affecting you positively or negatively. She will provide a framework to challenging and possibly changing these aspects in order to achieve success and happiness. Kristin believes every individual has within them the tools needed to resolve their own difficulties, and she wants to help each client find those tools within themselves.

She also has significant experience with self esteem, history of abuse, bipolar, relationship violence, and substance abuse issues, among others.
