More About Kristin – MA, LPCC, CDCA

Kristin received her Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary.  She is a firm believer in the positive changes that can be experienced as a result of fully processing trauma, change, or a major life crisis.  She enjoys helping people learn how to cope despite losses and discover areas of personal growth and healing.

Kristin is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to treat trauma, stress and anxiety.  Raised in a multi-cultural family, and having lived and worked overseas, Kristin enjoys working with the variety of personalities as well as people from various cultures.

Prior to counseling, Kristin spent 12 years as a small business owner and uses that knowledge to work with individuals who are challenged to balance work, family and self-care.  Her patient nature and desire to ensure that each person feels heard and respected motivates her to create an environment of encouragement and hope where individuals and families can reach their full potential.
