Meet Kristen



We all have a story to tell and the need to be listened to.

I am a psychotherapist who helps individuals across the adult lifespan who are dedicated to their healing. Clients are encouraged to share their experience without judgement or censorship. In session, I am warm, attentive, and a good balance of gentle and a needed push. I do the deep dive into difficult emotions we often choose to, or have to, ignore in order to survive. I have been acknowledged for my authenticity in sessions, and have been told my humor is well placed and appreciated. While therapy is hard work, it is also a place to play. We will talk, we will feel, and we will likely laugh along the way.

My areas of expertise include childhood trauma and neglect, depression, issues with self-esteem and self-worth, and relational concerns. I am an anti-racist, body affirming, sex and sex work positive therapist. I have spent the last 12 years in a devout pursuit of understanding and healing trauma.

I have completed an intensive three year post-graduate Gestalt therapy training program and am a Certified Gestalt Therapist. I combine psychodynamic and Gestalt theory to provide a comprehensive healing of both past and present. While we talk about events, we will pay special attention to what is happening in your body in the here and now. Connecting the mind to the body, which are so often fragmented, is a crucial part of my treatment process. I also enjoy exploring and incorporating spirituality, into my practice for those who are interested, but it is not a requirement to work with me.
