Meet Kristen

She/her/hers

Psychotherapist

I fiercely believe we all have a story to tell and a right to be listened to.

I am a psychotherapist who helps women across the adult lifespan recovering from depression, family of origin issues, relational concerns and trauma. 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 can do the deep dive into difficult emotions we often choose to, or have to, ignore in order to get by. 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. 

My areas of expertise include childhood trauma and neglect, depression, sexuality including kink and ethical non-monogamy, and relationship issues. I am an anti-racist, body affirming, sex and sex work positive therapist. 

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.
