Couldn't ask for better!
I've tried therapy a couple of times, but never have I been so satisfied with my experience as I have been with Kristine. She is kind, truly caring, and real. I originally sought out therapy with Kristine in order to work on bettering myself and gain more confidence in my relationships, but I've expanded our work to couples therapy as well. Through our time together, I've grown immensely, and although sometimes it's hard, she's helped me become a stronger woman. Kristine's style is warm and caring. Although she's not afraid to be blunt when necessary. She shares her own experiences which helps me feel like we have a real connection. It truly feels like I'm speaking with a good friend when I'm with her. Our sessions aren't just about me talking... she knows how to connect and make it worthwhile. She's available when I need a little extra help through the week, but she also acknowledges when she thinks I have a handle on my situation and don't need to come in just to come in. I appreciate that. It's not about filling her appointment book, she definitely has my best interest in mind. I am so happy that I've found Kristine, I couldn't imagine working with anyone else. If you need to talk to someone, I couldn't recommend better!

Help for a broken family
Over the past year our family has gone through the painful separation of my spouse and I. Kristine's counsel and guidance has been the key to our successful transition. I have learned so much about myself, my relationship with my spouse, and my relationships with my kids. In fact, my relationships with my kids have never been better. This is all thanks to Kristine and her approach to therapy. The improvements in my outlook were immediate, and she has given me the tools to move forward with my life in a positive and healthy way.

Wise counsel from someone who b
About a year and a half ago, my husband left me. I was devastated and worried about my three children, two elementary school age and one in college. I found Kristine and she has helped me and my children tremendously. She has helped me to discover things about myself and my past without dwelling on it. She has taught me that it is important to understand what has happened in order to learn from it. She has also helped me understand the process of grieving and allowing myself the time and grace of a period of recovery. She has been instrumental in helping my children process their feelings. Kristine has given wise counsel and she gently leads the conversations so that I discover feelings or things that I perhaps I need to change. Her counsel has helped with the healing process. But the thing that makes Kristine unique is her empathy. When I talk with her, I see in her eyes that she understands. I feel accepted and that my feelings are valid. I never quite understood how powerful that is until I starting counseling with her. I feel like she is a good friend as well as my counselor. I highly recommend Kristine!
