Ready to dive in? Let's do this!
In my journey as a therapist, I've walked alongside individuals facing unique challenges, from schizophrenia, to inmates and addicts in recovery. Before diving into this profession, I spent considerable time working with families and children, an experience that shaped my understanding of human dynamics in profound ways.
If you were to meet me, you'd find that I'm not your typical therapist. I'm a bit rough around the edges, grappling with my own battles against ADD, anxiety, and depression. Health issues have been a constant companion on my path, but they've only deepened my empathy and resilience.
When you step into my office, don't expect stiff suits and formalities. I'm all about creating a cozy, comfortable space where authenticity thrives. You'll likely find me in casual attire, mirroring the relaxed atmosphere I strive to cultivate.
Open-mindedness is at the core of my practice. Having embraced alternative lifestyles personally, I bring a non-judgmental perspective to the table. Whether you're exploring different facets of your identity or navigating unconventional relationship dynamics, know that you're safe to be yourself here.
My interests extend beyond the conventional realms of therapy. Gender, sexuality, and BDSM are areas I've delved into as both a student and a practitioner. This knowledge enriches my approach, ensuring that I can support clients from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
Above all, I'm a people person. Meeting new clients isn't just a part of my job; it's a joy. Witnessing your growth and transformation as you navigate life's complexities is what fuels my passion for this work.
If you're seeking a therapist who's as real as they come, I'm here for you. Let's embark on this journey together, one step at a time.
Warm regards, Kristin
