MEET KRISTEN

For many, the decision to work with a therapist can seem overwhelming. Whether you are looking for yourself or a family member, I strive to create an environment that makes the process a little less daunting. I enjoy working with children and young adults and have a particular passion for working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum and LGBTQ+ community. In my years as an RBT and Paraprofessional I grew to love this population and began looking for new ways to fill in some of the gaps I was seeing. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, self-esteem, emotional regulation, independent life skills, or other concerns, I provide a trusting relationship, in a judgement free atmosphere, to promote health and wellbeing. I am particularly interested in teaching young adults how to navigate the pitfalls of early dating relationships. Using a collaborative approach to therapy allows for the clients to be empowered and involved in their therapeutic process. I also have experience with in-home ABA as well as in the classroom environment and can provide collaboration with teaching staff and other clinicians when necessary.

Licensed LSW with graduate focus in Trauma Informed Care, Mental Health, and Medical Social Work

MEET NINA

"Easier" doesn't always mean "better". It can feel "easier" to distract ourselves. It can feel "easier" to run on autopilot. It can feel "easier" to ignore our emotions. But does it really make us feel "better"?

Bringing awareness to this is the first step. I can help with what's next. I work with adolescents and adults. My clients have come to me with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-harm, relationship issues, and life transitions. By using tools and techniques from mindfulness, DBT, SFBT, Hypnotherapy (Certified) and attachment theory as well as creating a supportive, non-judgmental space, I strive to find the best approach for each client. Let's work together to figure out what "better" is for you.
