Kristin's Approach to Counseling

Kristin leads with a personal touch, seeking to form a collaborative connection with others by normalizing the human experience of pain and suffering as something that is common to all of humanity. Joining with you on this common ground, Kristin validates, empowers, and encourages in a way that helps to facilitate healing in your life.

Kristin believes in focusing on strengths and giving proper emphasis to "what is right with you" instead of "what is wrong with you." She acknowledges your positive qualities, affirms what you are already doing well, and helps you apply these things to successfully problem-solve circumstances in your life. When you feel deeply discouraged, it can be difficult to climb out of the despair, see a different way, or make a change, but when you are aware of your positive qualities, skills, and strengths, you are more able to feel empowered to confront and resolve a difficult situation.

With training in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy, Kristin also gives significant consideration to the relationships in your life and how they influence the dynamics of both past and present experiences. In this way, Kristin doesn't only treat individuals, she also treats relationships. Some issues are best addressed in the context of marriage and family relationships, and Kristin may recommend these modalities of treatment for you.

Kristin has a holistic view that considers the entire person- body, mind, and spirit –with the perspective that addressing these aspects together provides the best and most effective treatment approach. Kristin views God as the ultimate source of our healing and specializes in a faith-integrated counseling experience for those who want that approach. However, you are not required to share the same faith or belief system that Kristin has; she is committed to meeting you wherever you are on your own journey as she encourages you towards the discovery of "something new" in your life.

"My life is so much better now --I've gotten job promotions and things with (my spouse)
are so much better. I should have done this a long time ago!"
               
"I was in one of the darkest periods of my life, and (Kristin) helped me find help with both advice and pharmacology that have turned things around for me. Her empathy and openness are the mark of a professional with a kind heart and good ear. I absolutely cannot recommend her highly enough."

"She is fantastic!"

Meet Dewey!
If you schedule in-person appointments, you will get to meet Dewey, Kristin's on-staff certified therapy dog. Dewey has earned the AKC recognized Canine Good Citizen certificate and a Therapy Dog Certificate awarded by the Springfield Alliance of Therapy Pets (with whom Kristin and Dewey are also members). Dewey loves all of his clients, who frequently comment that he is the highlight of their day. 
**If you have allergies to dogs or any other aversions to dogs, please be sure to discuss this with Kristin prior to scheduling any in-person appointments so that accommodations (or referrals to another provider, if necessary) can be made. Kristin also offers telehealth sessions for an allergy-safe alternative.

Kristin's Current and Future Focuses

Kristin has a special interests in interpersonal neurobiology, attachment wounding, and trauma, which has led her into further study and specialized training in these areas. Interpersonal Neurobiology is interested in how a person's brain, mind, and relationships interact and intersect. Attachment wounds can occur when emotional needs in childhood are not consistently met by caregivers.

Kristin is certified in Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing treatement (EMDR). EMDR
is an extensively researched psychotherapy approach that has been proven to aid in recovery from distressful and traumatic experiences. While completion of the first level of EMDR training qualifies a clinician to practice EMDR under an LPC license, more advanced training is required to become fully certified.
