Resident in Counseling

“You do not belong to the future or the past – you belong right here.” – Rupi Kaur

Kristin is a Resident in Counseling and provides individual counseling services in person and via telehealth through the Alexandria campus. She is a recent graduate of the Master of the Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from South University and received a Bachelor of the Arts in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University of South Carolina. 

Mostly pulling from a Cognitive Behavioral approach, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy techniques, Person-Centered Therapy, mindfulness, body movement, and meditative practice, Kristin utilizes an integrative approach to therapy in order to meet clients where they are. With a passion for working with youth and individuals who identify with the LGBTQIA+ community, Kristin has experience with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations, self-harm, grief and loss, trauma, ADHD, self-esteem, stress, and adjusting to life transitions. She believes that therapy is not one-size-fits-all and understands that what may work for one person may not work for another. Kristin strives to provide a safe, judgment-free, unique, and individualized space to cultivate positive self-talk, influence creative and loving self-care, meditative processes, and guidance towards uncovering your most authentic self!
