Kristen earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology (MA), is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in South Carolina and Louisiana, and is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board for Certified Counselors.
As a counselor, Kristen helps people are in emotional pain. Many are dealing with career and/or relationship difficulties. Clients are often stressed, exhausted, and want to live happier, more fulfilling lives. As a professional, Kristen creates a safe and confidential environment for clients to honestly express how they feel with someone who cares for them and has the training to help them understand the cause of their pain.
Kristen is trained in a unique form of mental health therapy called Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. The New Orleans-Birmingham explains:
“Psychoanalytic psychotherapy looks to foster change by analyzing how past events and events from your early life may be affecting you in the present. This form of talk therapy will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental environment. A psychoanalyst will listen to your concerns and look for patterns or events that may be significant.”
Kristen has used this unique style of counseling to create powerful, life-changing experiences for hundreds of clients.
Here are one previous client’s words:
“I appreciated Kristen’s candor at the first meeting as she described her counseling approach and what to expect. I was not familiar with it as I had used cognitive behavioral therapy in in the past but quickly realized that her methods deal with root issues and produce lasting change when implemented. She provides a safe place to express any and all emotions, thoughts and needs. She encourages and pushes but always respects her client and their choices. More than anything, she empowered me to realize I that I knew how to take of myself – she connected the dots, so to speak, that I couldn’t see at first. She allowed me to access areas of hurt and pain that were affecting current relationships and see why I reacted the way I did in certain situations. I was finally able to get to the real need of the matter and see it clearly for what it was, accept my responsibility in it and release the others. Real freedom has been attained!”
