About me

I am a holistic counselor who focuses on a aspects of the body and mind and what is necessary to maintain a balance there. I've been in the counseling field for 15 years and I have been a licensed counselor for the past 7 years. I have worked in all aspects of the counseling field including inpatient treatment centers, Assertive Community treatment teams, and Community Health as well as in Primary Care Medical Offices and now Private Practice. I believe that each of these steps in my career built a small part of what I now use to make sure that I am treating the whole person rather than just pieces of a person when they walk in my door. This idea is crucial when working with couples. I work with couples to find who they are as individuals and what they bring to their relationship. We focus on several important aspects of relationships, boundaries, conflict resolution, intimacy, and friendship.
I have been nominated for NC Counselor of the year on 2016 and 2017 and was voted on of Brunswick County Top 10 Young Professionals in 2016. I use different approaches tailored to the individual to assist them on meeting their goals on therapy whole maintaining a comfortable relaxed setting to do so.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kristina Ellen. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.
