About me

I truly respect your decision to seek couple's counseling at this time. Facing relationship, intimacy and couple's issues head-on is how they get resolved or healed. I know the right fit between therapist and a couple is imperative. My approach is to treat you with absolute, unconditional positive regard and respect. I will not be on "one" side and both people will feel heard and understood. I am only "on the side" of the relationship and with helping you heal what is hurting. Respect is so important. I will treat both of you with the utmost respect.
My therapeutic style, mindfulness. and solutions focused. The approach I use with couples is guided by what feels right in the session and not limited to one-style-fits-all. I see the goal as working with you on what you came to address and giving you tools for that, while helping you feel, safe, connected and close to each other.
I may give you homework to do between each session if that works for you.

My husband and I have been working with Kristy for 2 months now. She is very compassionate and empathetic to your situation. Through video and text chats Kristy helped my husband and I save our marriage. We were in a truly dark place and she helped us see the light through homework and well needed therapy. She doesn’t take sides and call you out when you are messing up. That’s why we love her. She has become an integrated part of our family. I could go on and on about how great Kristy is. I would highly recommend her over and over again. Thank you Kristy for everything !!! We love you!!!
