    Kristi has been an amazing counselor for me in so many different things - personally, marriage, and professionally. Every appointment I take something from the session and put it to use. Would highly recommend Kristi to anyone struggling with any aspect of their life. Her guidance is spot on as you're working through an issue and she's always there with a listening and trusting ear!

    I was hesitant to seek counseling due to bad experiences with it from childhood. I am so glad I did and that I found Kristi ! She made me feel at ease right away and not only is a good listener but she speaks up and has helped me figure out my future goals and how to effectively deal with my difficult family. I can’t thank her enough !

    I absolutely love Kristi Smith. I'm glad we found her. I needed to find help for my son who is going thru aniexty, and some depression due to bullying at school, and life situations and he loves her and is comfortable with her as well. He can open up to her. She cares, listens, and understands.

    Kristi has been my therapist for over two years now and she does such an amazing job working with families, especially those grieving the loss of loved ones. I have referred several family members and friends to see Kristi and they have all loved her. 100% recommend!

    I met with Kristi for anxiety, PTSD and relationship issues related to an abusive past. She is an excellent therapist whose expertise and advise have been an immense help in helping me to move forward in life and to recognize, understand and work through my particular issues. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
