Kristy is the best therapist choice done.
I am seeing Kristy since February 2022, after we got known, got my diagnost. We have done some EMDR successfully tackled the main issue that drove me to seek her kind of help. I waited for an openning with Kristy for months. The waiting worthed. She is a professional and compationed person. I still working with her. Yes English is not my fluent but Kristy is extremely flexible with my broken english. Thanks Kristy for the help.

Thank you Kristy!
I worked with Kristy for about 3 months and we made immense progress in a short amount of time. I have had many counselors/therapists before and Kristy is the first who I felt really heard me and gave me truly valuable tools to move throughout my days and life. We did EMDR after Kristy got to know me and my background better and I highly recommend it. Kristy helped me to find my peace in myself and see that the tools have been within me all along.

Kristi is truly amazing and I recommend anyone looking to help reduce their anxiety or triggers related to PTSD to make an appointment with her. Our visits were educational, informational & made me feel appreciated and safe. I felt comfortable sharing my past trauma and my EMDR sessions have greatly reduced my typical stress levels, anxiety and fears in a matter of weeks after finishing our sessions. The way I’ve reframed my thoughts in a matter of months astounds me. I’m really glad I met her, the quality of my life has improved tremendously and I’m very grateful for her expertise.

I worked with Kristy to help me overcome my childhood sexual abuse trauma. She is a no BS therapist and will challenge you when you try to give any excuses that aren't valid. I had been seeing therapists for years but none of them specialized in trauma. With Kristy, we did CBT then EMDR and it has helped me more than I could have ever imagined. I would highly recommend her to help you with any past trauma.

DO NOT SEE THIS THERAPIST. Do NOT set an appointment with Kristy! Unprofessional, while lacking the ethical standards for therapy. She changed the appointement 3 times! On the third re-set appointment, she sends a TEXT stating she may have to cancel. After driving 45 minutes to her office, she shows up late. To top it off, she had me upload all my insurance documentation and confirmed she received but after I waited for her to arrive, she then tells me she does NOT accept my insurance. SHE IS a FLAKE! DO NOT SEE THIS THERAPIST Shame on you!

Kristy worked with me to help me deal with some anxiety and depression, primarily stemming from my work, but also due to both the pandemic and some things that I had been carrying around with me for much longer than I realized. Kristy was an excellent partner for the journey through these woods -- she was empathetic, sympathetic, and incredibly receptive, while also capable of being firm with me when I needed it. With her help, I managed to work through some very long-standing issues, and as a result, am in a much better place mentally and emotionally. Over the course of six months, we worked through traditional therapy augmented with EMDR treatment to revisit significant memories and reframe my internalized understanding of those pivotal moments. With time, work, and Kristy's help, I've been able to shake off numerous doubts and insecurities that have plagued me for a very long time. I would have no hesitation to recommend her services to anyone looking to do the same.

Kristy was amazing! In just a couple sessions I noticed a difference in my anxiety levels. Before, I could never leave the house without sever panic attacks. Kristy gave me the tools and confidence to leave the house. Now a couple months later I can go out without fear.

Kristy is a true healer and I will be forever grateful for her services. She helped me to process via EMDR some painful memories from my childhood that were on a continuous loop in my mind for nearly 18 years. Before therapy: even the shear thought of my most painful childhood memories would instantly bring tears to my eyes and my physical body would start to respond (increased heart rate, shallow breath, chest ache, etc). Post therapy: none of those responses occur. Instead I now have healthy, neutral thoughts about this memory. I also have more confidence and discovered inner peace and power. Kristy has a safe, peaceful and nurturing approach to her therapeutic style, while calling you out on your BS at all the right times.

Kristy earned my respect in a matter of 5 minutes. She is very good at looking at the patient and calling out what needs to be worked on. The method of C.B.T. and EMDR therapy with Kristy has changed my life for the better. She challenged me to think in different ways. This awakening of open thinking has served me beyond my expectations, in a good way. Thank you Kristy, for your help, experience and training.

Kristy is a kind, no nonsense person, which is exactly what I needed when looking for a counselor. I'd recommend her to anyone in a heart beat as she is great at hearing what I am trying to say even when I have trouble vocalizing my feelings. She presented me with great tools for continued growth and walked me through step by step so that I feel confident utilizing them on my own. Overall, she's a fantastic person and an amazing counselor.
