Kristine has been working in the mental health field since 2015. She has a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Edgewood College and is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). She has also achieved the Pragmatic/Experiential Method for Improving Relationships Certification and is trained in Brainspotting, a focused treatment that helps identify, process, and release core neurophysiological sources of various symptoms. She integrates these approaches with Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), psychodynamic, family systems and other evidence-based approaches.
Kristine sees clients with a wide variety of presenting issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, complicated grief, relationship struggles, life transitions and spiritual exploration. She especially is interested in the phenomenon of post-traumatic growth, the positive psychological change that can be experienced after a life crisis or traumatic event.
Kristine has worked in private practice, the community setting, with military veterans and has over 30 years of experience working with diverse populations in the medical and financial fields apart from mental health settings. Kristine considers optimal mental health can be achieved when one has mind-body-spirit balance. She works with individuals, couples and families and considers it a privilege to help heal and improve the relationship with themselves and others.
