Kristine has over 4 years of experience in the mental health field. 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 the Prepare/Enrich Certification. She has worked with individuals, couples and families in the community setting and private practice as well as with military veterans and their loved ones. She also has over 30 years of experience working with and helping individuals in the financial and medical fields from diverse populations other than in mental health settings. She works with individuals, couples and families to heal and improve the relationship with self and others in the midst of mental illness, trauma, grief and loss, sexuality issues, financial discords and life transitions through strengths-based and family systems psychotherapy approaches. Kristine considers optimal mental health can be achieved when one has mind-body-spirit balance. To attain this, she believes her role as a therapist is to empower her clients to learn from and accept the past, have hope and eagerness for the future and feel appreciation and well-being in the present, whatever that looks like for the client. She is a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, the Wisconsin Associate for Marriage and Family Therapy, and the Financial Therapy Association.
