About Me

I have spent 12+ years of my career providing social work services in the school setting primarily in Illinois. I have worked with students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both Florida and Illinois. Since residing in Florida, I have provided psychotherapy to children, teens, and adults. Over the years, I have worked with students and adults with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, ADHD, drug and alcohol dependence, grief and loss, and Bi-Polar Disorder. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, humanistic, and psychodynamic therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She actually listens to what your problems are with no judgement and makes you comfortable to talk about how you really feel. She’s amazing!

I have had many sessions with Kristen and it has definitely helped me more than I ever thought it would. I used to struggle with my confidence and had relationship issues that immensely affected my life. She has helped me learn so many strategies and ways of thinking to where I can honestly say I love myself, my relationship with my family and my boyfriend has grown, and I no longer have the deteriorating levels of anxiety, depression, and self image issues that used to surround me in my past.
She makes it so comfortable to talk with her that I feel I can share anything and everything good or bad that has happened in my week.

She truly is here to lift you up and help you find that best image of yourself!

I would strongly recommend her to someone who really just needs help in finding their way again!

Love every single session I have with her and will be continuing with her!!

Thank you so much for everything Kristen!!!

Kristen’s insights have been incredibly thoughtful and she’s brought so much clarity and relief to me and my partners relationship. We’re so thankful for her.

Kristen has been great for my partner and me. She is able to help us sort out our thoughts and patterns and how they affect the other. My partner and I have made immense progress in our relationship in just a few sessions with her. I feel heard and validated by her. I would highly recommend her as a therapist.

I have only had one virtual visit so far but that went well and I was given tools to help with my issues. Kristen has been checking in regularly to see if the coping skills are working and to just see how I am doing. My next visit is this week so my ratings are nothing personal against Kristen's abilities as a therapist but more so due to short time that we have spent together so far.

I’ve told friends and co workers about this because it’s a great way to beat the stigma about mental health!

Kristen Wilson is responsive in a timely manner. She ask questions that make me think regarding my situation not just give a straight forward answer. I would recommend her to be used by a friend who needs someone understand ing.

Ms. Wilson is extremely knowledgeable and a great listener! She communicates clearly and gives wonderful advice and homework to help me grow and improve my life. She reaches out through messaging if she hasn’t heard from me in a couple days, which I really appreciate! It’s nice to know she’s there between sessions. She responds quickly to messaging and is very professional in her responses and sessions. I highly recommend Ms. Wilson to anyone looking for a therapist to give proactive strategies that will make an immediate difference in their lives!

Work with me!
