About Me

I am a licensed counselor in Missouri with over 5 years of experience, 3 of those strictly with teens! I specialize in trauma and crisis work. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, abuse, domestic and sexual violence, behavior modification, substance use and more.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines person centered, cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing and solution focused counseling. I am also trained in EMDR. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a 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 does remain neutral and is very helpful. I really like her. I feel comfortable and confident she will help us.

very helpful! immediately understands what her patients want when they explain to her, and is very gentle, and patient. I have felt able to open up to her even though I have very bad anxiety and am afraid of opening up at all.

Kristi is so nice & easy to talk to. It’s been easy for me to open up & talk about my life, feelings & past experiences with her.

Kristi told me to take time for myself and set clear boundaries for the other people around me in order to work on school and I took it into practice. It helped substantially.
