I began my career by completing an internship in an outpatient adolescent treatment center. From there, I gained experience in an adolescent residential treatment program. During my career working with adolescents, I have successfully been able to build rapport with those skeptical individuals that may be shy or uncomfortable in a counseling setting. I focus on ways that we can work together to achieve their goals and lead a more fulfilled life while also recognizing that many of the challenges they face are partly their phase of life. Adolescents truly face challenges that come along with their phase of life and the ways their brains process information at this developmental age. I believe by normalizing their experiences and finding healthy ways of coping with their difficulties can lead them to become well adjusted teenagers and, later on, adults. I truly believe that by seeking help in the adolescent years, we can prevent mental illness as an adult.

Kristi is amazing! She has been very vital to my mental health. She is a true asset to teen counseling.
Kristi is amazing and is really great at not taking sides. She relates to both my partner and I and has been extremely helpful.
Still in the beginnings but feel confident in her services. My daughter has opened up and that's remarkable.
She is understanding and kind and checks on me periodically even if I haven’t reached out to her.
She is caring and attentive! Really supportive therapist!
Kristi is great! She listens and helps me problem solve my hectic life. I'm grateful to have her in my corner!
I am new to counseling and Kristi has made it a very comfortable experience and something I actually am looking forward too. I really dreaded going through this process with my husband but in just having this platform of support, we are making the right strides. She listens, is attentive, asks pertinent questions, and has never passed judgement in any of our sessions. So far, this is an excellent experience that I will recommend to friends if needed.
Kristi's compassionate and kind approach made it very easy for me to share and work on the things I needed to do to feel better. Talking to her was like having a weight lifted off my chest. She provided me with great tools and things to practice so that I can help myself too.
I am so glad I found teen counseling and Kristi Vidal. She made a difficult subject easy to talk about, offered good advice. Encouraged and listened. And kept checking back in and offering support when I felt discouraged. Thanks to her, I am making progress and steps toward a better future!
Kristi is very sweet & personable.
Kristi is a fantastic counselor who can pull on a variety of experiences and resources to present patients with illustrative guides on how to best tackle problems. She is also great at reinforcing positive behavior while also pointing out where errors have been made. Great overall!
