Hello-thank you for reading my profile! I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2009 and have been passionate about doing counseling/therapy since I was in college. Currently I am licensed in the state of CA and have been working in the field of mental health since graduating from UCLA with my M.S.W. in 2000. I have worked with teenagers at community health centers and also in private practice. My specialty in graduate school focused on mental health with children and adolescents. I truly believe in counseling as a tool to assist people in becoming more fulfilled, happier, less anxious, or whatever your goals may be. I believe counseling should be client-centered, focusing on the client's goals and desires, and I focus on the strengths of the person in order to help realize each peron's full potential. It is the client's strength and self-determination that will guide the process, as I actively listen, ask questions that will help me to understand better, and provide a different perspective that may lead to insight by the client.

We love Kristin! She had been helpful and understanding.
Kristin has really helped me clarify situations in my life that cause me anxiety and stress. Her feedback has been helpful and encouraging!
She was kind and considerate and a great listener. She was not biased and was also helpful with unraveling what I was feeling.
