Kristin Harper

(M.Ed., LMHC)

About Me

I have 4 years of experience working with the adolescent population in various settings such as a Middle School, High School, residential facilities for both boys and girls, private practice and community mental health. I counsel teens dealing with anxiety, social rejection, self-harm, low self-esteem, depression, trauma, gender identity issues and relationship issues. I focus on helping teens explore and clarify their personal goals, recognize their strengths, regain a sense of control, and develop the tools they need to move forward in their lives. I utilize family systems and the solution focused approaches when conducting individual and family therapy. I also integrate faith based concepts, when appropriate, in assisting clients in finding more meaning and purpose in their lives. I know change is challenging and it takes courage and commitment to reach out for help. I believe that a supportive, compassionate therapeutic relationship is the basis for change. In the comfort and convenience of your own home, I will help you choose the best path to accomplish your goals and achieve a more fulfilling life.

So far so good- she seems to really care about understanding my daughters history and acknowledging her concerns. This is our 2nd counselor and we are very happy so far ;)

Kristin has helped me to get behind the car accident and other things that had happened before and after the accident. She has listed to me and offered helpful tips so when a trigger happens I know how to handle it now. Thank you so much Kristin for being here for me!

Kristin is a wonderful therapist! She is kind, patient and wise. Throughout our time working together, she taught my partner and I many tools for better communication and compassion. We've seen a huge improvement in our relationship since we started therapy and both feel much more satisfied with our lives overall. I strongly recommend Kristin!

Only been with Kristin a couple of weeks but she’s helped so much in such a short space of time. I’m happy to talk to her about any problems. I’m extremely comfortable! I would highly recommend!

Kristin makes me feel worthy of putting time into myself. She never makes me feel like I'm bothering her, she never pushes our conversations too far, and she congratulates me on my progress. Absolutely recommend.

I like that she practices active listening in our sessions it helps me to feel heard and understood. After a session with Kristin I feel physically lighter, because I unburdened myself of all the things I don’t feel comfortable talking about with other people.
