About Me

Hi! My name is Krysten, and I am your favorite Clinical Social Worker. I consider it a privilege to serve you through psychotherapy and counseling. I have been practicing social work for five years, in the medical and mental health fields, primarily working with adolescents, young adults, and families. I have a Master of Social Work degree and am currently a Doctoral Candidate for a Doctor of Social Work, with anticipated graduation in Spring 2022. My practice specialties include trauma-informed care, concerns related to culture and diversity, understanding family systems and their impact on development, and young adults struggling with transitions. I am also committed to practicing cultural humility and using Evidence-Based Practices. It is important to me to meet you where you are, educate and empower you to make the best choices for your life, and walk with you through some of your darkest moments. We don't get to choose our story, but we do get to choose how we use the fruit that it produces. Brene Brown said it best, “We don’t have to do it alone. We were never meant to.”
