LICSW-MA and LCSW-PA; Licensed Psychotherapist; Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist (KAP) and a Recovery Coach. Kristen brings a wealth of personal experience and authenticity that a formal education cannot teach. She has an established reputation for providing culturally affirming, client-centered and strengths-based supports. Kristen understands the many ways Intersectionality impacts people’s lives and is a staunch advocate for de-stigmatizing mental health and substance abuse. She is a teacher, trainer, therapist and consultant who identifies as LGBTQIA, in Recovery and Neurodiverse. Integrative/Eclectic in style

-I engage and support clients throughout their therapy journey with an Integrative/Multi-Modality approach, to better cater the supports and interventions to the client-specific needs, working from a “What matters to you?” vs a “What is the matter with you?” standpoint.

-Specialize in working with adults who struggle with Serious Mental Illness (SMI); Mood/Anxiety Disorders; ADHD; PTSD; Trauma; Substance Use Disorders and Dual Diagnosis.
– Versed in numerous modalities, including Motivational Interviewing (MI); CBT; EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique); SMART Recovery; Moderation Management; IFS (Internal Family Systems); EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).

I also offer a therapeutic modality called Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), the use of ketamine as a complement to psychotherapy. I deliver KAP in my practice in partnership with an organization called Journey Clinical, which has a specialized medical team that determines eligibility for KAP, prescribes the ketamine, & supports us in monitoring outcomes.

If you would like to explore the possibility of working with me on KAP and/or any type of therapy please e-mail me at to discuss eligibility and next steps.
