6 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello and welcome, I'm Kristine! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Orange County, California and I work with clients statewide via telehealth. Do you feel like you haven't been enjoying your life the way you would like to - or even the way that you used to? Does it seem like there have been more worries than answers/solutions in your life? I empower high performers to manage depression, anxiety, life transitions and relationship nuances. Together, we can identify what hasn't been working the way that it used to and find ways to sharpen what does work while adding new methods that can balance and bring hope back into your life. Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues or the cycles of life transitions - I'm here to help. It takes a lot of courage to seek therapy so I look forward to supporting you in your journey of growth and transformation. You can expect to have a safe, nonjudgemental and empathetic space to feel seen and validated when working with me. When it comes to mental health, I follow a "No B.S." policy - No Blaming&Shaming! Together you and I will use an eclectic and flexible approach in therapy that fits your needs!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

What you can expect from our first session together is for us to spend the majority of our time talking about how you have been feeling recently and for me to empathetically ask questions to gain insight and understand parts of why you may be feeling that way. In our first session together, we will be focused on building an initial connection and helping me get a sense of where we should go from there. Since each individual is unique and different, I make sure to listen first before assuming I know what will work best for you moving forward.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My communication style is warm, accommodating, and personable. I genuinely enjoy seeing individuals unapologetically become the best versions of themselves all while still gently reminding them to be kind to themselves as they will continue to grow through life’s challenges. I also integrate mindfulness and expressive activities to help you become comfortable with accepting who you are and identifying what is most important to you.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Is your way of living life being challenged by anxiety and depression? CBT is an evidence-based approached that's proven effective in helping you improve your overall functioning while feeling better. CBT has taught Clients how to identify, describe and process their triggers, thoughts, feelings behaviors and identify effective ways to manage them. In therapy, we'll use that insight to improve your thinking patterns, which will then help you feel more in control of your anxiety, depression and life stressors.
