Hi, I'm Kristyn and I am a licensed professional clinical counselor in the state of Ohio. First off I want to say that you are courageous because it takes a lot to seek out help when you need it most. At this moment, your life may feel overwhelming and anxious thoughts will not rest and peace may seem out of reach. You may feel burden with guilt and shame where there may be no hope within sight. I would love to come along side you and help you find that peace, to find hope, and restore balance back into your daily routines. I have over 7 years of experience with utilizing several different evidence-based approaches tailored to the needs of my clients across many different types of settings. I will help you develop and achieve manageable goals to discover what is working and what is not and utilize healthy coping skills with empathy and compassion. I will provide you a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to heal and grow. I look forward to working with you!

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

During our initial session, we'll begin with brief introductions. Following that, I'll ask you specific questions about your history and the challenges you're currently facing. The main objective is to create a safe and comfortable environment, fostering a positive connection between us. From there, we'll work together to develop a personalized treatment plan for our future sessions.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

It is very important to me to approach my clients holistically, meaning bringing different areas of your life, physical, mental, relational, and spiritual into the counseling process. I utilize various counseling approaches in session, such as person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused, and trauma-informed care. I have completed trainings in levels 1 and 2 of "The Gottman Method" in regard to couples counseling. Please note for couples counseling services, it is self-pay only. Rates are $209 for assessment sessions and $130 for follow-up sessions.

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

I am caring, kind, empathetic, and compassionate where I approach my client's in a respectable manner. Regardless of what brings you to counseling, whether its is dealing with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, parenting transitions and challenges, relational issues, I value that each individual comes into counseling with a different, unique experience where there is not a one size fits all approach. Additionally, I have received training in integrating Christian faith principals into treatment. This is available upon request. Choosing a counselor can be an intimidating and overwhelming process, so we will start with scheduling you for a free 10-15 minute consultation where you can ask any questions that you may have about the counseling process.
