Kristen is a down to earth, gentle, kind and compassionate therapist who uses humor, analogies (and the occasional curse word) in her work with clients. As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with additional training in psychodynamic psychotherapy Kristen has experience in many types of practice: inpatient psychiatric care, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, group therapy, private practice and family therapy. Kristen's ideal client is someone interested in exploring their past, how their upbringing creates patterns in life and how they can best learn to navigate the difficulties in life. Kristen sees clients ages 14 and up with special experience in the aging population. She's been told time in session feels safe, warm and like a safe place to land when the rest of the world feels overwhelming.
When not at work Kristen loves to collect plants, build miniature dioramas, spend time with her special needs Yorkie, listen to music and enjoy all that the Twin Cities area provides.
