Kristy works in Duluth and via telehealth, She enjoys working with couples of all orientations and will meet you wherever you find yourself in your relationship, beginning, middle, or end — there is always room for growth. She also works with individuals, especially those going through life transitions. No matter what you are experiencing, Kristy will work to create a safe and collaborative space in which you can discover what you need.
Kristy believes that we live in a complex world, one which is both messy and full of joy. With this in mind, she understands that people can find themselves overwhelmed and needing help getting unstuck. She brings a direct and accepting approach to the therapeutic experience. Using an attachment lens and an existential outlook she will help you understand yourself and your world. Because it is our connections that make us who we are and shape the way we live in the world, she believes working to enhance these connections can make our lives and our relationships more meaningful. Her overarching goal is to help you see your life as it is, and as you want it to be.
