Kristy joined The Juniper Center in 2013 and especially loves working with women of all ages as they traverse relational challenges and life transitions from each developmental stage. She combines her skills as a relational therapist with her training in dance/movement therapy to offer a unique experience of exploration in your therapy sessions. Therapy sessions can include talking, embodiment, feeling identification, stress relief techniques, mindfulness practices, expressivity through art or movement, and creativity. Kristy specializes in assisting you as you explore life’s obstacles while highlighting and enhancing your strengths along the way. As a relational therapist, Kristy understands that all humans are relational beings and often our greatest pains and our greatest joys are borne of these relationships. Kristy specializes in working with individuals who have been impacted by relationship hardship/transition/trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief/loss, and stagnancy.
“In therapy, it is my hope to get to know who you are. As we build a therapeutic relationship, I believe that exploring other important relationships in your life (both past and present) will offer unique insight about how you see the world. Over every developmental stage, there are significant relational experiences that we all encounter. I have found that the therapeutic relationship acts as the vehicle from which change can occur while the roadmap is your experiences in relationship with others. We can navigate the complexities and nuances of your life while helping you to discover more effective ways to live your best life. I believe that therapy is a place to explore, express, exchange, and exhale. During your personal journey towards discovery and healing, I offer gentle, honest reflection; mutuality; validation; and authenticity.”
