It always makes me excited to know someone has reached a point where they are willing (or at least curious) to work toward change and healing. It may be your first time working with a therapist, or perhaps you are continuing a journey already begun. Either way, you are the agent of change, and I will be here to guide and support you along the way. I encourage you to continue reading and determine if my therapeutic approach feels like a good fit for you.
How I Work
I like to take an individualized and holistic approach to the healing journey. I know there is not one style that fits all, so I like to start where you are and go from there. Feeling safe in our bodies is an important part of the work and I like to incorporate mindfulness techniques including breath work, meditation, and simple yoga poses that help promote release. I bring a down-to-earth and approachable demeanor to sessions and value authentic connection. I am certified in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) and have primarily worked
through a trauma-informed lens. Looking at experiences, attachment, learned beliefs and patterns can give us great insight in how to move forward. I also look at strengths and how individuals can work to create or improve support systems.
Kristy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a master’s degree from The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work.
