“In my time working with Kristy, she has helped remind of my worth in myself. I look forward to my session each week, because I know she cares deeply for me.  She’s helped me to recognize signs of stress and anxiety in my body, and how to cope with that independently. She makes me feel supported, and affirms positive decisions I make, while appropriately challenging me in areas I need to grow. She knows her stuff! If she wasn’t my counselor, I think we’d be friends!- but I’m really thankful for her support in the clinical setting. 10/10 recommend her.”
