Hey! I'm Krista, and I geek out about the human brain. In fact, people are my passion! I find it absolutely fascinating how our brains work, the way we think, and how we interact with one another. It's this passion that led me to become a therapist almost 10 years ago, and it's what fuels my desire to change the mental health game.
As a modern therapist, I believe in modeling authenticity to make you feel more comfortable being authentic with me. You won't get a stuffy, closed-off, or cold therapist with me - I'm all about being real and true to myself, and that's exactly what you can expect from me.
My relaxed environment offers you the freedom to be your true, authentic self. There's no shame in wanting to improve yourself, and I'm genuinely proud of you for taking this step. I believe that everyone can benefit from healing work, and I'm here to help you do just that.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I have professional training in effective therapeutic modalities for treating life trauma. Rather than asking "what's wrong with you?", I approach my clients from the perspective of "what happened to you and how did this impact you?". Together, we'll work to heal from painful memories and lessen their emotional hold on you.
On a personal note, I'm a half-Korean Scorpio who loves spending time with my family and friends, trying new and culturally diverse cuisine, and indulging in coffee and desserts. I'm an ally in every sense of the word. Listening to music, playing games, and dancing are some of my favorite ways to unwind. I've absolutely been a client in therapy and have done my own therapeutic work. Being in the healing space with others is one of my favorite places in the world to be.
If you're ready to take the next step towards healing and growth, I'm here for you. Let's work together to create a happier, healthier you.
Ready to start your healing journey? Drop me an email when you are. Keep in mind, I only offer virtual sessions on Mondays to Thursdays, from 1-5 PM. I accept United, Aetna and Cigna insurances, and for those without insurance, my 50-minute individual sessions are $110.
