Helping Humans Since 2014
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 'office' is a chill space where you can let your guard down, be yourself, and let yourself be truly seen. Don't be shy about wanting to grow and improve! I'm proud of you for taking this step. Everyone can benefit from a little healing work, and I'm here to help you make it happen.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I'm trained to help people work through tough experiences and move forward from painful memories. I don't ask "what's wrong with you?" – instead, I want to know what happened to you and how it's affecting you. Together, we'll find a way to lessen the grip of those tough moments.
On a personal note, I'm a blend of heritages, being half-Korean and (basically) half-French, and I deeply value the rich tapestry of cultures that this brings into my life. I love spending time with my family and friends, trying new and culturally diverse cuisine, and indulging in coffee and desserts. My worldview is shaped by a secular perspective, cherishing reason, empathy, and our shared humanity, finding profound beauty in our shared experiences and the vastness of our universe. 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.
I'm on a mission to give my clients the courage to tear up the old stories that hold them back and take a bold leap into a lifestyle that is brimming with self-love and fulfilling relationships!
Who Is My Ideal Client?
My ideal client falls within the age range of 21 to 45 years. This is a dynamic and transformative period in life, often marked by significant personal, professional, and relational developments.
The clients I work with often find themselves struggling in their romantic relationships. These struggles might include:
Communication Difficulties: They may face challenges in effectively communicating with their partners, leading to misunderstandings, conflicts, and feelings of disconnect.
Balancing Personal and Relationship Goals: Individuals in this age group are often trying to balance their personal ambitions with their relationship goals, which can create tension and stress.
Navigating Life Transitions: Whether it's moving in together, marriage, career changes, or starting a family, life transitions can put a strain on romantic relationships.
Intimacy Issues: They may struggle with developing or maintaining intimacy, both emotional and physical, which is crucial for a healthy and fulfilling relationship.
Past Relationship Baggage: Previous romantic experiences, whether positive or negative, can significantly impact current relationships. Understanding and working through this baggage is often a key focus.
My ideal clients are individuals who recognize these challenges and are ready to address them. They are open to exploring their relationship patterns, willing to learn new skills, and committed to personal growth. They understand that improving their romantic relationships not only enhances their personal happiness but also contributes to their overall well-being.
