Welcome, my name is Kristen. I have been working in the mental health field for almost 20 years. I studied Family and Child Development at Virginia Tech as an undergraduate, then received my Masters from Virginia Tech in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have had experience working with adolescents and adults in the context of group therapy, family therapy, couples therapy and individual therapy. I specialize in relationship issues with a focus on couples work. I use a variety of approaches but am anchored in Emotionally Focused Therapy as I have found it to be the most successful approach in working with couples.
