Clients who meet with Kristin can expect, in the first few sessions, for her to gather extensive psychiatric, physical, and social histories in a context of compassion, safety, and respect. From there, Kristin will work with the client to set treatment goals and a plan for their work together. Sessions are then generally scheduled weekly. The length of therapy is determined by the goals the client brings. Kristin has been privileged to have as clients physicians, ministers, students, therapists, attorneys, farmers, homemakers, executives, artists, technicians, paraprofessionals, engineers, scientists, teachers, professors, ranchers, nurses, adolescents, children, and those with disabilities.
Kristin’s approach to individual therapy is practical and “no-nonsense” and generally focuses on linking a client’s thoughts and behaviors to his emotions, and learning new ways of thought and action to improve his everyday experience. She works to incorporate what will work best for each client. Kristin believes getting better is preferred to just feeling better. Kristin’s theoretical approach (or how she conceptualizes problems and works to solve them) is called Cognitive-behavioral therapy.
Kristin’s approach to couples therapy is characterized by focusing on strengths each member brings to the relationship. Issues of forgiveness and the re-instillation of hope, respect, love, and intimacy are her primary strategies.
