Hope and a Brighter Future
Kristine meets her clients, whether child, adolescent, or young adult, at that individual’s own level, learning what it is like to live in their shoes, how they are experiencing life, and what they see as their difficulties. She understands that sometimes kids and teens just need someone outside of their own family to listen, with whom they can talk things through. She also knows sometimes they need more…like healthy coping skills, and behavior strategies. Either way, Kristine is there for her clients, to meet their needs and to help each reach their goals for counseling.
