About

I deliver cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based treatments to adult, seniors, and teens with a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and adjustment problems, such as anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship problems. I try to build on an individual's strengths and individualize therapy to each person's need. I believe psychotherapy can help individuals most effectively use their resources to increase self-understanding, to improve decision-making, to solve problems, and to create paths to the lives they want. I use mindfulness training to help clients live in the moment, with a compassionate and nonjudgmental approach.
Dr. Kreins completed her Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology in Fresno, CA. She graduated Cum Laude, In Honors from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA in 1993 with a B.S. in Psychology.
Dr. Kreins has been worked with geriatrics in the DFW area for the 12 years and has been in private practice for several years. She has taught workshops on eating disorders, body image, stress management, dementia, and depression.
