Kristin specializes in narcissistic abuse, personality disorders, and sexual abuse.
There is an art to saying, "No". There's even an art to saying, "Yes". A system to determining what needs to change is necessary for you to experience healthy boundaries, to experience freedom, to experience healthy relationships. Tired of feeling run down? Anxious? Used? Of being the "go to" person? We can help you to figure out the problem areas contributing to your experience. You don't have to do everything or be everything for everyone.

My hearts’ delight is showing up for women recovering from narcissistic abuse.
You are mad at yourself because once again you're in a relationship with a narcissist. Your partner was fun and charming, but now you realize that he/she; is only interested in himself, is incapable of recognizing their responsibility when things go wrong, angry most of the time, and often has terrifying rage episodes; tell you that you are the crazy one. You feel isolated and confused and longer able to trust your own reality. You mask the pain with alcohol, drugs, sex, over-spending, over-working, over-pleasing, and over-doing, but eventually, these ways of getting through bad days stop working. You want your life back.

I treat those who are struggling with trauma, abusive relationships, sexual abuse/ assault, traumatic events, early childhood trauma, anxiety, panic, depression, anger, marital issues, and adult children of an alcoholic parent or narcissistic family member.
You just want to feel better, I get it, I've been there too! Maybe you are struggling with trauma from a recent event, childhood, or an abusive relationship? It may have you depressed, anxious, panicked, wondering who this person is, and finding relationships hard to manage. Maybe you have tried some things on your own or therapy in the past but it did work, we can dig deep together to find the root cause of these issues and strategize a plan that works for you. This may be traditional talk therapy, body therapy, attachment work, or EMDR. Through these techniques we'll work to free you from distress, pain, anger and grief.

You are a victim of narcissistic abuse.
You're entirely powerless. You've begun isolating yourself from your family. The shame is so deep that you're afraid to look them in the eye. They'll surely see the heavy secret you've been carrying. You've tried to be "good enough" for him, but the cycle of emotional abuse and manipulation is never-ending. You've begun to question your sanity. You make excuses for his behavior, his "moods". You've changed yourself to appease him and lost yourself in the process. You no longer recognize the woman in the mirror with her sad and tired eyes. You're disconnected from your friends and the things you once loved. You've lost who you are.

I specialize in helping you with heal from relationship trauma and wounding that may have been created in childhood or from a string of unhealthy relationships with people who were emotionally unavailable, narcissistic , or just emphasized that your needs weren't important.
Have you been in a relationship with someone who has been identified as a narcissist? Did your partner have little concern for your feelings and turn your world upside with chaos, conflict, abuse, and poor boundaries? You wonder what was wrong with you, why did things end this way, and if the universe working against you because people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Distrust of others and pain seem to be your life's theme right now. You long for a safe place to connect with someone who understands.

I have experience in anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, substance use, codependency, narcissistic abuse and recovery.
We all have our own individual & unique stories. However, we share the human experience of facing challenges, difficulties, even trauma, in our lives. It is normal to feel fear, worry, sadness, or grief. But when overwhelming emotions or maladaptive behaviors interfere with our functioning, relationships and general well-being, seeking professional help can be the most significant step toward transforming your life. If you are struggling, know that you are not alone nor must you do so on your own. There is no shame in prioritizing mental health. It takes strength and courage to make this investment and commitment to yourself.

I am EMDR trained and specialize in narcissistic /emotional abuse recovery, trauma/PTSD, codependency, anxiety, self-esteem issues, attachment wounds, life transitions, and relationship issues.
I believe that we are all self-healers and that change is possible. However, I understand how difficult life can be at times and that occasionally, we may feel completely lost or stuck in our current situation. Through our work together, we will shed some light on your many strengths and resources that can be utilized to work through any issue you are dealing with. While my approach is centered around self-discovery, empowerment, and building resiliency, I believe that you should not have to go through your healing journey alone. My hope is to guide you in exploring who you truly are and all that you are capable of.

This includes Narcissistic abuse and recovery, depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, self-harm through an array of therapies, open and non judgmental space and Trauma informed care.
Have you experienced things that have left you hurt, confused, fearful, angry? Do you feel as though no one will understand? Do you feel your identity is broken? Experiences have many variants. Some can be beautiful, while others leave us feeling traumatized, used, alone, and afraid. The outcomes can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, or thoughts to not be here anymore. This can impact how you feel about yourself, others, and how you live your life. Each person has their own unique story. I provide an open space to hear and guide using mindfulness-psychodynamic based practices catered to each individuals need.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in California, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in California listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
