About

You can heal your life with your own mind/body! In today's stressful world, symptoms of anxiety, depression and troubled relationships are common. As an LMFT, I have 20+ years experience working with families, couples and individuals; healing traumas, mending relationships, reducing depression, anxiety and addiction and supporting personal growth. Focusing on "kindfulness," we work to shine a light of insight, offering profound transformation. With compassion and empathy, I guide clients to a deep sense of well-being which provides relief from many troubling symptoms and creates solutions to today's common modern life problems.
Many of us feel stuck in emotional pain; often recreating problematic childhood dynamics without knowing why, unaware of the choices available to us that can set us free. As a compassionate witness, using simple, profound Mindfulness-based techniques of IFS, EFT and body-based therapies, I help clients find comforting solutions that work for them.
Pandemic Support Group: As the confusion, isolation and fear surrounding COVID-19 drags on, people everywhere are struggling to cope. This mindfulness-based, virtual support group is designed to help clients with the stress and difficulty of our current shared experience.

Kristin Porter's Groups

Pandemic Support Group

As the confusion, isolation and fear surrounding COVID-19 drags on, people everywhere are struggling to cope. This mindfulness-based, virtual support group is designed to help clients with the stress and difficulty of our current shared experience. Connecting with like-minded people in a safe group container, facilitated by a licensed professional, can be particularly helpful as we all deal with the issues caused by the global pandemic, including interpersonal, health and financial concerns. Starting with a mindfulness activity, then an opportunity to check in, participates begin the weekly group processing focused on compassion, 'kindfulness,' and mutual support.
