ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! I believe that the therapeutic process involves collaboration between the therapist and client. As a team, we will work together to increase your mental health and growth. As your therapist, I will provide you with support, guidance, and an empathic environment to explore your thoughts, feelings, and goals. In order to collaborate on your path to health, it is important that there is a strong therapeutic relationship. Therefore, I strive to engage in a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where the client is aware that I value their input throughout every step of the therapeutic process.

If you are interested in exploring that connection, Kristy will put you at ease explaining that previous dance experience is not necessary! The movement process is about connecting with feelings that might be better expressed through movement, rather than, through verbal expression.

In her clinical work, Kristy has extensive experience with other creative modalities such as art, play therapy, music, role play, guided imagery and humor. Kristy will work with you to create a therapeutic plan that you are comfortable with, whether that involves traditional therapeutic techniques or including creative interventions.
