Kristy Wiersema is not currently accepting new clients.

On the outside you're trying to keep it all together. On the inside you're falling apart. You feel stressed, overwhelmed, and everything is a struggle. No matter what you do it's never good enough. You're tired of feeling tired and ready for change. I specialize in helping people struggling with depression, anxiety, and trauma. This may show up in your life as low self-esteem, difficulty staying motivated, or feeling overwhelmed by emotions. You've taken a big step in looking for help. Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with is an important part.

I'm passionate about creating a genuine and accepting environment. We'll interact, connect, and do this work together in a judgement free space. I enjoy my clients and get excited when I see them start to see themselves as the strong, resilient, capable people that they are.

Every individual is different. My goal as a therapist is the meet the client where they are at and collaborate on goals for their life. I'd love to hear your story. Let's chat about how I may be able to help you reach your goals.
