Hey fellow humans! I’m Kirsten and my pronouns are she/they. My goal as a social worker/therapist is to help people become advocates for themselves where able, and to help them meet their needs in whatever way I can. I believe that people have a right to define success in their own terms and that ALL people have a right to be treated with dignity and respect. I am sex and body positive and believe whole heartedly in self-determination and empowering people. I am not afraid to call you out but know that you also will not find any judgment in our space. Feel free to speak and do whatever you need to feel like you are your most comfortable and most authentic self when we are together, I will do the same. I find that working with teens and adults is where I do my best work, most of my previous work as a therapist has been with LGBTQ+ and female identifying persons. I have worked with people with sexual trauma, religious trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, relational needs and conflict, and general interpersonal needs and difficulties. I am person centered which means that our work is defined by and geared toward you and your wants and needs. I approach things from a trauma informed systems perspective, which means that I think it is important to look at and know as many pieces as possible of the puzzle that makes up your life because our histories, environments, and communities play a big role in the way we see ourselves and respond to the world around us. I enjoy spending time with my partner and our fur babies. We have a dog, Hazel, and 3 cats: Squealer, Midnight, and Oreo. I like to hike, soak up the sun, do arts and crafts, and sing terribly off key. Thank you for honoring me with your story and I look forward to getting to walk with you on your journey.
