Adult Specialized Services
Individual sessions are designed to meet the unique needs of each adult client. Therapy works to serve the needs of each client by processing the past, present and future aspects of each person in a safe and understanding environment.
Krysti is sensitive to each individual’s unique personal journey. She uses a therapeutic approach that highlights the working alliance that values the supportive relationship between client and their therapist. Whether brief treatment or long term therapy, Krysti believes in working along side her clients to achieve their personal goals. Krysti believes in treating the whole person, acknowledging the physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual.
Issues addressed in therapy may include attachment, sexual/physical and emotional abuse, loss and separation, self image and self esteem, learning difficulties, self harm, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress reduction and meditation, among others. Krysti has worked closely with individuals from a wide variety of cultures, backgrounds and diverse personal needs.
