Kristen O'Dell, LPC, MS
A note from Kristen: I believe that counseling is a process that should allow individuals the opportunity to explore their emotions in a safe space. I feel strongly that the counselor’s role in therapy is to facilitate the process of change by offering support for change to occur. I am interested in therapy that focuses on the individual, and I use eclectic techniques to support my clients. I have received training in play therapy techniques, family counseling, and trauma informed interventions. I work to help my client’s find an approach that fits their individual needs based on where they are in the present moment. It is my hope to met individuals, wherever they may be on their journey, in achieving goals to a happier life. Storms make trees take deeper roots.
