Kristin Anderson, LCSW

Message from Kristin

I provide psychotherapy for many concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, relational struggles, and women’s issues. I aim to create a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space for you to explore and learn new ways to cope with the issues that are coming up in your life. We can work together to help you to better deal with the struggles you're facing, heal past wounds, and successfully shift the unfulfilling and unsatisfying patterns in your life. I draw heavily from cognitive-behavioral (CBT) and psychodynamic techniques, with an emphasis on both practical tools as well as attention to deeper wounds and emotions. I use an eclectic approach and also intertwine elements of other modalities into my work including mindfulness & meditation techniques. I also am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which can be a powerful adjunct to traditional talk therapy. I aim to help you gain insight into yourself and discover ways to tap into the inner well of resilience inside of you. No matter the concern, I use an individualized approach to help you in the unique way you need. I’d love to speak with you, learn more, and explore how we can help navigate the challenges you’re facing together.

Get to Know Kristin

How much do you share about yourself during our time together and why?

I believe that the most important part of therapy is the human connection between client and therapist. At the same time, the relationship between client and therapist is, of course, not completely reciprocal. In my work, I strive to remain genuine and authentic with my clients while still maintaining the boundaries set by the therapeutic relationship.

Do you assign homework, activities, or readings for me to do between sessions? Why or why not?

It’s important that clients bring what we are discussing in the room out of the room and into their lives. Sometimes, in order to facilitate this, I may suggest activities or habits to keep when not in session. In general, however, my work focuses more on insight and the internal work rather than homework assignments.

How participatory are you during sessions?

My own style of participation is not one-size-fits-all. With some clients, I act as a sounding board and provide a space to discuss whatever it is that they are struggling with. With these clients, I take the backseat on our journey together. For most clients, however, I provide much more active participation. I dive into the work with the client and help them to explore new ways of coping and living. I try to help clients to look at things from multiple viewpoints and highlight things they may be missing. Before starting work with a client, I believe it’s important to have a conversation about what is most useful for the specific client so that we can work most efficiently together.

What are your policies and practices around insurance?

I'm an out-of-network provider, meaning I'm not in-network with any insurance panel. I do, however, help clients navigate accessing their insurance benefits and I submit claims for service directly to insurance companies. If you're unsure about your out-of-network benefits, feel free to reach out and we can figure them out together.

What is the best part of the work for you?

The best part of the work for me is seeing genuine progress and healing in my clients. Seeing clients achieve the goals that they have set for themselves is a wonderful experience. Very often, as a therapist, I may be one of the people who most fully understand the progress that a client has made and what their successes mean for them. My job allows me to act as a client’s biggest cheerleader, genuinely celebrate their successes, and help remind them of how far they’ve come.

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

Starting therapy can take courage and a little leap of faith to start out. Walking into the room and sitting with a therapist requires a level of vulnerability that you may not have experienced before. But, as all things in life, it’s the experiences where we allow ourselves to be open, authentic, and vulnerable that give us the greatest opportunities for growth. Therapy provides a warm, empathetic and safe space to explore whatever it is that you are struggling with and find new ways of living. You’ve already taken the first step forward by landing here. I encourage you to reach out so that we can take the next step together.
