Get to Know Kristina (she/her)

I welcome clients of all backgrounds including all body sizes, abilities, races, sexualities, genders, and religions. I work with adolescents and adults who struggle with issues related to food, body image, anxiety, depression, perfectionism, self-compassion, and self-worth. I provide warm, evidence-based, non-judgmental care and actively collaborate with my clients in order to help them identify and work toward their goals. I have found that it is important to surround clients with a caring environment that seeks to identify their strengths and empower them overall.

I am so excited to join Eating and Behavioral Health Associates to further my training in Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E), an evidence-based approach to eating disorder treatment. While I tend to identify with a cognitive-behavioral approach, I understand that systemic factors play a major role in an individual’s life experience, which is why I value continuing education, community outreach, and consultation with other clinicians to provide holistic care to all clients. Primarily, I work with adults to help them gain a better understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and the relationship between them. Recovery is full of ups and downs, and I aim to support my clients through it all in order to reduce symptoms and work toward their goals.
I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Ohio. I attended the University of Oklahoma and received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Non-Profit Organizations. After graduation I attended NYU where I obtained my Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling and completed an internship at a college counseling center.
Throughout graduate school, I gained clinical experience working with young adults in a college counseling setting in Brooklyn, NY. I had the pleasure of leading groups with collegiate athletic teams as well. Working at a college only flourished my desire to work with young adults in a clinical setting and give them encouragement in a safe space to discuss life’s challenges. Every day I’m continuing to learn, grow, and blossom into the best therapist I can be to instill my clients with the support and skills they need.
