Acuity Counseling Therapist Bio

 

Kristina Anderson, MA, LMHCA, MHP

Individual and Trauma Therapist

Kristina’s work with individuals centers around her belief that successful therapeutic work develops through mutual trust and effort in the process. Having not only a listening ear, but someone who can match your efforts with expertise in those issues, is what sets the groundwork for real change in your life.


Working with Individuals

How do you know you’re being listened to? Understood? Validated? These can look very different and, depending on the relationship with the person you’re talking with, can make you feel empowered or minimized.  It’s hard to work on issues when it feels like no one truly understands what you’re going through. Kristina not only listens but empathizes with your experiences and joins with you to help you reach your goals.

Helping Through and After Trauma
Trauma is different for everyone and Kristina understands how personal it is to work through past or present experiences to move towards a happier, healthier life. She embraces the honor to work through life adversities or trauma (however YOU define it), to understand how they’ve negatively impacted your life. Together, Kristina walks WITH you on your journey.

How I Can Help
Kristina takes a solution-focused approach, emphasizing the strengths and resources you have as an individual. She believes in equality and equity, having sensitivity and understanding around cultural diversity and acknowledging privileges and oppressions within our society (social justice/equity framework). Using EMDR therapy to process past events (whether traumatic or unsettling) to help gain an understanding of the past and how it affects the way we carry ourselves in the present and future.
