My Approach to Helping

As a woman who has experienced a difficult healing journey from her own past trauma and was able to learn to embrace her own authentic sexual, spiritual, and personal identity and created a life she loves, I am able to fully empathize with others experiencing anxiety about their identity and life with no judgment and provide a safe space for growth, healing, and change.

Kristene Thorne is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who specializes in treating LGBTQ+ and sexuality issues, anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, trauma, life transitions, and spirituality issues to all ages (4 and up). Kristene also specializes in working with women of all ages and specific women’s issues. She has over 17 years of experience in providing clinical/therapeutic care. Kristene affirms all genders, sexualities, faiths, and families. As a former public school counselor, Kristene works well with children, teens, families, and teachers in the Virginia school system. Kristene completed her Master of Arts in Counseling & School Counseling at Eastern Mennonite University and is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider (CTMH), and Certified ADHD Professional (ADHD-CCSP). She recently presented for the Southern Sandtray Institute’s “Sandtray Suite” professional program on how to work with the LGBTQIA+ population utilizing sandtray therapy. As a CCTP, Kristene utilizes person-centered therapy and expressive arts techniques including sandtray therapy and art. She also utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help facilitate change. Kristene believes in the power of the therapeutic relationship and activating the “right brain” in therapy.
