My Approach to Helping

Kristi is a Mental Health Counselor who offers individual and couples therapy to address various mental health challenges including traumaPTSD, substance use and addiction, relationship conflicts, interpersonal and professional difficulties, self esteem issues, mood disorders and more. Additionally, she has experience in the areas of multicultural issues, LGBTQ, sexuality, gender and identity.

Kristi’s goal is to create a therapeutic space where her clients feel safe, heard and supported. She takes a collaborative and interactive approach to help clients gain new insights about the underlying patterns of their difficulties in order to create fundamental and lasting change. Her style is warm, empathetic, and non- judgmental while also honest and direct. Kristi prides herself on being approachable. She would rather joke with people rather than judge them and, though she loves to talk, she finds listening to be just as powerful.

Her approach is rooted in psychodynamic theory, while also applying CBT and relational techniques, motivational interviewing and mindfulness, depending on a client’s needs. Kristi aims to provide clients with the tools they need to help them discover and unlock their full potential.

Kristi earned her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University, and completed her training with dual diagnosis (addiction and mental illness) at an outpatient substance abuse treatment center in Manhattan.

More Info About My Practice

Douglas Psychotherapy was founded in 2005 out of a desire to create a different kind of private psychotherapy experience, one in which the most recent evidence based practices and more traditional psychodynamic psychotherapies go hand in hand while also offering innovative prevention resources that support wellness and thriving.

Douglas Psychotherapy offers a comprehensive range of therapy services for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in order to address varied challenges. Our practitioners are an interdisciplinary multi-specialty suite of independent providers with locations on the upper east side and midtown. We share a unified goal: To support the health, vitality, purpose, and quality of life of everyone we serve.
