More about me

Licensing: LISW, LCSW
Years in Practice: 5
State: IA

Hello and Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois and a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Iowa. I have over five years of counseling experience in Illinois and Iowa. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, marital, life balance and job stress. Throughout my clinical career, I have worked with all different populations from children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Deciding to get therapy can be a scary and I commend you on taking the first step and I look forward to working with you.

I utilize many different treatment approaches such as Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Reality Based, Person-Centered and Mindfulness.

My approach is to empower you to work towards the life you wants. It will be my job to guide you on your journey by helping you to gain insight to your behaviors, belies and automatic thoughts. As we get to know each other, we will figure out what interventions will work best for you. Counseling can make you feel vulnerable and I believe in creating a safe space for every one of my client. I look forward to hearing from you and starting this journey together.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I have only had two sessions with Kristi, but I can already tell she is the right fit for me and will help me reach my goals!

Kristi and I have worked together for a little over a year, and while there have certainly been ups and downs (on my end), when I look back and reflect I know she’s helped me become a calmer, more positive person and has helped me contain my anger in ways I didn’t know I could. I know I still have lots of work to do, but I’m confident with Kristi’s help I can overcome these hurdles and get to where I want to be mentally and emotionally. Kristi is a wonderful therapist who listens and always offers ideas or solutions for navigating short-term and long-term issues. She’s flexible with her time and recently found a pocket of time to help me through a bad situation. When I need her most, Kristi is there and I’m so appreciative of all she’s done to help me!

Kristilee has been extremely patient with my rescheduling and sometimes not showing. The electronic nature of counseling like this is not the easiest for me, but it's a good option during the pandemic.

Kristi is outstanding. I've never done the whole therapy thing but she is great! She has helped me with my daughter and has always followed up on how things are going. I appreciate her more than she will ever know.

Kristi is always so sweet and messages me when she hasn’t heard from me in a couple of days and checks on me. I feel like she always asks the right questions too! Love her and excited to continue working with her

Kristi has been extremely helpful with my indecisiveness and anxieties. She always gets back to me right away and reaches out if she hasn’t heard from me.
