Kristin attended Texas A&M University and attained a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in psychology.

In the midst of her education degree, she went on a six-month mission trip to Kenya to serve as a house parent and teacher at a boarding school that reached out to underprivileged adolescents. While in Kenya, she realized her passion for listening to people’s stories and decided to seek a career in counseling.
Kristin has an MA in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. She loves collaborating with people of all ages, and she especially enjoys working with littles. She has over ten years of experience working with children in different capacities as a teacher, nanny, and babysitter. She also enjoys learning with people from other cultures and has served and explored within different cultures around the world. She has 3 years of experience as the lead special needs’ teacher at her church where she taught children with disabilities and neurodiversity such as autism, adhd, spina bifida, and blindness. She utilizes techniques from play therapy, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, and person-centered counseling.
Her favorite part of counseling is walking compassionately alongside others where they are and helping them to heal as they realize their inherent worth and find freedom from fear and shame.
Kristin loves photography and has had the privilege of going on safari twice where she photographed “Simba and Nala” (whilst “The Circle of Life” was playing on repeat in her head).
