Bio

Kristina is a senior therapist for ALW Counseling and Coaching. She completed her graduate studies at the University of South Florida and became a licensed clinical social worker in 2013 and has been working with individuals and families for over 8 years.

Kristina provides flexible, person-centered therapy that helps individuals realize their ability to change and overcome their challenges in a safe and trusting environment. Her therapeutic approach combines traditional psychotherapy with a practical, problem-solving approach that assists clients in seeking the inner strength needed to reach their goals.

Kristina works with Individuals, Families, and Couples in an effort to help manage thoughts, emotions and behaviors through therapeutic dialogue to create lasting change and foster personal and relational growth. I believe the ability to look into oneself helps us identify areas of weakness and develop healthier ways of living.

Kristina's specialties include couples/marital counseling, life coaching, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, elders/caregivers, women's issues and more.

Kristina's training and work experiences have been very diverse and have proven helpful in addressing each client's individual needs. Her experience includes private practice psychotherapy, life coaching, traditional counseling and substance abuse treatment in a community mental health program, group therapy, community outreach, medical social work, inpatient stabilization and more.

She is a member in good standing with the National Association of Social Workers (Chair for Sarasota-Manatee Unit 2013-2017).
