Kristine Kemp, LICSW
"What makes me unique is my creative approach to wellness (incorporating holistic remedies). In addition, I possess a keen knowledge of community systems and resources - both of which I regularly integrate into the therapeutic healing process."
Hello! It's an honor to meet you and walk with you on your healing path. I strive to provide a warm, safe and supportive environment that will enable you to attend to your past trauma while remaining grounded in the present. I work from a client-centered approach, empowering each client to discover their own innate healing skills, in order to move more freely in the direction of your life-valued goals.
