Kristen Ford, MA, IMF

Marriage & Family Therapist Intern

My goal is to instill hope and to help people find happiness and healing. I provide a safe, friendly and nurturing environment to get to know my clients and incite positive change in their lives. I believe therapy is an integral part of continually challenging one self to grow as an individual and within their relationships.

I work with children, adults and families from a client-centered approach. I take into consideration your individual situation to fit your needs and goals. I have experience working with adults struggling with issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD and substance abuse. I have extensive experience working with children/adolescents with ADHD, depression, anxiety, struggling with behavioral issues and trauma. I understand turning to therapy can be a challenging and an intimidating process but I know together we can turn the process into an exciting and worthwhile adventure together.
