Kristen Materek, LCSW, LCADC, CIRT
I believe in the power and process of therapy and the importance of creating an atmosphere that allows people to feel safe, comfortable, and heard without judgement. Therapy allows us to learn more about ourselves and rediscover our strengths. Therapy can provide us the tools to truly quiet our minds so that we can enjoy life again, feel fully alive, and present focused.
If you are experiencing difficulties in relationships, daily stressors, overwhelming anxiety or depression, we can work together to restore hope, challenge perspectives, and learn new methods for coping. We will work together to make positive change wherever possible, and reach acceptance of the things that we simply cannot change.
I am an LCSW & LCADC with 10+ years of experience. I am a Certified Imago Therapist and passionate about understanding and improving communication and relationship dynamics. I utilize a variety of evidenced-based practices including Mindfulness, CBT, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing. But together we will focus on the approaches that are most helpful in achieving your personalized goals.
