As a Marriage and Family Therapist, Kristy is invested in facilitating healthy relationships in families, children, and individuals.
Kristy grew up in Utah County in a family with nine children. In her own family and culture, she saw many struggling with feelings of shame, guilt, depression, and anxiety.
She noticed that sometimes those feelings of depression and anxiety would get in the way of having healthy relationships; so she wants to do her part to help you.
While becoming a therapist, Kristy worked with elementary kids in a Strengthening Families Program at Utah Valley University. In this program, she taught kids about self-esteem, communication, goals, and problem-solving skills.
She saw the kids develop a sense of hope and how that small bit of hope spread through the entire family. This experience enhanced her motivation to become a Marriage and Family Therapist who works with children and families.
