Kristen Kansiewicz, LMHC

I became a counselor because I wanted to address the stigma of mental illness in faith communities and in society as a whole. I enjoy seeing others take positive steps in their lives.

In the past few years, I have become passionate about supervision due to the lack of quality supervision in the field. I use researched supervision techniques including IPR (Interpersonal Process Recall) and role play, and I address professional development stages.

I hope growing counselors are dedicated to seeing real improvement in their clients' lives. I hope as a field we help erase stigma so that all who experience the symptoms of mental illness feel comfortable getting help.
