Kristin Posthumus, MA, Psychotherapist
The connection between the client and counselor is one of the most important aspect of counseling. Being able to be open and honest and having a trusting relationship between one another is the foundation for treatment. You are the expert of your own life. Kristin is there to listen, have an unconditional positive regard, help identify goals, assist building new skills, empower, and promote behavior change.
Kristin’s approach to individual, couples, family, and group counseling stems in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT focuses on thoughts which then effects an individual’s emotions as well as overall behavior. People often have detrimental thoughts about themselves flowing through their mind each day. By identifying these patterns, you can improve your self-esteem, your thoughts on others, and improve your overall mental health. However, Kristin understands the importance of altering each treatment plan to what best fits the client and what works best for them individually.
Kristin earned her Master’s degree in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of North Dakota.
