Kristine Berard-Whitfield (She/Her)

Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC
 therapist: Kristine Berard-Whitfield,
Online in Georgia
I hold a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. As a clinician, I have worked in both family counseling and holistic wellness settings. My areas of specialty are Individual Therapy, Teletherapy, and Hypnotherapy. I work with a variety of different concerns women face, such as Trauma, Adjustment Issues, Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Shame, Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Health/Caregiver concerns. My theoretical approach utilizes the underpinnings of Cognitive Behavioral Theory, while incorporating perspectives and interventions from Narrative, Feminist, and Existential Theories. Our work together is designed to be collaborative, emotionally supportive, and dynamic. We will explore the fundamental elements in your life, with a focused respect for the meaning you have made of your experiences. We will look for creative new ways for you to define, manage, and overcome obstacles. The guiding principle of our work will be empowering you to heal and flourish. In addition to being an LPC, I am also a certified hypnotherapist. For clients interested in exploring hypnotherapy, the process of guided relaxation and subconscious awareness can be used to encourage healthy habits, reduce anxiety, or shift emotional blocks. Hypnosis is the intentional setting of your internal compass, and it can be a powerful tool toward self-determination.
