Kristin Scholl, LCSW
I have over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including the military, federal government, schools, hospitals and intensive outpatient programs. When working with clients I draw upon my specialized clinical training in many different evidence based practices. I find that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (in which I am certified by EMDRIA), in particular are very effective in helping clients of all ages with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger management, panic, phobias, stress, eating problems, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, and trauma.
I enjoy working with couples and families. When working with couples I like to help them deepen their friendship and intimacy as well as learn how to more effectively manage conflict. I have completed Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I am a Certified Trainer in Gottman’s Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. When working with children and their families, I focus on both parenting strategies, and use the “Kids’ Skills” model, which is a playful and practical approach to help kids become active participants in skill-bulilding and solution finding. My goal is to support families in working through communication issues and challenging times in a safe and caring environment.
