Kristin Townsend, LMFT

Therapist A Better Life Therapy, LLC

Introduction

I truly love people. Even their messy parts. Maybe even especially their messy parts! I think that the most rewarding aspects of life come from digging under the clutter and finding hidden treasures. In the mess is where our creativity and resourcefulness live, it’s where we develop deep wisdom, it’s what makes us interesting and unique. Many of us grew up receiving messages that our internal experiences were private, unimportant, or overwhelming to others. When our deepest emotional needs are not addressed, over time, they transform into psychological issues and habitual patterns that keep us unfulfilled and unhappy. I want to help you find more clarity, feel more balanced and in tune. And help you understand your patterns, where they came from, know your strengths, what tools to use, have more compassionate, fulfilling relationships and personal success.
