Want to react less -- and respond more?

Creating and maintaining relationships between your Self and parts, as well as among your parts, will help you lead a life of greater ease -- filled with more calm, clarity, courage, creativity, curiosity, confidence, and compassion -- as well as less conflict and more connection to yourself and others, both personally and professionally.

Ready for Transformation?

Hello. I help individuals, couples/partners, and small business leaders and teams better notice and 'be with' their parts (such noticing and dialoging inside to help a tense and anxious part of ourselves), rather than 'being' their parts (such as remaining tense and anxious). They are then able to react less -- and to respond more -- with calm, confidence, clarity, compassion, courage, connection, curiosity, and creativity. Clients I enjoy working with include individuals (especially therapists and creatives), couples/partners wanting to connect more, and small business leaders and teams in need of support with leadership development, transforming communication barriers, and resolving conflict. I have completed IFS Level 1, Level 2, & Level 3 trainings, IFIO Basic, IFIO STB, postdoctoral coursework at the C. G. Jung Institute in NYC, and I have served as an IFS Level 1 Program Assistant to help others learn IFS while attending to their own parts. A little about me. I'm an able-bodied cisgender white person, I am working to be more conscious of my privilege, and to use it to help make the world better for everyone. My ancestors came to the United States from Europe and the Middle East. I identify as a woman, a feminist, a lesbian and a queer person, someone who is now situated in the middle class, and who became a parent in midlife. I live on the sacred, yet unceded, land of the Quinnipiac people in New Haven, CT, US. I am working to better understand the marginalizations of others, and I hope to be considered an ally. In addition to work, I'm fond of being with family and friends, wheeling around on with my bicycle, foraging for black licorice, and devouring detective novels. For individuals, I offer a financial hardship sliding scale rate of $125, instead of the full $150 rate for 45 minutes. I do ask you please consider paying what you can though, so others are able to benefit from the sliding scale as well. For couples/partners, I offer a financial hardship sliding scale rate of $175, instead of the full $200 rate for 45 minutes.I do ask you please consider paying what you can though, so others are able to benefit from the sliding scale as well. For businesses, my hourly rate starts at $500 for 45 minutes depending on your needs. In our initial session, I will be determining your needs to see if we are a good fit, and if I can match your scheduling needs with those of my own. I can only see a few clients at a time due to my personal responsibilities as a parent, and my other professional responsibilities as a professor and an author.

“Kristine is a delight to work with who possesses a powerful insight into the mind. ”

Bill Liao, Partner, SOSV Global Venture Capital

“It was a pleasure to work alongside Kristine as a Program Assistant in an IFS training! She is perceptive, intelligent, and consistently demonstrates qualities of Self including (and of course, not limited to) confidence, clarity and compassion. ”

Catherine Cope, LPC, IFS Therapist

“What I appreciate most about Kristine is her dedication to the 'You Turn'. She walks the talk, slowing down and turning inward to listen and respond to feedback. You want this in a therapist! It means the person sitting with you is doing their own work. ”
