Kristina Nunez, PsyD
Provisionally Licensed Psychologist

My therapeutic approach can be described as thoughtful, collaborative, and multicultural.  I firmly believe that people are experts of their own lives and experiences. As such, I take extreme care to respect an individual’s unique identities, experiences, and perspectives as I work alongside them to help them grow. I will work with you to explore how the many different parts of who you are contribute to how you experience the world and relate to others, as well as play a critical role in your psychological well-being.

 

My goal is to create a safe space for you to show up authentically, so we may work together to develop a treatment plan that is specific to your therapeutic and personal goals. I will use my training and knowledge to provide therapeutic recommendations and techniques to help guide you to make progress towards accomplishing your goals.

The above rate is the full fee this therapist charges for a standard 50 minute session. However, we do not want cost to be prohibitive of people getting the help they need.
