I left every session feeling better than I had felt coming in, and after just a few sessions, I felt like I had a much better idea of what I wanted out of life and how to achieve it.

University Professor, New York

Kristen not only has great tips and advice to help everyone with their issues/struggles, she has great connections to important people and resources such as resume writers and certain department heads.
