Krystal Paquette McBride MAS-LAMFT, Licensed Associate Marriage & Family Therapist

First, I want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.

I focus on creating an emotionally safe place to allow individuals to feel safe, to be vulnerable and lean into discomfort, to create change that may be desired or needed. I work on creating this through my style and approach with therapy; direct but compassionate and caring. In addition, I use humor and transparency, when appropriate. It is the balance of being client-centered (meeting clients where they’re at) and encouraging change (which sometimes includes calling out BS or respectfully challenging individuals when needed).
