Authentic Solutions from Kristy Wiersema

Kristy Wiersema, LMSW, provides holistic counseling services to individuals struggling with anxiety, depression and complex trauma at Authentic Life. She says, “The search for a therapist can be exciting, but also pretty intimidating knowing this will be the person you open yourself up to. I understand how important it is that you feel comfortable with your counselor. In fact, I believe it is the most important part of the therapeutic process.” She interacts and connects with clients in a judgement-free space and notes that many are surprised by how comfortable they feel in the sessions.”

            Coming from a social work background, Wiersema takes a holistic approach, combining an array of therapeutic methods tailored to each client. She explains, “I place an emphasis on viewing the person within their environment and taking note of the complexities of the individual. Every individual is different, and their story is unique to them. My goal as a therapist is to meet the client where they are at and collaborate on goals for their life. I’d love to hear your story.”
