Kristine Ridler

Kristine Ridler, MTS

My goal is to walk alongside people and collaborate with them to inspire hope, growth, and healing on their journey towards wholeness. I work from a person-centred, strength-based, trauma and attachment-informed lens and offer an empathic, genuine, non-judgmental, and safe space for clients to discuss their concerns, rediscover their strengths, and overcome their challenges. 

 

My primary experience has been working with adults and couples who are navigating varying challenges related to mental health and wellness. My work includes supporting individuals/couples who have experiences of childhood and adult trauma, chronic pain, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. I work with clients using the following therapeutic modalities: Emotion Focused Therapy for Individuals (EFIT), Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT-C), Client-Centered Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Solution-Focused Therapy (SFBT).

 

I am an avid reader who is enthusiastic about learning. I enjoy physical activity, moments of solitude, and spending time in nature.
