Hello Parents!

I am delighted to be part of Ennis School District as a student therapist in training in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. 

I am training in Child-Centered Play Therapy, using various types of play and expressive therapies that are tailored individually to each child. I am a Certified Trauma Professional to work with a variety of situations to help children and families manage everything from anxiety, depression/sadness, stressor related challenges, and dealing with grief and loss, to name a few.

If you would like for me to meet with your child at the school on Mondays or Thursdays in 20-30 minute visits, I would be happy to set up a 15-minute phone or in person consultation with you to learn how I can best work with you and your child.

Here is a link to my biography if you’d like to read more about me: Kristi's Bio.

You may email me or call me directly to set up an appointment. I can be reached at:
