Professional statement

Kristen Walker is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Master Alcohol and Drug Counselor located in Hampstead, NH. Kristen works with a wide range of individuals, from teenagers to older adults. Many of Kristen’s clients focus their therapy around alcohol or drug addictions, communication issues, depression, anxiety, or relationship conflicts. They struggle with low self-esteem and sometimes feel like imposters. Many of them are going through major life transitions like a change in relationship status or changing careers.

Kristen utilizes a therapy modality called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) when working with clients. This therapy approach, combined with Motivational Interviewing, helps clients explore their reasons behind decisions. Kristen encourages clients to make decisions or changes in their lives to center around their values - what’s most important to them. She also teaches clients how to assess their thought patterns for harmful cognitive distortions that lead to feelings of shame or self-criticism. Clients learn how to cope with distressing emotions and not become overwhelmed, which can help them in their relationships.

Kristen earned a Master’s degree from Rivier College. She has experience working in community mental health, residential care, and assertive community treatment. She is comfortable working with individuals who have multiple mental health concerns, and provides empathetic guidance to those looking for additional support in their lives.
