Professional statement

Kristin Overman is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Mill Creek, WA who specializes in trauma, anxiety disorders, and depression. While she works with a wide variety range of individuals, she particularly enjoys working with women in their 30s; adults who are navigating challenges from their childhood that they have not properly addressed; individuals who have social anxiety; men and women who are sexual abuse survivors; and women who have had an abortion. Many of her clients came from homes where one or both of their parents were alcoholics, which lead to emotional abuse and neglect.

Kristin is also a Christian counselor and has extensive experience working with both people of faith and those who are not interested in religion. Much of her work is around core beliefs and self-compassion.

Kristin is trained in Lifespan Integration (LI), which is both effective for healing trauma but also gentle and body-based. Using this approach, she will have her clients think about a traumatic memory with the intention of releasing tension in their body. The idea behind LI is the innate ability of the body-mind to heal itself. Kristin goes beneath the surface to help her clients address deeper issues and emotions.

Kristin also utilizes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to provide clients with practical tools to manage emotional ups and downs. She also reminds her clients that a thought is a thought and will pass. If interested, clients can receive therapeutic homework suggestions between sessions, including writing healing letters to process grief and loss, reading information on emotion regulation tools and practicing these outside of session, and completing personality assessments to gain more understanding and acceptance.

Kristin’s passion for helping others see how valuable, treasured, and capable they are is apparent the moment clients meet her. Outside of private practice, she is a domestic violence counselor at Evergreen Recovery Centers.


Message to clients

My goal is to offer you the comfort and encouragement you need to heal in the midst of your circumstances while providing you with practical tools to help you live life as fully as possible. I want you to know that what you are experiencing is a normal reaction to hard circumstances. One of my personal passions is helping people become mentally and emotionally free from the things that have weighed them down and caused them shame! Shame is the emotion that motivates you to want to hide, keep secrets and prevents you from sharing who you really are with others. This creates loneliness and feelings of disconnection. My hope is to bring more freedom and confidence into your life!
