Kristin Kempff MS, LMHC
I am humbled to have the opportunity to be present while people navigate their way through life’s inevitable challenges. I am a licensed therapist (LMHC) in Washington state; I attended Grand Canyon University and hold a Master of Science degree in Professional Counseling. I also received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Arizona State University. I find a deep connection between my English literature background and my work as a therapist: both seek meaning and beauty in hardship, ever studying and working through the art of humanity.
I have two young children and can speak from professional and personal experience when working with people who are struggling with parenting, postpartum recovery, and perinatal mental health. I also have specialized training and experience in working with survivors of child sexual abuse, sexual assault, individuals coping with substance use, and trauma survivors who struggle with self-harm behavior.
In my free time I enjoy reading, writing, gardening, sewing, music/vinyl records, and napping. In our seemingly always busy/rushing culture, I’m a strong believer in loafing as a form of revolt, and strive to do as little as possible, as slowly as I can. I often integrate this approach in my therapy, as I’ve found that a large number of people struggle with being present in their own lives.
