Cadenza Counseling

In music, a cadenza is a moment when the accompaniment rests and a soloist is able to have a moment of true expression. This moment can include themes from earlier in the work, or be completely improvised. It is a powerful moment of true, authentic expression.

Together, we will create a positive and affirmative space for you to let everything else rest and have a moment to both truly express and work towards becoming your most authentic self.

Owner of Cadenza Counseling, Krissi utilizes a stoic, existential lens to help clients work towards their goals by focusing on what we can control; ourselves. This includes respecting the complexity of self, and acknowledging the impact of the world on us, including our culture, society, oppression, power, and privilege.

Krissi is available via telehealth for individual sessions Tuesday through Thursday mornings and afternoons.

Krissi is a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern in Florida (IMH20586) under the supervision of Dr. Ximena Mejía. (This means I am working on meeting Florida's requirements for licensure!)
