Kristin strives to ground her clinical practice in humility and compassion, as well as an eagerness to learn from and with the clients and families she serves. She brings to The Sibley Group several years of experience and specialized training in the fields of adult and pediatric palliative care, pediatric oncology, and hospice. Kristin has expertise in helping individuals of all ages and their families navigate challenges related to illness, medical trauma, end-of-life care, grief, and bereavement.
At The Sibley Group, Kristin works with children, adolescents, and adults dealing with any of the above issues, as well as anxiety, depression, trauma, changes in identity, low self-esteem, or life transitions. Kristin tailors her therapeutic approach to the client’s individual needs, incorporating creative modalities like expressive arts, play, bibliotherapy, and narrative therapy along with strategies from more traditional models like cognitive and dialectical behavior therapies. Kristin’s goal is to meet her clients where they are and to walk with them as they work to move closer to where they want to be. She uses a calm presence, authentic curiosity and open-mindedness, and a strengths-based perspective to create a safe and therapeutic space for growth.
Kristin graduated Phi Beta Kappa with her BA from The George Washington University. She received her MSW from The University of Michigan School of Social Work and completed her post-Masters fellowship through Harvard Medical School’s Center for Palliative Care. Kristin has advanced certification in palliative care and hospice social work and is licensed to practice in D.C., Virginia, Delaware, and Massachusetts.
