Kristen Ackerman, MA, LMFT

Kristen Ackerman, LMFT (#114822) is a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

Asking for help can be difficult and the decision to initiate therapy is the first step to making a change. I am passionate about helping others reach their personal goals and live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. I work with children (ages 7+) to adulthood. However, I specializing in work with pre-teens, adolescents, and young adults. Areas of focus include, but are not limited to depression, anxiety, peer pressure, changes in relationships, self-esteem, identity exploration, navigating life transitions, stress, and feeling overwhelmed. In addition, I also work with individuals who have chronic illness and are immunocompromised. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I value a space that is safe, responsive, and free from judgement.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth utilizes electronic and telecommunication technology (video or audio calls) to provide therapy services. I use a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant platform to help protect confidentiality. Telehealth has the benefit of allowing access to treatment at the comfort and convenience of your home. All you need is a device with video and audio capabilities, internet, and a private and uninterrupted environment.

Telehealth is not suited for everyone. As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I can only provide services to those residing in the state of California. Additionally, some clients may benefit from in-person services versus telehealth services. During the free 15-minute consultation, we can determine whether telehealth is right for you.

At this time, I am only providing telehealth services. There is no in-person availability.
