Therapeutic Approach/What to Expect:
Clients who meet with Kristin can expect, in the first few sessions, for her to gather extensive psychiatric, physical, and social histories in a context of compassion, safety, and respect. From there, Kristin will work with the client to set treatment goals and a plan for their work together. Sessions are then generally scheduled weekly. The length of therapy is determined by the goals the client brings. Kristin has been privileged to have as clients physicians, ministers, students, therapists, attorneys, farmers, homemakers, executives, artists, technicians, paraprofessionals, engineers, scientists, teachers, professors, ranchers, nurses, adolescents, children, and those with disabilities.

Kristin’s approach to individual therapy is practical and "no-nonsense" and generally focuses on linking a client’s thoughts and behaviors to his emotions, and learning new ways of thought and action to improve his everyday experience. She works to incorporate what will work best for each client. Kristin believes getting better is preferred to just feeling better. Kristin's theoretical approach (or how she conceptualizes problems and works to solve them) is called Cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Kristin's approach to couples therapy is characterized by focusing on strengths each member brings to the relationship. Issues of forgiveness and the re-instillation of hope, respect, love, and intimacy are her primary strategies.

Personal:
Kristin is married to Dr. Spence Wilson and together they have three children: Luke, Abbie Claire, and Annaliese Grace. They attend Life.Church in Owasso and are actively involved with mission outreach. Kristin enjoys spending time with her family and friends, volunteering at the local elementary school, and interior desing/restoring their old house in downtown Bartlesville. 

*The prestigious Counseling Psychology program at the University of Missouri - Columbia, in which Kristin Wilson received her M.A., is consistently ranked in the top five programs nationally among public, private, and Ivy League institutions in the U.S. News and World Report graduate school rankings (2015 and previous; see:
