Kristy Johnstone Clinical Psychologist

Hi, I'm Kristy 👋

Deciding to see a Psychologist is a big step, so congratulations for coming this far. Once you choose a therapist, stepping into a their virtual therapy room is the next big step, and for many people this can feel overwhelming.  A big part of my job is to help you feel comfortable and safe. All you have to do is take that step, show up and be yourself.

I’ll explain how I work, and once I get to know a little about you, we can come up with a plan together for what you would like to be different in your world. Then we’ll work as a team, kind of like a coach and an athlete, to help you reach your goals. I’m an expert on the human brain, mental health and relationships, and you are an expert on you. If we work together, we’ll combine our expertise and start the journey to a happier and healthier you.
