Kristy Torsky, LPC

I'm honored when someone shares their story with me.

Let’s talk about personalized coping mechanisms and stress management skills that we’ll develop together in a judgement-free zone.

There's no problem too big or too small to talk about.

My approach to therapy is different with every person, but I always work to provide a comfortable environment where I truly honor the space and time we spend together. I tell my clients that this is their path and I’m here to hold the light so they can see things a bit more clearly. Sometimes, I shine the light in one direction or another, but they get to choose the route.

If you’re feeling stuck or like you’re running on an empty tank, let’s talk. I don’t claim to know more about what’s “right or wrong” for any person. Deep down, we all know the best solutions for ourselves. Sometimes we need to dig to find this and sometimes we need a boost in confidence to really allow ourselves to heal. I would be honored to help you rediscover your confidence and develop the tools to tackle any problem that comes your way.

FAVORITE SELF-CARE

I enjoy running because I’ve never met a problem that can keep up with me after about 3 miles or so. Also, I love spa treatments – facials, massages, pedicures. These require me to quiet my mind and relax.

FUN FACTS

  • I love to travel, and I have someone special in my life who I visit in Germany as often as I can.
  • I am in the process of remodeling an older house and this process is taking much longer than I expected.
  • I enjoy watching all sports! My kids are young adults now and since I can’t watch them play any longer, I focus my attention on watching all sorts of sports either in person or on TV – youth, college, professional, Olympics – you name it.

LIFE MOTTO

  • Everything is figureoutable.
