Who Krista Works With + Krista’s Approach

Krista Knowles

Krista specializes in attachment-based individual therapy with adults struggling with trauma, disordered eating, relationship issues, depression, and anxiety. Krista takes a collaborative, experiential approach with her clients, exploring their core emotions, existential dilemmas, and stuck places so as to help them grow beyond these barriers and instill a felt sense of confidence, and worthiness.

Krista also has a special interest in working with women to gain self-confidence, improve their sense of self-worth, and helping to cultivate their innate sense of femininity. Her unique perspective, which focuses on each individual client in the context of their history, culture, and pivotal life experiences provides a safe space for clients to be seen and known and to know themselves more completely as they grow in the therapy process.

Krista shares the passion of Orlando Thrive Therapy, Coaching and Counseling in her integrative approach to the treatment of mind and body for anxiety, mood issues, and trauma resolution. She uses a variety of modalities in her therapy sessions, such as Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), Humanistic Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), guided imagery, and breathwork. Her approach to therapy is all-inclusive of the entire person, for long-term relief, not just short-term symptom management.

Please contact Krista to find out more about her approach and to schedule an intake appointment and get started today.

Note about insurance: Orlando Thrive Therapy, Coaching, and Counseling is a self-pay practice because we do not believe that your quality of care should be dictated by your insurance company.

Her rates are based on the services you receive and on your unique circumstance.

What to Expect

This will help to determine your overall plan and how often you will need to meet for therapy.

Krista’s rates for a 50-60 minute therapy session are based on the service you receive and will be discussed during your initial contact. Krista offers discount package options and will discuss this with you during your initial appointment. Payment is due at the time of session.
