Kristine Cruz, PsyD Adults Psychotherapy

Professional Statement

Dr. Kris Cruz is a licensed psychologist who integrates a variety of modalities to tailor her approach for each unique individual and honor the whole person. Her therapeutic practice emphasizes the cultivation of self-empowerment, resilience, connection, and self-compassion. She works to create a safe, warm space for others to discover, explore, and understand their inner world and the dynamics of their relationships. Dr. Cruz’s collaborative and holistic approach aims to expand her patients’ awareness so they increase their sense of agency and feel better- less symptomatic, more aligned with and kinder to themselves. She also acknowledges social and cultural contexts and recognizes the impact of prejudice and implicit societal messages on mental health. She strives to help her patients tap into their courage, wisdom, and strengths so they can develop greater intimacy with themselves and others and lead more authentic and fulfilling lives.
