"Having known Dr. Kristen Hick for nearly the last decade, I have been fortunate enough to watch the passion (at some points, literally watching at her side) and focus this psychologist takes in caring for her clients, everyday. She demonstrates an unswerving commitment to traveling difficult terrain with some highly sensitive and injured people, while always adhering to the professional ethics of our discipline. Helping to navigate the difficult straits of close relationships—with some who are stuck in a fatiguing churn of online dating, the painful process of a break-up or divorce, or with others too gun shy from trauma and pain to even begin to engage in becoming vulnerable through relationships—is an area Dr Hick has become expert in over her career. As a result of her attention to this area of everyday life, she now possesses a highly attuned and expansive vocabulary for the patterns she has seen emerge in her clients. The result of all this focus on relationships? A way to help adults, longing for relationships of substance and safety, create new, healthier relationship patterns as they go through their lives."
