Kristi Cronan | Alpharetta

Associate Professional Counselor

Raising children is one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet, but it is also one of the hardest. There are times parents understand that their child has experienced something adverse and that therapy services are needed. However, children most often show their parents they need help through their behaviors, and it is easy to misattribute those behaviors to a difficult phase the child will simply grow out of. It is okay to need help determining the extent of your child’s struggles and to utilize therapy services to help them (and you!) find relief.

As a child, adolescent, and parenting therapist, Kristi partners with families to restore balance, correct troublesome behaviors, and promote resiliency throughout the family system. She is passionate about combining principles from neurological growth and development with play therapy, creative-expressive therapy, sand tray therapy, parent coaching, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for children ages 4–18 and parents of all ages. She also provides faith-based interventions upon request. Reach out to Kristi directly at (770) 653-7849 to schedule a free phone consultation.
