Professional Background

Kristin Davin worked with a diverse population that provided her an opportunity to expand her skills, expertise, and knowledge. This population included working with the disenfranchised in North Philadelphia at an outpatient primary care setting (treating co-morbidity, addiction, financial and family stress, food scarcity), to people suffering from addictions (drug and alcohol) both individually and running groups. She has also worked with a psychiatry team evaluating patients in the ER as well as Toxicology providing emergency evaluations to assess their mental health.

For the past eleven years, her scope of practice has focused primarily on helping individuals and couples overcome challenging and destructive relationship issues and patterns, moving through life transitions (separation/divorce, having children), difficult work dynamics with a focus on improving their EQ in the workplace (through assessments and coaching).

As the focus of her practice has changed, so has her approach. Although her training focused primarily on Cognitive Behavior Therapy, it has been through her work and additional trainings did she begin to expand her treatment approach to include Emotionally Focused Therapy (with a focus on Attachment Theory), Solution Focused Therapy, and Family of Origin work.

Taking an integrative approach allows her to meet each client where they are while providing direction, insight, and collaboration. She also values the challenges that she has experienced personally (divorce/remarriage/stepchild, domestic violence, relocation, and family strife) and uses these experiences when appropriate to connect on a deeper level with others and provide much-needed guidance and direction while asking the necessary questions so people can begin to move out of their comfort zone and ultimately into a place of improved emotional and mental health.
