About Kristine Proctor, MSW, LCSW

Kristine Proctor, Counseling DeLand Therapist for Mental Health Volusia County

Hello, I’m Kristine. As a licensed clinical social worker, I have had the privilege of working with many individuals and families over the past 25 years. I know that every person is unique and I will work to meet you where you are in your process of addressing life’s challenges.

My perspective is one of ‘person in environment’ which means that my approach to assisting you is holistic, including all aspects of your life – emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. Treatment incorporates an understanding of normal psychological development, as well as attention to social/relational, multicultural, and biological factors in working collaboratively with you to create effective ways to meet your personal, relationship, and mental health goals.

Everything in our lives is interconnected and being able to create wanted change in one area will inevitably affect other parts, as well. Being able to work through your challenges with this understanding will enable the assurance that as many issues currently impacting you are addressed and that the coping strategies you develop are the best options for your continued health and well-being after therapy is complete.

My approach to counseling others is integrative and strengths-based. I will help you to identify your areas of strength and to access resources from within yourself and your community to support your overall resilience.

As a therapist, my experience includes helping people as they work through various life stages and transitions such as divorce or loss of a significant other, parenting, disrupted attachments, LGBTQ issues, academic concerns, ongoing or critical health issues, abuse, job loss, and end of life concerns. I have special interest in working with those who experience anxiety and with survivors of trauma.
