Kristen Frosio.jpeg

Dr. Frosio is a dedicated, proactive, and enthusiastic psychologist passionate about providing evidence-
based, integrated, and flexible psychological services to adults with enduring and complex mental health
conditions. Dr. Frosio is committed to collaboration, transparency, and understanding the whole person
she works with. She is experienced in assessment (standardized assessment, clinical interviews, and risk
assessment), formulation, and treatment of adults with complex mental health needs. Her clinical
training focused on cognitive behavioral interventions, which allow an integration of different
therapeutic modalities and draw on an extensive evidence-base. As a person with Native American
heritage and identity, she understands and values ‘other ways of knowing’, and often incorporates a
‘two-eyed seeing’ approach into her clinical praxis.

Dr. Frosio enjoys spending time with family, cooking new recipes, learning her Native language
(kirikirʔi:s), attending ceremonies, and sitting outside in a little bit of sun and a little bit of shade.
