My name is Kristin Nemzer and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I have been working with individuals, couples, and families for over 20 years and I love my work. I hold my license as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California (License MFC 42308) and in the state of Hawaii (License MFT 480). I hold a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in couples and family counseling, from John F. Kennedy University. I have a Certificate in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy and Research from the California Institute of Integral Studies.  I’m also a certified Hypnotherapist with the Professional Board of Hypnotherapy. I received my undergraduate degree from Duke University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with honors.

Additionally, I’ve studied Hypnosis, Shamanic Healing, Buddhist Psychology, Meditation, Energy Medicine, and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy.

I have a counseling practice in Santa Cruz, California where I conduct private sessions both in person and remotely by Zoom, FaceTime or phone. I also teach classes and workshops on many topics related to improving all kinds of relationships. I also teach Birthing Through Hypnosis Natural Childbirth Education classes to clients throughout the world via my online Birthing Through Hypnosis Childbirth Program.

I am happily married and live with my husband and three children in Santa Cruz. Some of my passions include long walks with friends, yoga, shamanic journeying, and singing traditional ceremonial songs.
