Kirsten Thayer, LLMSW



Limited Licensed Master Social Worker


Online, Saginaw

Hello, my name is Kirsten. I offer both in person and telehealth sessions. My passion is working with adults navigating life’s challenges. I believe therapy is all about your choices, starting with your choice of clinician. Your choices are always at the center of the process. Meeting you where you’re at and supporting you through your growth moving forward is important to me. Seeking acceptance through growth can be beneficial, and it can be difficult. I try to support finding a balance. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, or simply seeking self-improvement, I’m here to provide a supportive space for exploration and healing. My goal as a clinician is to help you figure out what works best for you, fostering self-compassion along the way. Together, we will navigate the complexities of growth and change—it’s hard, but you are not alone!
