Meet our Dream Team
Heya! At Limestone Clinic, our team works together to efficiently help our clients with the concerns that they want to get traction upon. We match you with one of the therapists on our team to join you on your journey to transforming your life.
Our therapists are vetted for skill, approachability, and effectiveness. To be eligible to work with us, they all must have the fundamental skills needed to work with anxiety, depression, and trauma. But, they each have their unique skills and attributes that make them especially great in certain niches, too. We've taken a few moments to provide you with brief descriptions of each staff member's Zones of Genius to help you get a better sense as to our team's diversity of skill and knowledge.
How would we describe our team? They're nice! And smart! And nice! After all, if we don't like having lunch with them, we're not recommending them to you for treatment services. Don't worry. None of us are perfect. And, we're probably just a smidgeon weird. We don't focus on fancy work clothing or perfect hairdos (but we do appreciate good hair days). We show up, as real people, ready to align with you, do the work that results in healing, and cheer you on. We're the Limestone Clinic Team, but we're also Team Frank (if your name is Frank), or Team Gina, or Team Monty... you get the idea.
We're on YOUR team. You're in good hands. Come meet us!
(In case this is also helpful so you don't have to tromp all over the friggin website to get the info you need - the cost for a standard 50-minute counselling session ranges from $150 +tax to $300, depending on the therapy provider.)

Dr. Kris Boksman
Intensive Interventionist, Bad Mood Badass
Clinical Psychologist & Owner, Ph.D., C.Psych.
Dr. Kris is a mom of two very loud and lovable boys. She likes drinking too much coffee, thinking about the exercising she would like to do, and having fun with her hairstyles. Dr. Kris's Jedi-power is quickly getting to the roots of emotional dysregulation problems, and helping people process through these pain points, so she works in an intensive services model--she does not offer weekly ongoing sessions. Dr. Kris treats depression, high-achievers (such as CEOs, lawyers, therapists, doctors, & just-plain-awesome moms). She specializes in trauma recovery, relationship-based trauma experiences, and healing from narcissistic abuse.
