At Comprehensive Wellness, we enjoy working with a diverse team of clinicians to bring our patients the most comprehensive care in the area. Over the course of the next few months, we will be introducing you to each member of our clinical staff to share with you, our patients, more of what makes us love what we do. Today, we introduce Kristin Avicolli, LCSW.
What is your current role at Comprehensive Wellness?
I am a mental health clinician at Comprehensive Wellness. I have been working here since we first opened our doors in 2017.
What do you like best about your role?
I truly love what I do! I feel humbled and honored to be able to support people in the way that best works for them.
What drew you to your current role?
I went through an intense experience and was fortunate to have the support of many people along the way. I am grateful for the work I get to do with people each day. I believe people already have what it takes to heal, they may simply need a little help in accessing their strength and courage.
What about Comprehensive Wellness drew you to join our practice? What do you feel makes Comprehensive Wellness special?
The comprehensive model allows us to treat the whole person. We can collaborate instantly and treat both the mind and body. The fatigue people experience having to navigate multiple systems is alleviated. The practitioners at Comprehensive Wellness are passionate about what they do and it shows. The staff is responsive and kind. I feel very fortunate to be able to serve my clients in this innovative way.
Tell us a bit about yourself—something we might not know.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, however, spent many years in other states. I went to college in Seattle, worked at a ski resort in Colorado and started our family in Philadelphia. I have three children, a spouse, a Bernese mountain dog, and because we didn’t have enough going on, we just recently just added an English bulldog!
Is there anything else you would like to share with our patients?
I am grateful to all of our patients for their willingness to seek care with our practice. I am always open to feedback and hope we can be a safe, comforting place for you and your family to land. We appreciate your trust in caring for both your physical and mental health needs.
