Kristin Moorehead-Malley

My name is Kristin Moorehead, I am a licensed therapist and the owner of S.A.G.E. Therapy Center in Carlsbad. I have two beautiful children, and a wonderful husband of 13 years who has been a part of my life for 15… Over my lifetime not only have I had to deal with issues from my childhood… I have also had many other struggles which I have overcome.

For 3 years, I struggled with infertility issues. This issue, which can leave a woman feeling devastated actually transformed my life. Our beautiful daughter was conceived in 2006, our beautiful son was born 2012 and his adoption was finalized in March of this year… making our family full of joy and happiness. Happiness which could not have been found if I had allowed my fears and insecurities to take over.

Life is full of struggles, but… it is how you deal with those struggles that will define you. If you are dealing with past or present struggles, do not allow yourself to do it alone! We are here to help! I developed SAGE Therapy Center with an intent and purpose! At S.A.G.E. Therapy Center, my team of gifted licensed therapists are real people who have gone through many of the same struggles you are experiencing.

As your licensed therapist, I will help you deal with things like anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. I also offer marriage,individual counseling, family therapy, and adolescent counseling. It’s a pleasure and honor to meet you. I started S.A.G.E. Therapy Center because I am passionate about helping individuals like YOU lead a full, and happy life! I am committed to guiding you along a path of happiness, clarity, and growth so that you can achieve the full and happy life YOU DESERVE…
