Some of the concerns she addresses include academic pressure, imposter syndrome, dissertation procrastination, dating/relationship issues, interview/job search stress, depression, and anxiety.
The Gifted and Profoundly Gifted
While intellectual abilities in the gifted are usually recognizable, the emotional and behavioral characteristics that come along with being gifted are often misunderstood. These characteristics can be challenging and lead to an exacerbation of mental health symptoms or a misdiagnosis. Dr. Kress was a liaison for SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted), and has presented workshops for other gifted organizations. She works with gifted and profoundly gifted clients to help them understand their giftedness, modulate emotional intensity and sensitivity, increase self-acceptance, and manage perfectionism.
Spiritual Leaders and Seekers
Dr. Kress has a background in the psychology of spirituality. She provides therapy to spiritual leaders, leaders-in-training, religious scholars, spiritual healers, and spiritual seekers.
