MEET KRISTEN

I believe that connection is at the core of building a healing and therapeutic relationship. As a counselor I will bring a sense of curiosity, compassion and warmth to our sessions and work we do together.  I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. Through a variety of therapeutic modalities, and listening to your individual needs, together we will create a peaceful environment for healing and growth to occur.

 

I hold my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Wilderness Therapy, from Naropa University. I work with individuals to ease daily stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, disordered eating and negative body image and self talk. I have years of experience working with individuals and families in and out of wilderness settings.

 

I am certified Body Trust Provider candidate, and specialize in disordered eating and positive body image work. My goal is to help you create a healthy relationship with food and your body. We will work to find strength to reclaim your body's individual needs including, hunger, fullness, satisfaction and pleasure. I emphasizes Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, mindfulness based practices, and joyful movement.

 

I am the founder of Wild and Weightless, an organization with a mission to promote positive body image and confidence through outdoor adventures and mentorship. Trips are offered throughout the year! You can learn more about Wild and Weightless here.
