Krista holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Communications from Jamestown College in North Dakota and received her Master’s in Community Counseling Licensure in May of 2011 from Denver Seminary. Krista is a member of the National Board of Certified Counselors.
Krista generally adheres to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as she believes the battle truly begins in the mind (“be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2) but also has training in and integrates Existential Therapy, Play Therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) depending on the needs of her clients and what will help them reach their goals. Because of her walk with God, she knows the importance of finding healing for the whole person which includes a person’s physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
Krista’s passion is working with those who have been through trauma but sees clients for a variety of other concerns including, low self-esteem, FASD, depression, anxiety, adolescent struggles (including self-harm), and more. She enjoys walking through life together with her clients, being a support, encouragement and a sounding board to those she interacts with.
When Krista is not at the office she enjoys spending time with God, reading, enjoying time with her husband and baby, talking with friends, and listening to music.
