Approach to treatment

Kristen has an insight-based approach to treatment, centered around the deeper understanding of psyche as Soul. Using techniques from depth psychology such as Active Imagination and working with Deep Imagination, she guides those she works with into direct experience with their own inner resources and deeper knowings through inner dialogue, images, symbols, and metaphor. Kristen believes in the spiritual, creative nature of human beings, and is passionate about helping individuals align with the fullest expression of their unique gifts and potential. 

A long-time practitioner of yoga, Kristen completed her 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2014, and iRest Yoga Nidra Level 1 Teacher training in 2018, for additional dimensions to incorporate into her therapeutic work. She also obtained certification in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy in 2020 and is currently pursuing her doctorate in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Depth Psychology at Meridian University.
