I am a Jungian Certificated Psychotherapist. You will hear the language of Self, Shadow, Anima, Animus and Individuation. Depth Psychology is interested in all ages. All Peoples. All Understandings. "How does it work?" people ask. By making the Unconscious, Conscious. Therapist and patient become curious together, about your life. Psychotherapy is the inner journey towards understanding ourselves. Your journey. By making conscious our unconscious (often complicated) feelings, we project them less onto the world and less onto others. This process, brings self acceptance and peace to the soul. I look forward to sitting with you.
Many events in life bring us into therapy. Loss, Transitions, Trauma, Stressors, our Health. We come to a crossroads, not knowing which way is the right way. In Depth Psychology we sort through our feelings, values, and what essentially matters to us. This brings clarity, and we begin to trust the signs of our life, no matter what the challenges have become.
My interests are Comparative Religion and Jungian Studies. I am a musician, which helps me support the Creative in you and your journey. Please call me anytime, and I will get back to you within 24 hours. I offer a free phone consult so that we might discern if I would be the right therapist for you. If I am not, I will do my best to provide 3 referrals.

Kriss is kind and calm and very thought provoking in her approach to therapy. I really enjoy that our sessions make me do some deeper soul searching and it's not just someone listening, she triggers new ideas and perspectives to improve our own approach to our issues. Looking forward to the growth that comes with having a great therapist like Kriss.

I am gay, Kriss is not! I find her gentle way and acceptance of me/my life extremely comfortable, which initially surprised me. Her expertise as as therapist along with the depth of her being/soul make her ideal for me. I am 79 but could be 49 ! Would not matter! Thanks Kriss!

Kriss has been a godsend to me in the journey I am on to deal with being a caregiver to a spouse with cancer. She had also brought amazing insight to some of my background that is helping me feel renewed in spite of the difficult circumstances I am currently living through. I am very grateful for her support and wisdom

I wasn’t completely sure about the experience going into it, but Kriss immediately created a safe and grounded space for me to process my experiences. She’s educated, kind and a pleasure to work with.
