About Me

Hello!
I am a Clinical Professional Counselor, licensed in Nevada. I specialize in trauma and abuse recovery, anxiety, depression, and anger management. Additionally, I am skilled in helping individuals who are struggling with relationship issues, work/employment issues, chronic physical health issues, aging-related problems, and faith-based needs.

I use a “person-centered” approach, meaning I see my clients as whole beings that already hold the answers they need. It is my job to help my clients discover their answers and make choices they believe will be best for them. It is my belief that I can only accomplish that by first meeting my clients exactly where they are, with no judgement. I am deeply honored to be in a position of helping to hold my clients’ pain while creating a safe place for my clients to explore their needs, shed old labels, heal old wounds, and create new paths.

I began my journey as a Life Coach in 2000, where I focused on helping people with goal mapping, professional and personal goal setting, workplace conflict resolution, and work/life balance. I deeply enjoyed this work, and wanted to do more, on a higher level. I returned to school after raising my children so I could focus on obtaining my degrees in counseling related programs. I achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services Management, and followed that with completing my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Additionally, I hold certifications in trauma-based counseling therapy approaches.

I have enjoyed serving my community in various roles including teaching classes on healthy boundaries, anger management, and how to help others through faith based coaching. I have led trauma recovery groups, substance abuse recovery groups, and faith based growth groups.

I look forward to partnering with you in your healing or growth journey!

I've been working with Krista for just a few weeks and she has helped me in areas including anxiety, perfectionism, workaholism and co-dependency. She's been very supportive in providing resources and strategies for building a strong and healthy relationship with myself.

Always prompt responses. Multiple ways to communicate. Knowledgeable responses. Calm while I repeat some of the same things over and over. Helpful. Insightful.

Krista and I have not discussed other means of communication. I told her, early on, that texting works well for me as it gives me time to process my thoughts and her responses. I am very pleased with how quickly she was able to identify my needs and set me on a path to recovery. I’m so very grateful!

I instantly connected with Krista. I feel very comfortable talking to her and don’t hold back. She is very knowledgeable and does not interrupt and helps me find a solution that best fits the problem. She has me work on things - do a homework assignment but in a good way:) she truly has given me tools to navigate through the grief journey I am on. I always look forward to our sessions.

Very Knowledgeable, Kind, and transparent. As an Afro American Woman I was unsure if she would understand my issues and as a military person I was hesitant as well. She is very knowledgeable and understanding highly recommended her!

Written by A.N. on Mar 12, 2020 after counseling with Krista for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and parenting issues

When I first began talk-therapy with Krista Lacroix I was in a really bad place. I bottled up so much things for years that I finally thought I was going to shatter. Krista Lacroix listened to me and gave me great advice, she's helping me out every day. Krista Lacroix I am grateful to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Written by M.A. on Feb 22, 2020 after counseling with Krista for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Krista honestly has been very helpful and insightful. She has given me a bunch if information to look at for anger management and addiction and has also informed me of services that can help with my addiction issues. I think she is absolutely wonderful.

I believe that Dr. Krista Lacroix is the actual angel God destined to speak to my heart during this time in my life. I don’t think she was miscellaneously assigned to me just because she had an open time slot. There is something accurate and genius about the algorithm and personal care that is used by BetterHelp to help connect people. I have grown so much and healed quite a bit too since I signed up and showed up ready to be vulnerable and consistent.

Krista makes me feel heard, and supports what I need, when I need it. She is a good example of healthy boundaries and gives perspective and counsel in areas I am not strong in.

Written by H.A. on Feb 19, 2020 after counseling with Krista for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Krista has been extremely helpful in educating me about depression and stress and how to navigate these challenges with my partner. She provides very specific feedback and resources. She has allowed me to come to my own conclusions while also stepping in with explicit advice at key times. Krista is prompt with messaging throughout the week between phone/video/chat sessions. Her expertise in and passion for counseling shines!

Written by K.I. on Feb 18, 2020 after counseling with Krista for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and trauma and abuse

Krista has been helpful in guiding me with my issues. Sometimes I'm not quite ready to do the work and need more counseling or perhaps I need to understand why I may behave in certain ways and I haven't always felt like I get that need addressed. I feel like if I understood why I behave in certain ways, I could more easily do the work necessary.
