About me

Hi, my name is Kristi Skeem, and have been in Counseling for over 15 years. I have a bachelors degree in Human Services Mgt., I have a Masters Degree in Counseling, and I have a doctorate degree in Business Administration with Industrial/Organizational Psychology specialization. I have worked with very diverse populations from those who are affluent and influential; and everyone in between. I have worked many years providing counseling inside with correctional populations with minimum, medium and maximum security populations, mental health and drug/alcohol agencies. I also am a public speaker for a variety of settings and events.
I have walked along side of those in the counseling realm that have made life choices and/or committed crimes that shattered their life and others as well. We walk together each week, picking up life pieces, using strengths that still are within them; and starting a new life.
I have also worked with influencers who are working and serving in high levels of our society, those who are in prominent roles, that struggle as other do with anxiety, stress, and transitions. I have worked with stay-at-home moms who are both winning and losing and experiencing feelings of both in their circumstances. Everyone has unique issues based on their personal circumstances, but also unique gifting and personal strengths that will help them to persevere through. I provide support for those struggling in their interpersonal relationships, preparing for relationships, or even restoring the relationship within themselves. I work with the more modern virtual vs reality identity crisis and/or disorders -that currently are not even found in the DSM-V as an official diagnosis. This is individuals who are struggling to find their way understanding their online persona vs their real-life reality. I work with individuals who have sex shame from both sides of victims to aggressors; including working with those who need freedom from pornography or other deviant behaviors.
I use a Cognitive Behavioral approach to brief counseling to tackle life dilemmas. My treatment approach of cognitive behavioral therapy offers empowerment to individuals to take control of their life, understanding how core beliefs are developed, where they come from, and how they are generating thoughts, feelings and behaviors; and ultimately all outcomes. I support business leaders who might be struggling with their leadership, or other aspects of career growth. If you struggle with fear of facing daily life or the after life, let me help you. Existential after life concerns, feeling life's purpose is a huge concern for most individuals. I see my role here with you as a place of service, and I have a gift of helping and healing others through their circumstances. Invite me to come walk along in your journey and see what can be discovered about your purpose in making meaning in this life.

I have learned so much from Kristi and enjoy our weekly sessions. She listens to me , helps me work towards goals and supports me and all my small and big victories. She has completely changed my views on therapy and she’s the reason I stay going.

Therapy with Kristi has been great so far. I was very nervous about reaching out to get the help I need, but she made me feel comfortable instantly. I feel heard, respected and understood during our sessions and I look forward to more.
