About me

Hi, my name is Kristi Skeem, and have been in Counseling for over 15 years. I have a doctorate degree in business. 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 in correctional institutions, mental health agencies, and drug/alcohol agencies. I also am a conference speaker for public and private 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 preserve through. I provide support for those struggling in their interpersonal relationships, preparing for relationships, or even restoring the relationship with 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 typically 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 back 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 personally have a licensed in mental health/school/ and addiction counseling. I have my doctorate in Business with an emphasis in Industrial /Organizational Psychology. Therefore, if you are struggling in your business told, leaders, leadership, or other aspects of career growth; I can support that. If you struggle with fear of facing daily life or the after life, let me help you. I see my role here with you as a place of service, and I have a gift of helping others through their circumstances, with what I have learned in my training over the years. I invite you to come along in the therapy journey and see what can be discovered about your purpose in making meaning in this life.

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.

Kristi always makes me feel safe and supported. I’ve been able to tell her things I haven’t told anyone else. I always leave our sessions feeling better about my situation and myself.

I have loved talking with Kristi. She sets goals for me and really supports me in meeting those goals. I have noticed a big change in myself since I started talking with her and I look forward to our weekly sessions.
