I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Wyoming with over 30 years of experience.
My family members say that I was born a therapist. Selecting a therapist can be a life altering choice. I happen to know that from a first-hand perspective. We can all benefit from good therapy during difficult life times. Are you feeling emotionally exhausted? If you are feeling isolated, overwhelmed, unappreciated, unloved, stuck, or just not currently satisfied with your life in general, it is probably a good time to enlist a therapist as your partner to resolve these issues.
When I was in graduate school, absolute strangers would walk up to me in the laundromat and start sharing their life stories or ask for my advice. I graduated from Indiana University while a single parent, raising 3 young sons. Now as a parent of 3 adult sons, step parent of 2 adult daughters and grandparent of 6 wonderful children; my husband of 25 years and I continue to enjoy the wonders of a blended family - - as he would say, “we’ve seen it all”.
My therapeutic style is friendly, nurturing and empowering. I have successfully worked with: Individuals, Families, Relationship Issues, Parenting, Senior Life Issues, Depression/Despair, Anxiety, Emotional Abuse, Adjustment & Life Transitions, Divorce & Blended Families, Addictions, ACOA/ co-dependency, Adolescents. I would best describe myself as a catalyst for change and growth.
Long career. . . long list.
I have been trained and worked with multiple modalities: Adlerian, Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic, Existential, Psychodynamic, Rational Emotive and Brief Solution Based Therapy. This is not a “one size fits all” – together, you and I will determine which will work best for you. Think of us as a partnership to discover the real you and to remove obstacles that may be holding you back.
Whatever your age – senior, adult, or adolescent I would enjoy working with you, if you are ready. The “ah-ha” therapeutic moment for me came when a former student shared the “fortune” inside his fortune cookie from dinner the night before, saying “this was obviously meant for you, not me”. The fortune cookie message, which has had permanent residence taped to the top of my computer monitor for over a decade, sums up my personal model for therapy: “You discover treasure where others find nothing unusual.”
Now that I am officially designated as grown-up and no longer challenged with raising my own family, I know that my authentic “happy place” is in one-to-one counseling where I can get to know the treasure that you are.
If you are ready to take that step with me, I am here to support and empower you and look forward to our combined future.
I work with my online clients in the evenings and on weekends. I do check email daily (often several times) and will respond to you within 24 hrs. - - sooner if possible.

Kris is a great therapist! She is attentive and listens with an open mind which is very calming. She was able to see past my defenses and gently helped me realize certain truths about myself and helped me create a plan for the future that would help me feel better internally and also help me better my overall life situation externally. I would definitely recommend her as a counselor, you will not regret it!

Kris is amazing! Having never done therapy before she set my mind at ease and allows me to easily talk and she listens. She’s got a whole wealth of knowledge and expertise and we match very well.

Kristina is very intuitively insightful. Her ability to perceive and point out subtle patterns of behavior, and make obscure connections is impressive. Kristina has been very helpful in assisting me navigate several simultaneous life changing transitions with both great care and great objectivity. Her gentle guidance has become a stabilizing comfort in the chaos of what life can sometimes feel like. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an unbiased listening ear with the added benefit of great advice.
