Hi, I’m Christen. I’m a couples counselor, family therapist, individual therapist , life coach and relationship coach. I aim to help you increase your self-understanding, discover your strengths, and pivot into a more satisfied place in your relationships. My approach and style is non-judgemental and empathetic. I am down to earth, and will encourage humor and authenticity.
My integrative relational approach utilizes evidence-based Emotion Focused Therapy, the Gottman Method, and offers experiential learning. I work with clients from across the lifespan and from all cultural backgrounds using a strengths-based focus. I have extensive experience working with first responders, military personnel and families, and I have experience working as a first responder myself. If faith or spirituality are a resource in your life, I am happy to offer a faith based process.
Couples Counseling, Family Therapy, and Relationship Coaching
Through marriage counseling or relationship coaching, I can help you enhance connection, attunement, and intimacy in your relationship.
I work with couples through a culturally responsive lens, and I have worked alongside many interracial couples, as well as people in cross-cultural relationships, and LGBTQ+ couples. We shall collaborate to bolster your trust after betrayal, navigate through conflict, and refine the process of repair. I strive to guide couples to improve communication, strengthen emotional safety, and feel closer to each other. I will heighten your empathy and understanding for each other in our work together.
I shall help you enhance family dynamics, whether you want to develop parenting skills, improve emotional regulation, or navigate blended family dynamics.
In coaching, I can help you increase your self-awareness, set viable goals, and stay on track to achieve them.
I offer life coaching, relationship, premarital coaching, and parent coaching. Whether you want to improve your connection with your partner, increase healthy interactions with your kids, or tackle any life goal, I provide action-orientated guidance, encouragement, and experience to help you find success.
In individual therapy, we will explore your cultural context, family of origin, past experiences, and the ways they have shaped your present so you can cultivate a healthier, more satisfying future. I have experience with neurodiverse clients across the lifespan.
In therapy, I can help you:
- Manage the symptoms of anxiety or depression
- Reduce and manage stress
- Improve your resilience tools and mindset
- And more.
I offer individual therapy online to residents of Colorado and in-person at our Cherry Creek offices.
