Chris is the Executive Director at Light of the Rockies. She’s thankful for the wonderful team of professional Christian Counselors we have and also grateful to see God at work in the lives of the people we serve!
She began seeing clients in 1998 and has worked with families, couples, children and individuals who are interested in becoming healthier individuals. Following her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Child Development from Western Washington University, she received her Master’s Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from George Fox University in Oregon.
Chris specializes in marriage enrichment and communication work for couples, parenting work, helping people heal from sexual abuse, eating disorders, working with anxiety, and play therapy for children. She also works with people struggling with grief, depression and family of origin issues. She enjoys working with missionary families and children and those in ministry.
With the experience of seeing families and children in therapy over the years, Chris has begun doing reunification therapy for families which addresses a breach or lack of unity between a parent and child, where the parents are divorced or living apart. It may be sought by the parents or ordered by the court.
Chris and her husband Rob have been married for more than 20 years and they have four children. They attend church together with their children at Vintage City Church, where Chris is involved in the prayer ministry.
Chris does supervision for other counselors who are working toward becoming licensed. Group supervision and individual supervision are available for therapists, whether they are on staff with Light of the Rockies, or in a separate counseling practice.
