About

Hello, I am Krista. I have been a visitor on the unceded and traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples since 2018. My family originally settled in Saskatchewan, on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional territory of Cree Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation, where I was born and raised until I moved to the United States to complete my graduate training.

My pronouns are she and her.

I completed my Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology at Adler University in 2019 and I am registered with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia.

Counselling approach

I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults of diverse backgrounds in various settings, including an inpatient psychiatric hospital, forensic/criminal justice organization, community mental health, and a therapeutic day school.

My counselling approach draws from a number of different orientations (CBT, mindfulness, psychodynamic/relational) to tailor therapy to each individual client and their unique needs. I also believe in the importance of understanding how our past experiences and relationships can impact us, and how we can use the therapeutic alliance to explore and understand ourselves and others.

Areas of interest

  • Anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and related concerns (including body-focused repetitive behaviours)
