Many people have different definitions for success. It could be attaining personal goals for prestige and wealth, or balancing career and family life in a healthy way. Unfortunately, many people can climb the highest mountains of  success and upon reaching the summit wonder why they are still empty and hurting inside. Others have expansive dreams of what lives they want to lead and the legacy they want to leave, but they are paralyzed by the hole in their souls. Still others have issues with anger they are unable to control, or may be struggling with the aftermath of a parent that created an atmosphere of terror in their homes.  Some live with the trauma of abusive spouses and others live with the shame of alcohol.  Often we are trapped by the shame of troubled marriages, abusive childhoods, substance abuse and/or traumatic events in our lives that interfere with living our best lives and being the people that we know we can be.


Living Well Counseling and Consulting wants to accompany you on the journey to finding joy, peace and fulfillment from the inside out. We offer personal counseling services and support for married couples, individual men, women, and young adults age 16 and up.  Living Well offers a compassionate counseling approach for individuals traumatized through abuse or violence of any kind. Wounded warriors or victims of sexual violence will find a safe and healing environment in which to recover. We help people re-discover who they are at the core of their beings, and how the hurts and wounds they have carried through life really do impact their present day life. Kriss’s specialty is trauma, which includes PTSD, Anxiety and Panic Disorders as well as Adult Children of Alcoholics and survivors of parents with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder.



Living Well features individualized therapy for those seeking assistance:


For All Clients


One Hour Individual Sessions Clients seeking assistance find this format is accepted for insurance purposes and LWCC is happy to bill your insurance company for services rendered in this format.


Natural Health Based Treatment:   Although medication has its place, it is always good to start with more natural forms of treatment.  From a naturopathic standpoint, clients are offered more natural alternatives for stress and anxiety as well as access to hormone and neuro-transmitter testing if desired.  


For Trauma Related Issues

For information on EMDR go here


EMDR Therapy:  EMDR is an evidence based, effective therapy to deal with stress, anxiety, PTSD, abuse issues, depression, anger and a variety of individualized issues.  We've found that there are good results when EMDR is combined with prayer. Often more is accomplished in this personal counseling format by a trained counselor than weeks of sit-down, talk-it-out therapy sessions.


5 Narrative CBT Model: This model works through specific trauma memories from beginning to end while teaching the client how to remain in a relaxed state.  It effectively helps to neutralize emotional responses and triggers to specific trauma related circumstances, both past and present. 



Cost: Cost for counseling and consultation is assessed at a rate of $110.00 per hour for sessions billed to insurance and $80.00 per hour for sessions not covered by insurance.
