She works to meet the client where they are and creates a safe place for exploration and self-compassion, paying special attention to creativity, and inherent human potential. Kristen Beau has worked extensively with individuals, families and groups struggling with depression and anxiety, survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, struggles with identity or changing phases of life, grief counseling, and addiction. Additionally, she is passionate about prevention and education with mental health concerns and how we can better connect and care for ourselves and others. In her free time she enjoys exploring the rocky mountains, meditating, writing, photography, and spending time with her family.
