Being authentic with others can make us feel vulnerable and seeking help with problems we are experiencing may feel scary. It takes courage! As a therapist, I am dedicated to creating a safe, non-judgmental environment in which clients can journey through problematic pieces of their life, while maintaining and growing a healthy sense of self. I address the client as a multi-facetted individual by being mindful of psychological, physical, social and spiritual components of health and wellness. I work with individual adults, adolescents and couples.
Areas of interest include women's issues, divorce, sexuality and self-actualization. I have experience helping those recovering from domestic violence, toxic faith situations and clients recovering from childhood sexual abuse and trauma. Additional areas of focus include teens, social/emotional issues, personal exploration/processing and life skills.
These are tough topics, but my professional and personal experiences have equipped me to feel confident in walking through the process of healing around those topics with my clients.

Krista Lawless's Groups

"Between Women" Group Series

This series for women consists of three groups lasting 6-8 weeks in duration per group. My "Restoring Self Through Therapeutic Writing" group promotes healing, growth and validation through creative writing. "Healthy Boundaries for Peace and Wellbeing" focuses on defining and discussing healthy boundary setting in all types of relationships. Finally, the "Love, Intimacy and Life" group will explore the individual nature of healthy sexuality, reducing sexual shame and examining cultural messages about female sexuality. All groups are designed to be inclusive of all belief systems and individual values, creating a non-judgmental, supportive and confidential environment.
