INDIVIDUALS + RELATIONSHIPS OF ALL CONFIGURATIONS

MY COUNSELING SERVICES

There are many ways to begin therapy. We will work together and explore your goals and hopes for engaging in counseling and make a decision on how best to start our healing work together. I will work with you to find ways to embody healing that meet you where you are at and support you and your process.
In my practice I work with individuals, relationships of all configurations (married, partners, poly, open…), families (bio and chosen), and various groups (work, activist, communal living, bands, art based collaborations, collectives).
I integrate an embodied approach to counseling. This can look very different for different people in different contexts and there is not one single way to engage in embodied healing work.

Love is the big booming beat which covers up the noise of hate.

–Margaret Cho

ANTI-RACIST AND COLLECTIVE LIBERATION CENTERED

WHAT I BELIEVE

I believe in a strength-based, embodied, and politicized approach to therapy that integrates anti-racist and collective liberation centered sensibilities to psychology and counseling approaches.
I believe that people do not live nor do we heal in isolation. Our families, society, personal experiences, work environments, home life, and the economic, social, and political systems we live in all inform who and how we are in the world, our experiences, access to various resources, and approaches to healing.
Breathe in…breathe deep…a life time is too long to sleep.

–Steve Von Till

WRITER + ARTIST + ACTIVIST

ABOUT CRISTIEN

I am a writer, artist, and activist, all of which inform my healing work. I believe art is foundational to healing, wellness, social change, and developing the practice of imagining and working towards collective liberation.
I am a founding member and former Executive Director of Home Alive, a Seattle arts-based anti-violence organization. At Home Alive I worked to develop community based anti-violence, self-defense, and boundary setting curricula and programs that address the broad scope of how oppression, violence, trauma, and abuse inform the structures of our relationships, our organizations, and our movements for collective liberation.

Let the music move your soul.
