Hi there, I am Kristen and I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner and Licensed Professional Counselor. More specifically I am a person who takes great pleasure in working with people to help them to spark happiness and relieve the stressors in their lives
.I enjoy working with people during all phases of their lives but I have a few areas that I would call my passion areas. These have evolved as a result of my personal experiences as well as the trends from my clients over the years that encouraged me to seek out higher levels of training to best serve them.
I received my Master of Science in Counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2009. Over the last 14 years I have completed many trainings in a variety of areas including perinatal mental health, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Perinatal Mental Health Certification (PMH-C) though Postpartum Support International, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) hypnotherapy, hypnosis, Advanced Enneagram training as well as sex therapy.
Kristen Sanchez, Personally
My husband, Edgar and I are the parents of a blended family of eight adorable and naughty kids aged 8 to 16 who we share raising with their other parents. In this new chapter of our lives I am discovering the things that make me shine. I am exploring my passions and have thus far learned that I love salsa dancing, reading romance and adventure books, traveling and am currently working on learning Spanish.
