Kristen Lynn Herriman, LPC, NBCC
Preferred Name: Kristen
I am a person centered therapist. I view my role as the copilot in your journey. While you pilot the plane, I am here to troubleshoot, offer help and guidance and be an important member of your team. We all go through trauma and difficult times. The right teammate can make all the difference. I'd be honored to help you through these experiences to heal your hurt and make you more capable of having more joy in your life.
Education & Experience
I completed my Masters Degree in Professional Counseling in 1998 from Central Michigan University. My undergraduate degree was also from Central Michigan University and it was in Education. I do have a second Masters Degree from Grand Valley State University in Education with a focus on Leadership. I spent 17 years in a school and community college setting as a guidance counselor (with other roles added in). I worked at every level from pre-school through college aged students. I also assisted families during this time. When I "semi-retired" in June of 2020 I made the leap to private practice. I love private practice and the ability to focus on my clients without "extra duties." I only do telehealth therapy, but EMDR can be done very successfully this way. I was trained virtually and have used the technique both in person and virtually and have seen the power of it in both settings.
