Kristy Palacios, LPC, BCPCC

I have lived in Colorado for over 20 years. I am originally from the Midwest where I grew up in a farm community and to this day enjoy spending time working outside and around animals. I have a wonderful husband and three grown children. I spend time with my husband hiking, camping, and hanging out with friends. As much as possible I spend time with my grown children and most recently with my promotion to being a grandparent, I spend as much time as I can with my darling grand daughter and I look forward to meeting my next grand baby due in April! In my spare time, I love to volunteer with horses and donkeys. I have spent much of my adult life as a "Jane of all trades", spending 10 plus years working in the area of law as a paralegal and department manager. I have known for most of my life that I wanted to work in mental health to provide love, support, encouragement, and laughter to the hurt, the lost, and the broken and I have spent many years bringing this dream to pass. Below are my professional credentials for your reading enjoyment and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Education
I earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology and a Masters of Arts in counseling from Colorado Christian University, Lakewood, CO and I have been in private practice for almost 9 years.

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and an approved LPC Supervisor with the State of Colorado (License # 0014014 ), and I am accredited as a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor (BCPCC) with the International Board of Christian Care (IBCC). I hold a number of counseling certifications including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and extensive training in QEEG guided neurotherapy and biofeedback.
