Kriston Nixon, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with dynamic experiences working with individuals, couples, and families. I have specialized training in the treatment of perinatal mental health (to include mood and anxiety disorders throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period, traumatic birth experiences, infertility, and pregnancy/infant loss), couples and family therapy (including non-traditional relationships), LGBTQ+ issues, and play therapy.

I approach counseling collaboratively with my clients by partnering with them to discover their own paths to optimal mental health and growth, which includes tailoring my treatment approaches to the unique needs of each client. I often utilize integrated counseling techniques, such as mindfulness-based strategies, art and play along with more traditional approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and narrative therapy, to help clients reach their counseling goals.

When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my family and friends, be outdoors and cook! I am also currently working toward a PhD.
