The field of health and wellness has been her world for almost three decades, and her work has evolved exponentially, taking her on many paths- personally, academically, and professionally. Cristen is dedicated to holding space for others to be seen and heard, promoting self-discovery, inspiration, growth, and positive change.
Cristen’s on-ramp to discovering her calling was a hybrid of her passions, including fitness, nutrition, dance, and creative arts. As a young adult she began an extensive career advocating for the therapeutic benefits of community recreation, eager and ready to help others embrace healthy living. Cristen quickly became intrigued by constant self-sabotaging behaviors (her own, as well as noticing the repeating patterns of her clients), and back to school she went to earn a Master’s Degree in Human Behavior to gain deeper knowledge of the mind.
Ultimately, Cristen’s own personal healing journey has been the guiding force leading her to explore, study, and apply a variety of techniques throughout her profession and was the inspiration to start her personal business, Balanced Bluebird Healing LLC. After struggling with grief for years, her focus shifted to energy psychology, and with a profound understanding of the interconnectedness of our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual bodies she began to utilize a multi-faceted approach to optimize happiness, vitality, and well-being. Throughout her studies, she has obtained a vast portfolio of additional specialty certications to continue adding to her toolkit, including Art Therapy, Spiritual Coach, Master NLP Practitioner, and Clinical Hypnosis for Therapy and Healing, to name a few. Cristen values her education, training, and professional experience, but strongly believes it is undeniable that credentials pale in comparison to her greatest teacher- life.
Cristen keeps her light shining through her dedication to her own personal development and is committed to assisting others rediscover their light. She believes that holistically, genuine therapy involves guiding clients to access the truth that already resides within themselves. This is empowering, putting them in touch with their strengths, and allowing them to gently release the limitations that are preventing them from living life fully.
