Kristen “Kris” is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board-Certified Clinical Supervisor in the Commonwealth of Virginia. 

Kris began providing clinical services in 2003, working primarily with children and their families and then transitioned to working with young adults. While practicing in South Carolina, Kris developed a strong interest and skill set providing trauma-informed care during her work with young adults which led to pursuing a doctoral degree at Virginia Tech. During her doctoral work, she interned at the Virginia Tech college counseling center and worked as a crisis clinician for the local Community Services Board.

These professional experiences led to Kris' current professional pursuits. Kris began working at the University of Richmond’s Counseling and Psychological Services (“CAPS”) in 2011 and currently serves as the Assistant Director of Clinical Services. She serves as a member of the CAPS leadership team providing oversight of the administrative, clinical, crisis coordination, and consultative functions of CAPS as well as the planning, development and implementation of CAPS policies and initiatives. She currently serves as the supervisor for Peer Support Specialists, several CAPS staff members, and LPC residents in training (when on staff). She serves as the liaison for the Center for Sexual Assault and Response, Student Health Center, UR police department and is a core member of the Threat Assessment Team. She has maintained her role as a crisis clinician and serves as a mental health consultant on the Hostage Negotiations team for Henrico County and the Disaster Behavioral Health Team of Virginia.

Kris has extensive experience treating anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar/mood disorders, PTSD and ADHD. She is a generalist with a background in trauma-informed and systems focused care and specializes in working with trauma survivors and those in crisis.  Kris infuses aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness into her work with clients. She believes clients are the authors of their own stories and strives to connect and promote the development of self-awareness and self-compassion. Through her work at Virginia Tech and the University of Richmond, Kris has developed an affinity for working with young adults and is excited to extend this expertise at RRP, LLC to adults ages 18 and above as she continues to maintain her clinical and leadership roles at CAPS.
