Kristen Coltrin, LMSW

Age group: Children, Adolescents & Emerging Adults

Location:  Marsing Schools & Caldwell 

Interests: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Crisis/Suicidal Ideation, LGBTQ+

Therapies: ACT, DBT, Play Group, Solution Focused, EMDR

    I am Kristen Coltrin, and I am a proud graduate of Northwest Nazarene University with a master’s in social work, specializing in community mental health and addictions. The theory I most align with is Systems Theory - which basically means that I believe there are many factors that lead to the way we think and interact with the world. Biology, upbringing, friends, culture, where we live – all these things contribute to our experience. Learning is always on my agenda as I try to keep up with new research and modes of therapy. There is no “one size fits all” theory, so I like to cater sessions to your needs and preferences.

    I have extensive experience in crisis management and suicide prevention, having worked and volunteered for the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. I am happy to be a resource for suicide prevention education and have been providing introductory training for clergy/church leaders to help congregation members who suffer from depression and/or suicidal thoughts. I have also provided therapy in schools, inpatient and outpatient mental health facilities, and drug, alcohol, and eating disorder rehabilitation facilities.  My office is a safe place for you to express your thoughts and challenges. I believe that we can work together to create a healthier mindset and awareness of your strengths and values, which will help you lead a more satisfying life and improve your relationships with others.
