Meredith Kriz, LPC-S

Meredith Kriz is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor with more than a decade of experience. She is dedicated and passionate about her work. Meredith’s love for being a therapist has led her to an array of interests, including working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions, trauma and spiritual issues. Meredith also sees a number of couples wanting to work on the challenges in their relationship. She typically works within the frameworks of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

While Meredith does have a background in faith and is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination, she does not have an “agenda” with clients or push them to her way of thinking on spiritual issues. On the contrary, she uses this background to create a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere of safety. She is comfortable incorporating the client’s faith in their sessions if they choose.

Meredith’s practice is an all-inclusive environment, and her goal is to create a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere where people can heal. Meredith loves helping clients reach their potential and be emotionally strong.
