Krista Kopchick, LMSW
Surviving, much less thriving, can be a daunting journey in life. The complexities we face in our day to day lives are astounding, and many of us do it alone. The expectations placed on us by ourselves, our friends, families, and culture are overwhelming and suffocating at times. Not only are we continually learning about ourselves, who we are, how we are wired, and how our past impacts our present; but we are also navigating countless relationships and adjusting to life’s constant flow of changes and transitions. When difficulties arise in any of these areas, we have an opportunity to grow and change into a more whole and authentic self.
As a therapist, it is Krista’s honor to walk alongside of her clients on this daunting journey. She deeply values the therapeutic relationship and wants each person who comes into her office to feel seen, heard and understood. It is imperative that the therapist and client work together as a team to pursue health, wholeness, and a meaning-filled life. The daunting journey can become an exhilarating and fulfilling one.
Krista is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, grateful to be working part-time at Pine Rest while also raising two young children at home.
