Hello, I am Kristia Britt-Orr. I am a Christian. I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a purposeful servant. My call at a very young age was to do just this–to be a psychotherapist and serve God through serving His beloved, no matter what. I never had a plan B.
I was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia as an infant (no worries–I’m great now). I tell you this because I wanted you know how passionate I am about allowing God to use me however He chooses. I fought this terminal disease not knowing how long I would be “here.” I pushed through my undergraduate studies and two schools concurrently during my graduate studies. It would have been worth ALL of the hard work if I was a therapist for just one day and the good Lord called me home. Well, that did not happen and with over 20 strong years of practicing, I am still here loving and honoring the call–to help people Heal, Grow, and Thrive through Psychotherapy, Christian Counseling, Coaching, and Online Classes (coming soon).
Working with me is easy. You will find me to be nonjudgmental, personable, easy to talk to, and appropriately humorous. During my graduate studies, the two schools I attended concurrently allowed me to study both Christian Counseling and Clinical Psychology. I began my practice in 1998 serving clients regardless of their faith.
I want to help you thrive, which may result from emotional healing, personal development, wellness, and/or spiritual growth. We are at different places in our journey and I am smart and wise enough to know there is no cookie-cutter way to get there; our roadblocks are different. I start off with loving you enough to hear you, be present, listen more, pray for you and God’s direction (whether or not I say this out loud–not all of my clients are Christians and that is completely ok), and then we roll up our sleeves and work.
I invite you to peruse this site and contact me if you have further questions I may answer for you. Thank you for allowing the possibility of serving you.
