More About Me

About Me

Hi, I'm Kris - and I would love to learn about you and your interests and applications for Motivatonal Interviewing.  I live in Oak Creek, Wisconsin with my husband Bob. son Jacob and an ever-changing census of pets.  I hold a BA in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, with an emphasis in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.  I earned a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.   Most of my work history is in the field of Mental Health - in a Community Support Program serving persons with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder), most of whom had co-occurring Substance Abuse disorders.  The agency for which I work also extensively serves other at-risk populations including persons involved with corrections or reintegrating into the community from jail or prison systems.  Working with these populations provides a rich opportunity for the application of MI principles and strategies with persons often NOT approached with attitudes like respect and partnership, and even less with interest in their own values, needs, desires, and gifts.  I feel absolutely honored with the gift of opportunity to help bring an MI approach to working with these unique persons, and any small part I can play in helping them find and follow their unheard voices.
