Me and My office

 My name is Kris Anderson, I am an LAMFT (Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist). I graduated from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota in Minneapolis with my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and earned my Bachelor's degree from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul. 

My passion for this field and helping others started with my own personal therapy experience 10 years ago, when I was struggling in my marriage and with my own self esteem that resulted in a binge eating disorder. Through the journey of individual and couples counseling I learned that my past, negative beliefs about myself and ignoring my emotions was affecting my ability to move forward in my life and in my marriage. It was also affecting my ability to love myself as I was a people pleaser and more concerned about others. I was able to heal my relationship with food and grow through therapy by finding an inner peace and confidence in myself. I also learned some very valuable tools in setting boundaries and communication that have helped in my marriage, with my kids and with my family of origin. I've learned that my own self care matters because I can't give to others what I don't give to myself.  

I can only believe that part of the reason I went through this journey is to help others heal and grow and experience the peace I have in my own life. That is the reason I opened up my own private practice called Space for Healing Counseling. I will be more than honored to take this therapeutic journey with you to finding more peace and fulfillment in your life.
