Kristen E Guest, MDiv, LMSW is a social worker, therapist and joy coach with a commitment to service and… joy. In the midst of many difficult storms in life, she was able to obtain two Master Degrees before becoming licensed in Masters’ Level Social Work. Kristen enjoys her work and commitment to counsel others to their best selves and lives full of meaning. Dedication to remembering our worth is what makes us stronger than we at first may realize. Kristen believes this is possible for our girls to see as well.
From a young age, Kristen has lived with, and battled against, a debilitating autoimmune illness, leaving her many times without the ability to rise into her greatness. With her faith, and a deep propensity to get to a place where she could support others in their journeys, Kristen has made it her mission to come out the other side; as always, a work in progress. Not only this, her ultimate goal in life is to serve in a way that empowers others – especially those with chronic illness – to activate joy for themselves. Kristen takes her mission seriously and carries it wherever she goes.
Most recently in her career, Kristen has served clients in shelter, living without homes of their own. This has increased her empathy and compassion all the more, and her desire to reach as many hearts as possible that truly believe in the necessity and power of self-love and growth. This has also been her awakening to what she was meant to do; serve others by helping them to access their joy and release pain.
Wellness services of all kind are indeed a calling, and Kristen feels led to do for those who may be a bit stagnant in their lives, careers, and even family systems, to focus more on the issue at hand, at which point they can figure out what success means to them and achieve it wholeheartedly. Kristen is glad to be a part of such a great mission for young women who have been in all sorts of similar or different situations.
