Marissa Kistner, Professional Counseling Intern
When you feel stressed, overwhelmed or weighed down by your struggles and concerns, Marissa believes counseling offers a unique way of being heard. No one knows you better than you know yourself and she wants to help you find answers and solutions that exist within you, waiting to be found.
Marissa is an intern counselor at Christian Counseling Connection. She has been an educator for 7 years and in that time, she has seen a growing need in the area of mental health. This called her to a career change into the field of counseling. She has completed all other requirements, aside from this internship, for a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling with a school counseling certificate through the University of Missouri – Saint Louis.
Marissa also believes in the influence and guidance of the Holy Spirit through the ever changing journey God has planned for each of us. It can be difficult to persevere when the path or destination is unknown. She wants to help adolescents and adults to find peace and an improved experience of life in the face of challenges, struggles, or uncertainties they face. Allow Marissa to accompany you along your path.
