We are thrilled to welcome Behavioral Health Therapist Kristen Ales to the Rimrock Trails team! Specializing in disordered eating and negative body image, Kristen holds her master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Wilderness Therapy.
Kristen shares, “Since graduating I have worked in various wilderness therapy settings and have sought out additional education around disordered eating, health at every size, intuitive eating, and size acceptance. My passion lies in combining my body image therapy work with outdoor adventure.”
An outdoor enthusiast, one can find Kristen skiing, hiking, and biking. She, her boyfriend, and her dog, Buddy, love trying out new restaurants in Bend and cooking exciting and delicious food. Kristen also loves art, visiting museums and galleries, photography, and graphic design.
