Kristin Canan, MSW, LGSW
Kristin holds a Master of Social Work degree and Interpersonal Trauma Studies certification from University of Denver. Kristin has empowered individuals' healing journeys in a multitude of therapeutic, administrative, program development, and community-based roles through her work in addiction treatment, outpatient psychiatry, victim crisis response, sexual assault and domestic violence victim advocacy, and bereavement services. She has worked extensively with survivors and surviving family members of trauma and loss and is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. Kristin specializes in navigating the intersections between trauma responses, mental health disorders, and presenting unhealthy coping skills such as substance abuse, self-harm, suicidality, and eating disordered behaviors. Kristin has been invited to speak at national and international conferences all over the United States. She has served as a trauma and grief expert for an international crisis intervention training organization. Kristin has also authored and published multiple articles on responding to sexual violence and has developed curricula for the Graduate School of Social Work at University of Denver. As Clinical Director at Magnolia Creek, Kristin oversees clinical program development; supervises clinical, dietetic, and direct care staff; ensures quality client care; and provides individual and group therapy to residential and partial hospitalization clientele.
Kristin has lived all over the United States but will always be a Midwesterner (and a die-hard Green Bay Packer fan) at heart. Kristin loves the outdoors, and in her free time she enjoys hiking, camping, bonfires, traveling, and attending live performances of any kind.
