"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. -Marcel Proust"

Transform your life voyage.


A native to the Vail Valley of Colorado, KRISTEN BEAU, M.A., attended universities in Colorado including the University of Colorado and Naropa University in Boulder, and she is a candidate for her doctorate at Saybrook University in San Francisco, California. Some of Kristen Beau’s clinical work is based on Contemplative and Humanistic psychology, which focuses on increasing mind-body awareness (Mindfulness) while also emphasizing a holistic approach to human existence including interconnection and spirituality. She works to meet the client where they are and creates a safe place for exploration and self-compassion, paying special attention to creativity, and inherent human potential. Kristen Beau has worked extensively with individuals, families and groups struggling with depression and anxiety, survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, struggles with identity or changing phases of life, grief counseling, and addiction. Additionally, she is passionate about prevention and education with mental health concerns and how we can better connect and care for others and ourselves. In her free time she enjoys exploring the Rocky Mountains, meditating, writing, photography, and spending time with her family.


Counseling is an investment with yourself, your relationship, and with your family.  As a therapist at Beau Counseling, I am deeply committed to the profession of counseling.  I have spent a good portion of my life, and invested a great deal of personal resources in order to bring you the compassionate care that you and/or your friend or family deserves.   I am also firmly rooted in the belief that I need to ensure that the type and quality of my service is affordable and available to individuals, couples, and families in the Vail Valley and Denver communities who otherwise would not be able to afford it–that is the mission of Beau Counseling.
