Kristina Lengerich LCSW
Owner and Founder of Between the Lines Counseling
I am a solo practitioner and offer individual therapy for children, adolescents and adults as well as therapeutic support for parents via the SPACE protocol. Approximately 80% of my clients are diagnosed with OCD or receive care and treatment for co-occurring trauma and anxiety related disorders. My commitment to treating OCD includes intensive continued education throughout my career, weekly consultation and ongoing training several times per year. My practice is dedicated to increasing treatment availability to patients in underserved communities while offering exposure treatment with particular focus in self compassion work.
Social Anxiety / Social Phobia
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
PTSD / Complex Trauma
Grief and Loss
I am trained in ACT, ERP, AutPlay, TraumaPlay and EMDR. I also specialize in supporting individuals and families who are experiencing learning challenges, are gifted or identify as neurodivergent. I have worked in the social work field with children, caregivers and families since 2003. After 32 weeks of intensive consultation with the co-founder of Center for Anxiety and Behavioral Therapy, I was awarded certification in OCD treatment in August 2022. In order to have obtained certification in OCD treatment, I was required to demonstrate competency in all facets of ERP as well as care for primary OCD subtypes.
I have completed diversity and cultural competency trainings through Cherry Creek School District, Douglas County School District and Arapahoe County Department of Human Services in Colorado, USA, during my twenty years in the social work field. My employment with these agencies afforded me the opportunity to specialize with diverse populations with limited access to services and supports.
