Cristen Chiri is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Pittsburgh with a local practice, Relationship Resolutions , in the Shadyside neighborhood.
She earned her master's degree in counseling psychology from Chatham University in 2010. Cristen recalls always having a curious and adventurous spirit. She was drawn to counseling as a first profession due to its natural integration of art, science, and inquisition. Cristen fell in love with yoga and mindfulness practices while in college studying counseling and psychology. Cristen went on to complete her first yoga teacher training with Amazing Yoga in 2015. She currently provides a yoga counseling group through Relationship Resolutions in the Cranberry location. Since deepening her "asana" practice, she has also been studying and practicing vipassana meditation for two years. Cristen enjoys sitting with local meditation groups as well as self-study with meditation.
This journey thus far has left Cristen with a
passion for the integration of counseling and 'talk therapy' with mindfulness and body-based practices. She believes in the accessibility and empowering nature of this approach. To find our best selves, heal from trauma, and to meet the overwhelming challenges of

When Cristen isn't practicing she enjoys walking, writing, photography, reading, adventure sports, and
