Christy Lochary is a Licenced Marriage and Family therapist and has been working with children and families since 2008. She began her career as a teacher for an independent K-8 school in Louisville Colorado. During this time, Christy found that I had a passion for connecting with families and sharing the joys and challenges they faced. Teaching was also where she began to understand that play can be a powerful expression of a child’s inner experience.
Motivated by her time as a teacher, Christy pursued and successfully obtained a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Regis University in 2015. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Synergetic Play Therapist, Level 1 Trained Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist, and serves as the Clinical Supervisor at the group practice she founded, The Louisville Family Center.
