Kristen Lape


I love being a counselor at Inspire. Many years ago, I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a BA in Liberal Studies focusing in Film, Psychology and Sociology. Later, I received an MA in Counselor Education at San Jose State University. For a few decades, I lived, worked and raised my children in Santa Cruz. Chico is my original hometown, so I really appreciate being here now. In my free time, I enjoy dancing, baking, being outdoors, walking, hiking and spending time with my partner, friends and family.
