Kristin Silva
Independent Associate Counselor 

Kristin Silva holds a Masters of Arts in Theological Studies from Westminster Seminary California and has completed her counseling training and internship through the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF). 

She has been counseling in the context of the local church since 2010 though her first introduction to counseling came almost a decade earlier during her years doing campus ministry. Those years gave her a picture of what counseling and discipleship could look like together and are the foundation for her current passion to work with and alongside of churches to walk with people through various trials.   She counsels a wide variety of struggles ranging from, but not limited to, sexuality, past abuse, fear and anxiety, depression, and marriages.

Kristin’s two loves are coffee and kayaking. Though most often she enjoys these separately, sometimes, on a glorious Saturday morning, you can find her enjoying an iced coffee during a leisurely paddle on the Willamette.  She also enjoys hiking and gathering with friends to eat, laugh and have good conversation.

If you would like to contact Kristin for counseling or speaking engagements, please contact her at either: Kristin@ImpactBiblicalCounseling.com or (503) 862-3587.

Loraena Tuttle
Intern Counselor

Loraena’s heart for counseling grew over the past decade as she served with her husband in ministry at a local church. She began her counseling studies in 2013 through CCEF and later transitioned to Westminster Theological Seminary’s Master of Arts in Counseling.

She lives in Beaverton and has been married since 2001 to her husband, Josh. They have two daughters together through adoption, Ellie and Faye, and a schnoodle named Olaf.

Loraena and her husband have walked together through loss on multiple occasions and she developed a passion for the foundational importance of clinging to the hope we have in Jesus Christ when all else fails. Her primary focus thus far has been with those struggling over questions of faith, depression/anxiety, relational difficulties, and loss. She also enjoys working with teenagers.

In her (very little) spare time, Loraena loves reading, making music, pilates, brunching in Portland, and watching movies with her family.
