Hi, my name is Christina (Chrissy). I became a therapist to help individuals navigate life's many stressors and challenges, to recognize their capability to overcome and heal. I have experience working with individuals who have experienced complex trauma, depression, anxiety, ptsd, psychosis, and substance abuse to name a few. I understand one approach may not work for everyone and therefore have been trained and utilize Postmodern Narrative, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Somatic work.
