About me

Hello and welcome! My name is Christa Watson and I am a clinical social worker licensed in Indiana with over 20 years of experience working as a medical social worker, health coach, mental health case manager and therapist. I have worked with clients regarding a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting concerns, career challenges, and ADHD. I also have experience working with clients who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is kind, non-judgmental, caring, and interactive. I treat everyone with respect, compassion, and sensitivity and desire to work as a team in order to help you feel your best. My counseling approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solutions focused, reality, humanistic, psychodynamic and client centered therapy. Our sessions will be personalized with a plan designed for your specific needs.

To seek help with life's challenges takes courage. To seek a more fulfilling and satisfied life and to take the first steps towards change, takes strength. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support, work with, and empower you!

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

She's amazing and has been so helpful. I never dread sessions like I used to and she never makes me feel judged or like I can't tell her something. I absolutely would recommend her!

Christa is an amazing therapist. We worked together for about 5 months, and in that time she helped me realize my true potential, while making me feel validated and heard. I hope to come back to her when needed in the future!

Christa is one of the best therapists I have spoken with. She really listens and provides you with the tools you need. When I am talking with her, she makes me so comfortable that I feel like I am talking with a friend.

I have seen multiple therapists throughout my life and Christa has been, by far, the most helpful. She has been a therapist that I feel comfortable being 100% open and myself with. I’ve ever felt embarrassed or ashamed to share anything with her. She’s a great listener and validates/makes sense of my confusing thoughts. She’s helped me change for the positive in ways I hadn’t even realized needed changing when we first started our sessions. She gives great resources, and I always feel lighter after our sessions. I’ve made greater progress with her in the last 6 months than I have in the last 10 years. I cannot thank her enough for her guidance.

Christa has been the best listener. She provides honest advice that takes into consideration more than my own feelings. I always leave the session with more insight and it has in turn helped me cope with the struggles I’m facing!

I came to Christa as a lady full of confusion over what is right and what is acceptable. Christa has been so patient with me. She is an amazing listener, she is quick to understand way beyond what I normally share with her. This I think is due to her listening ability and her experience in helping others. I especially appreciate how she shows respect to my spiritual side and understand how I am guided by it. I am no longer confused as i was the first time I met her. I have gained strength and have stopped whipping myself in my mind thinking that i am the cause of all bad things that happened. She has taken me out of my shell, making me realise my capabilities and raised my confidence level; hence making me a person who is knows that she can move on with assurance and happiness. Thank you Christa.
