I am recently married and have a newborn son! I am a huge Steelers fan and spend most of my spare time with family, friends, and my son! I knew early on that my passion lied in a career that was dedicated to helping others and returned to graduate school after working as a headhunter and Human Resources Manager. I hold a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology and am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. My experience includes working with adolescents and adults who suffer from substance use issues, family conflict, couples counseling, personal growth and development, and career counseling. I have worked with families and children as young as two-years-old into adolescence. My most recent experience was working with those who have suffered from traumatic life events. I specialize in helping those with anxiety and depression, marital problems, career issues, and life management stressors.
While I believe my theoretical orientation is integrative, much of my work is based off of utilizing practices and principles from CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy). I am warm, compassionate, and understand the importance of creating a strong therapeutic alliance with clients. As a therapist, it is important to challenge you, to help you live to your fullest potential, acting as an advocate for you and supporting you along the way! I meet you where you are in your life and offer an ear to listen, free of judgment.
I look forward to "meeting" you!
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in Addictions, Family, Grief, Intimacy-related, Parenting, Anger, Self esteem, Bipolar, Depression

Christie replies to all messages in a timely manner and provides thoughtful feedback. She has already helped me with a few issues in several weeks. I'm glad to have her help.
I really like talking to Christie. She helps me work through anything that comes up. She's super great to vent to. She gives great advice and listens to what I have to say. She remembers what is important to me and it makes talking to her even easier!
Very attentive and accessible. She seems genuinely concerned and interested and has been trying to steer me towards ways for me to manage my issues.
Keep changing lives! The world needs people like Christie. Went above and beyond for me and awesome communication. Thank you very much!
