Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor and certified school counselor in Missouri with over 9 years experience in a variety of settings working with diverse populations. I have experience working with clients who have experienced a wide variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, attachment, and ADHD as well as those client who have witnessed or experienced trauma or adverse childhood events. My primary therapy orientation is a strengths based person centered approach meeting clients where they are at and guiding them through a process of narrative, cognitive based, trauma and solution focused modalities. My therapy style is caring, compassionate, empathetic and honest. We will work together to create an interactive plan that best suits each individual client needs.
It takes courage and bravery in asking for help in times of stress and frustration. If you are ready to take that step, we will collaborate on the best path moving forward for you and your life.
I look forward to working with you!

Christina is the best therapist I’ve met in years. I have made a lot of personal growth in large part because of my sessions with Christina. I highly recommend her!
