I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of Wisconsin, with 10+ years of counseling experience. I enjoy empowering clients to feel assertive and able to face anything. I have experience in crisis services, corrections, private practice, and community practice. I am certified in Functional Family Therapy (FFT). I am interested in individual, group, couples, and family therapy. I have a Bachelors degree in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin Parkside and a Master of Science in Education-Counseling from Concordia University Wisconsin.
My style of counseling is utilizing Motivational Interviewing techniques to elicit change talk. My approach is comforting, supportive, and encouraging. I have experience in Dialectical Behavior Therapy with interest in forgiveness, healthy relationships, and co-occurring disorders.
I am looking forward to working with you!

I’ve only been working with Christina for a short period, but she has helped me so much. I no longer feel like I am drowning in my anxiety and emotions. I’m learning to gain control of my life and be able to find a healthy balance. She makes me feel heard and that my emotions are valid. She’s very understanding and provides me with many tools to heal from the past and move forward with the future.
Christina is amazing! I would recommend her to anyone!!
Christina has been so awesome to work with from Day 1. She learned about me and continues to work with stuff in my past as well as new things that might pop up. I completely feel comfortable with her while chatting and it’s been a blessing!
