My name is Christina Watson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Masters of Social Work. Since that time, I have been given the opportunity to work in the mental health field in a variety of settings. My passion lies in helping individuals such as yourself meet their goals and work towards becoming their best selves. Most of my clinical work has been with adults but I have worked with families, teens and children.
My therapeutic approach is fairly simple, I believe you are the expert in your life and I am here as a partner and sounding board to help you make real positive changes in your life. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solutions focused and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Over the past 8 months, Christina has helped me adjust to retiring after 30+ years with the same company, selling my home, and moving into my fiance’s home - all amidst the pandemic. I don’t know if I would’ve successfully made the transition without her trusted and compassionate assistance. One of the best investments I’ve made.

Working with Tina has been a breakthrough for me. I started therapy knowing there was something wrong, but not sure what or how to fix it. Working with Tina has felt like working with an old friend who you can open up to and gives really really great advice. I now have a clearer understanding of myself and how to navigate the world around me in the kindest way possible.

I’ve worked with Tina for about six months now, and she’s given me tools to help with my anxiety, depression, and trauma. She is accessible, as well as understanding and personable. I worried about therapy/counseling before trying BetterHelp. They connected me with Tina right off the bat, and she’s been open and understanding from the start. I definitely recommend her counseling. It continues to help me throughout my problems.

I’ve been very happy with Christina Watson. She really helped me with a very personal emotional situation. I never felt embarrassed to cry over the phone or hesitate in expressing my thoughts. Even if at times some of them were just all over the place. She genuinely listened and helped guide my decisions. Her perspective helped me see things in another light.
