About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Michigan with over 4 years of experience working as a clinical therapist and intervention specialist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, panic disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, communication concerns, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, career challenges, ADHD, trauma, and PTSD. I also have helped many people who struggle with addiction including, but not limited to, substance use.

My therapy style is warm, engaging, and person-centered. I believe you are the expert on yourself and my role in this therapeutic relationship is to support you. Each client has their own individual characteristics and I utilize a variety of approaches to tailor a unique plan with each client. My practice theories include; cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness, strength-based, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, attachment theory, and didactic.

The approach I take towards the therapeutic relationship is heavy with compassion, supportive like a friendship, filled to the brim with positive regard for you, and desire for you achieve the absolute best things out of life.

"Compassion is not a relationship between a healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our darkness well, can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity." -- Pema Chödrön

I am here to support and encourage you. I look forward to working together!

Christine is kind and helpful. It is difficult to get started with a new therapist, but she makes the transition comfortable by being fully present in conversation and taking time to truly understand what brought you to her. I have been with Christine for 6+ months and I am very happy with the therapeutic relationship that we have built. She is kind, supportive, and always has my best interest in mind. My voice is truly heard in our sessions. Thank you Christine!
