About Me

Hello! My name is Christine and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the beautiful State of Oklahoma. As the nation struggles with the pandemic we are facing, my counseling license is also recognized in a number of other states. I have had over 10 years experience working in the mental health field. I have a broad range of experience in a variety of settings providing exceptional mental health and substance abuse treatment care in outpatient clinics, correctional facilities, communities/homes, and schools. I have experience working with adults and adolescents having difficulties with depression, anxiety, family/relationship conflicts, life transitions, severe mental illness, and complex trauma/abuse. I also have experience working with LBGTQ+ individuals and have counseled transgendered clients post and prior transition as well as supporting them through the process. My past experience includes crisis intervention and working with individuals as they receive psychopharmacology treatment from their prescribers.

As I have walked the path with individuals facing many different challenges who come from a variety of backgrounds, I also use a varied approach to counseling techniques. I specialize in person centered, holistic approach incorporating CBT and motivational interviewing techniques. What this means to you is that I meet you where you are now and plan with you how we can get you to where you wish to be. I offer unconditional positive regard and warmth as we work towards reaching your goals.

I look forward to working with you!

She is excellent to work with! After our first conversation I walked away feeling hopeful and felt like Christine was really able to listen and zone in on a plan to help me process things. I haven't had .y second session yet but I definitely look forward to it.

Christine is a very good listener, she gives very good feedback. I find myself really reflecting on my actions and the repercussions, she helps bring light to the underlying issues sometimes hard to see from where I stand. She constantly checks in on me and makes sure I am ok. She has a genuine concern for my well being, and for that I am grateful.

Christine was super great! Our time together was a bit limited but she listened intently and gave me so many great strategies that will help me going forward. She was super easy to talk with and I would definitely recommend to any friend.

Christine Dennis, is helping me make my mental health a priority. She and I message back and forth multiple times a day and she addresses my issues in a way that feels like I am conversing with a friend.

When it comes to therapy, I have been attending on and off for 8 years and it hasn't worked in the past -- I find I am not telling the whole truth and not verbalizing my needs and concerns well. I find it easier to be honest and hold myself accountable using betterhelp as I can verbalize my feelings better over messaging. Christine is very available to chat whenever I find myself in need of her help and I would recommend her and betterhelp to anyone who needs the extra help!

Christine took me for where I was at and provided me with safety. She is incredibly easy to talk to and versatile; sessions had to be a mix of text, audio, and video. Any medium we used to communicate worked well! She often checked in on me during the week, which meant everything when I was in the pit of depression. Knowing someone cared made all the difference. Thank you!

My first experience with any kind of counseling has been through BetterHelp. Christine has always created a safe and comfortable space to communicate, and she messages back frequently. Although I have to take a break from the app for a while, I’ve found that working with Christine has helped me to approach my day to day in a much more positive, constructive perspective. If at any point I’m confronted with some negative or unhealthy thought patterns, I’m confident that I now have the tools to work through them. Thank you for making this such a pleasant learning experience Christine !
