About Me

As you know, sometimes life is overwhelming, resulting in feelings of grief, anxiety, anger, or fatigue. It can sap your motivation or leave you with thoughts of defeat and being stuck. I am here to gently help you find your way back, to reclaim your life and keep moving forward.

My practice is based on the knowledge that we are all holistic beings with physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions, dynamically woven together to produce the unique individuals we are. I am certified in Interactive Guided Imagery (sm) and Thought Field Therapy, and have additional training in behavioral nutrition, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR ), and NeuroModulation Technique therapy. I work primarily with adults (both men and women) on issues of grief and loss, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, trauma, and motivation.

When we work together, we will do more than just “talk.” We will work with the resources you already have but may not know how to access, and develop a few new tools in the process. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Chris is full of good ideas for getting in touch with yourself and really digging deep in order to help yourself grow. I appreciated how Chris held me accountable for things I said I would or wanted to do and for how she affirmed me and my feelings. She helps you become your strongest advocate and is so deeply compassionate as well as knowledgeable. On so many levels she helped me to develop my skills for navigating sexual assault trauma as well as estrangement from family members. She is honest and kind and nonjudgmental. I can't say enough good things about Chris. Anyone would be lucky to work with her, but especially those who want to more deeply connect with themselves on a holistic level.

Written by M.A. on May 04, 2020 after therapy with Christine for 2 years and 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Chris has been talking through life with me for years now and I'm so grateful. When we met my life was in shambles, and her calm, practical advice helped me through years and years of picking up the pieces. Also has some impressive knowledge about physical responses and vitamins and health, as well as my recovery from alcoholism and divorce and... Thanks Kris!!

Written by H.E. on Apr 10, 2020 after therapy with Christine for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Chris is a very thoughtful, forthright and experienced. I have had other therapists just have me talk and ask questions, but I asked Chris to give me tasks and tools and she has done just that. It has been very helpful, though challenging work. She is also quite good at noting when progress is being made and what is next.

I really enjoyed having Chris as a someone to talk to. She was always in an excellent mood and always checked up on me when I didn't answer right away. She never doubted my decisions and always supported me. I would highly suggest having Chris as someone to talk to if you can.

She gives a comforting presence even through typed messages. It is very helpful to have a calm, uninvolved, new opinion on the things that are troubling me. She has a great perspective and seems to focus on a very mindful approach to mental health. Would recommend!

Thank you to Christine for keeping me going, making me think clearer and for helping me to get things in to perspective. She also responds clearly and consistently, without judgement and offering her full support. I feel she really understands what my issues are. Thank you, Chris :)

Written by T.A. on May 01, 2018 after therapy with Christine for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, and self esteem

I have been going through a very difficult time in my life. There are so many things that I think a normal person would have buckled. I have went to a few counselors before. Chris is very intuitive. She sees motivation for my actions and calls me on it. I needed that. I think she is a good counselor with a clear head on her shoulders and very easy to talk to.

Written by R.E. on Apr 28, 2018 after therapy with Christine for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

I started with another counselor and it wasn’t helping at all. Christine was quick to figure out what I was dealing with and to make a plan and goals for what I needed to get out of counseling. I am very happy with the help I am getting from her.

Written by B.R. on Apr 21, 2018 after therapy with Christine for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Written by J.E. on Apr 06, 2018 after therapy with Christine for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and self esteem

She is flexible to work with my schedule and gave me many practical strategies to improve my day to day life. She kept me focused on the goals I set up and we discussed my progress. She really cares. I highly recommend her.

Written by K.A. on Apr 04, 2018 after therapy with Christine for 2 weeks

Christine responses are both quick and insightful. She understands that people contacting her are in need of help and attention and she truly considers that; consequently she is professional and really makes an effort to understand her patients' situations. I've never felt as though I have to remind her about what my issue is or why I need her help. She is focused, empathetic and has always been there when I needed her. I can't recommend her enough.

Written by E.R. on Jan 11, 2018 after therapy with Christine for 3 months

Christine is fantastic! She is attentive and insightful!

Christine has given me tools that have brought immediate relief. Besides this she is helping me see where my thinking has fallacies so that I might let those go and grow. She also helps me see where there are real issues and that is not just me and my thinking. She is incredibly responsive and respectful. Thank you!!

Work with me!
