Christine was an amazing counselor! She really listened to me and helped me out so much with the things I was struggling with. I would recommend her to anyone who is needing a counselor.

Christine offers helpful interventions and guides you to your own conclusions. I feel heard during our sessions.

Christine has been a tremendous help to me in helping me identify negative thought patterns that have gone unnoticed for years. I highly recommend her !

Written by C.C. on Apr 09, 2020 after counseling with Christine for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

I consulted with Christine regarding my marriage issue. She uses claim and non-biased tone providing me many useful suggestions, examples, and resources. Sometimes suggestions can be vain if without some resources backing up. She helped me validate my concern since sometimes I’m not sure my actions toward my spouse is correct or not especially when he said it is not right. Of course she will point out when she thinks my approach is not necessary. Working with Christine has been very helpful for me to sort through my emotion.

Christine is great. As someone who is skeptical about counseling I was slow to sign up and schedule my first session. I was slightly disappointed that our first two were just a “conversation” but now I see she was taking time to get to know me and my concerns and is a great help and I’m glad to have her. She gives good Godly counsel and has a plethora of knowledge and resources.

Written by A.N. on Nov 30, 2019 after counseling with Christine for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I’ve been with Christine for a month so far and can already feel a transformative shift in my life. I’m feeling more balanced, and have some new tools to help navigate some very challenging times, that I feel are helping create a new foundation rooted in self love, compassion and empowerment. Some of the things that seemed very daunting and nearly impossible, I am now moving through with more grace and optimism than I would have ever on my own. I am so grateful for her support and looking forward for what’s ahead with her as my therapist.
