Christine is great at listening. I struggled with prior therapists as I struggled to feel they were truly listening. Her ability to listen encouraged me to be honest so that I could get the most of our sessions, and she always had sharp, precise insights that helped me understand so much of situations that previously had my head spinning for years. Her strong understanding of the Word was evident all throughout, and helped me see how God counsels and strengths me in all that I do. She has helped me strengthen and grow my faith in equipping me with spiritual tools to confidently stop attending counseling and walk through life more confidently in God. Thank you, Christine!
