I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with over 10 years of experience. I have worked in variety of settings: community mental health, inpatient psychiatric and substance abuse treatment. I have also worked in a private practice setting. I have experience working with individuals with Depression, Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Family and Relationship Issues, and Substance Use Disorders. I provide individual counseling, family therapy and couples counseling.
I use an eclectic approach to therapy, with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe that the same approach does not always work for every person. It's important to understand the client and his/her motivation and goals in treatment to provide the best treatment modality. I am direct in my approach while at the same time providing compassion.
I look forward to working with you and help you meet your therapy goals.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related, Sleeping, Parenting, Career, Depression

The few short weeks that I have been using Betterhelp with Christine, I feel like she has consciously listened to what I have had to say. Provided encouragement, understanding that works towards acceptance and progress.
I travel for work, working with someone that depends on appts, is not easy for me. This has been fantastic, my only regret is that I did not start sooner.
After being paired with Christine for the last month, I've hit some major leaps and bounds and I feel highly improved again thanks to the advice she gave me in dealing with whatever caused me to lose my marbles in the aftermath of my 21st Birthday this year. Thanks for all the help in the last few weeks, Christine. I really appreciate the input you gave me.
I finally found some peace after talking to Christine. Our exchanges have been truly life changing for me
Quite a good service. Christine was reasonably prompt with responding and had some new ideas. I feel like I would like a little more insight into what's happening, how to help myself a bit more maybe a bit more guidance. Maybe just slightly longer answers and thought in the answers? But overall pretty good.
In the short time that I have been communicating with Christine I have seen a significant difference in my mood! She always has great advice and I really feel like I can trust her. If I haven't checked in, in a few days she reaches out to check in! That makes me feel like I am a priority and she really does care for her clients. I truly am thankful that I have found BetterHelp and even more so that I was paired with Christine.
Christine has been really helpful, patient, and understanding. She has helped me greatly, talking things through and addressing them in a very polite and kind manner. I really appreciate her help.
Christine is great, she really asks lots of questions and offers just as many suggestions! She isn't afraid to tell you how it is and she is very direct and efficient. I feel like she knows how to counsel me into helping myself.
Christine was very responsive, supportive, understanding and professional. She asked me questions that helped my process of dealing with my issues and I finally found the answers for myself. I found Christine very easy to talk to and share my difficulties with. She has been kind and patient and definitely helped me through this difficult time. I had been looking for a therapist and it was lucky that I found BetterHelp and had a chance of working with Christine. Thank you!!!!
I felt safe talking with Christine and confident of her independent and insightful suggestions.
Christine has been so great in helping me to identify and address my issues in my own way and at my own pace. She has really gotten to know how I work and what steps would be good for me to take towards solving my problems. I would recommend her to anyone!
