I have been in practice for over 30 years.

I am a seasoned therapist experienced in the provision of services for those with chronic mental illnesses, mood disorders, situational disorders, dual diagnoses, substance abuse, life crises, obsessive compulsive disorders, unresolved grief, anxiety disorders, and phobias etc. Services provided are designed to address each individual’s needs and preferences.

Chris is great! I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She's been great guiding me through this process and having me really think about what's going on in my life and how it can be impacting me. She's a wonderful person!

I've only been with Christine for a few sessions, but I've enjoyed it very much so far. Very thought provoking - and I think we have already established a pretty easy rapport.

I’ve felt comfortable opening up to Christine. She created a secure atmosphere which allowed me to open up. I look forward to working with her to work on myself.

Christine is great at listening and providing candid feedback. I appreciate her asking questions in helpingme understand my challenges. She is very empathetic and patient. She makes herself available around your schedule. She walks along side you which is good for people seeking counseling for the first time.

Work with me!
