I am a Vermont licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist, supervisor and program manager in community mental health and outpatient settings. I have worked with individuals, children and families with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, self-esteem issues, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many individuals and teens who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive, balancing humor and tasks in a way to create a safe space for you to explore, heal and grow. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines client-centered, solution-focused and cognitive-behavioral therapy approaches, which essentially means that my focus is on you as an individual and I will adjust my treatment methods and plan in order to meet your unique and specific needs. Our sessions are for you and I want to make sure that you are able to get the most out of them that you can by learning and partnering with you on your journey to wellness.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change by reaching out for help. I know that is not always easy to do. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She is completely wonderful. Very thorough and professional, and easy to talk to
Christine is a very thoughtful and down-to-earth counselor. All of her insights and recommendations are helping me to further develop and grow as a human being. I always leave sessions with her feeling more grounded, secure, and hopeful for the future.
My counselor has been amazing! She is so helpful with all the situations that I present to her. She is not afraid to say what she thinks even though sometimes I do not want to hear it ha. She just really seems to understand me and I look forward to my sessions.
Christine has provided a fantastic counseling experience. She fosters a safe, comfortable, and supportive space where I feel safe to be vulnerable. Christine responds thoughtfully and I never feel like she is judging me. She has a good sense of humor and just “gets it”. I would highly recommend Christine.
Christine has been fantastic to talk with. She has made me feel comfortable to share whatever is on my mind. Her feedback is thoughtful and well communicated. I appreciate her support as it has been crucial in me reaching my goals.
So far, Christine has been very quick to respond and is very thorough in trying to understand my issues and concerns.
In the short time Christine and I have been working together, she has been awesome. This is my second attempt at counseling and she has been a much better fit for me. I am able to be comfortable in every session knowing that she will be there to offer guidance that is very prevalent to my feelings. She has been great!
Christine is kind, thoughtful and flexible in her approach to offering the support and help I need. She's made a tragic time in my life far more bearable and I look forward to continuing to work with her to improve myself.
I am only a week into it but so far it has been a good thing.
Interested, empathetic, thoughtful and makes me feel like I'm normal
