About me

I am a licensed counselor, with over 15 years of experience. I have worked with a variety of issues, including infertility, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, career challenges, and life changes. I have also helped people with parenting, attachment and divorce related issues.

I have a warm and interactive style. I believe that real change occurs in a safe and accepting counseling environment. My approach is to combine cognitive-behavioral, developmental and person centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Christy is an incredible therapist, before her I was struggling with a lot that I didn't even realize until we unpacked it in our weekly sessions. I always leave our conversations feeling a sense of peace and confidence in who I am. Therapy has changed my life for the better and I encourage family members and friends to try it out

Written on Jul 15, 2022 after therapy with Christy for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

What can I say about Christy besides the fact that she’s one of the most caring and capable people I’ve met in a long time. She’s given me valuable grounding tools to use when I feel anxious (and they actually work), she checks on me when she knows I’ve have a bad day, and she’s genuine. I always feel like she really cares about my growth and how I feel. I highly recommend Christy and look forward to continuing my work with her. She has helped me tremendously.

At almost 40 years old, this is my first ever experience with seeking therapy and I didn't know how it all worked. Christy is warm, friendly and listens to my concerns like she is a close friend, but offers professional advise and exercises to help you work through your troubles. I haven't felt the need to seek another therapist, so that says a lot! Thank you Christy!

I met with Christy for a little over year through a particularly rough time in my life, and her guidance played such an essential role in my healing journey. She is such a kind and understanding listener whom I always felt that I could go to for support. She helped me untangle a lot of challenging emotions and guided me to finding an emotional space where I feel so much more healthy, at peace, and capable of handling whatever chaos comes my way. Thank you, Christy!

I have only had a couple sessions with Christy, but she's is one of the best counselors I've had on this app. She is warm, attentive, and listens to what you have to say. She gives you suggestions of "homework" and doesn't go onto explanations about her own personal life like many other counselors I have used before! Highly recommend!
