Dr. Maureen Christensen

(PhD, LMFT, RN)

About Me

If you want movement and change I am the therapist for you. I have had over 30 years of experience in counseling individuals, couples and families. I provide a safe, supportive environment to explore your personal and confidential issues. I will help you accomplish your goals and become the best version of yourself. I do this by empowering you to put aside fears and self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help refute negative thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. Turning these negative cognitions into positive thoughts and behaviors. I am direct, but loving and supportive. I give clients the tools to be their own therapist when our sessions have ended. My education includes a PhD in Health and Human Services, a Masters degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and a Bachelors degree in Nursing. I believe we have the capability to heal ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally by understanding ourselves and being brave enough to be who we want to be in the world.

Dr. Christensen is wonderful! She is kind and willing to take the time to learn who you are as a person in order to best know how to speak with you. I was so nervous and she made me feel so comfortable. She even prayed with me. It was so helpful and I'm so grateful!
