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 has been with thru the good and bad of my emotions and even helped me to see the other side of what the person thought. sometimes it takes some digging for me to see what I need to see. Dr Christensen is great to be patient and help in digging for those revelations.

I’ve only worked with her for 3 weeks now and she’s already helped me work through some very difficult anxieties! Thank you Dr. Christensen.

Dr. Christensen has helped me so much. She is absolutely amazing. I have come so far since I started therapy with her in February 2022. She is just like my mother in the way she gives advice and helps guide. I know she truly cares about me and her other patients. She is passionate about what she does and is the best ever. She is very patient and also very realistic. She tells me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear in order to better myself. Love her so much!

Dr C is amazing, really wish this survey came up on any other day when I had ample time to go into detail, but the gist is this, Dr. Christensen listened to what I said while hearing what I didn't, she gave real advice and help and made me feel better about conquering the hurdles coming my way. I literally could not recommend her enough.

I love her. She is fantastic, and I got super lucky to have her as my first ever therapist. She is timely, offers great honest advice, and really validates and hears out my concerns. I would absolutely recommend her to someone else looking to start therapy.

I really like Dr. Christiansen. I have no issues with her, at all. She’s wonderful.
It’s just the price of BetterHealth.com is so expensive, that I might not be able to continue with it.
Thank you.
