I am a counselor in Arkansas with 30 years of experience providing counseling services for couples, individuals, and families. I have worked with many clients with a wide range of issues including depression, marriage counseling, parenting, anger, addiction and past trauma issues. I have also supervised other counselors. I have also worked with some clients on sports performance issues and focus specifically on golf. I use various counseling techniques, but also believe that the client-counselor relationship is one of the most important aspects in determining the success of counseling. I believe that counseling is a journey of the client who has a specific place or goal in life they would like to go. My first job as your counselor is to work with you in deciding what a successful outcome of counseling looks like to you. This is your journey and it is my job to help you be successful in that journey. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling from Henderson State University in Arkansas. I graduated in 1990 and have been involved in the counseling profession in Arkansas throughout my career.

Christina was born and raised in Arkansas and has lived in the state her whole life. However, as the child of Irish immigrants, Christina spent a lot of time in Ireland connecting with her heritage and experiencing Irish culture which focuses on relationships and community. These experiences of connection, belonging, and meeting unique and amazing individuals both at home and abroad inspired Christina to seek out a profession in which those qualities are celebrated and cultivated. When she decided to start the journey of becoming a therapist, she attended the University of Central Arkansas where she obtained a Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling. Since becoming a counselor she has taken every opportunity to learn and grow. Christina has provided therapy in a variety of settings such as in schools, agencies, inpatient treatment facilities, and private practice. In therapy, she uses a range of effective, evidence-based counseling techniques, tailoring her approach to fit the individual needs of her clients. Christina specializes in helping adults struggling with mood disorders (depression, anxiety), trauma, and personality disorders. In her spare time, Christina loves spending time in nature with her husband and their dogs, traveling to new places, and can always be found with a book in her hand. She enjoys playing board games with her friends and can be found all summer at the lake with her family.

I have had over a half-century of clinical experience, and have worked with a broad variety of clients. I see each client as a unique individual with a distinct array of problems and questions. I do not limit myself to a specific "brand" of psychotherapy, but instead design a treatment approach to match the individual client's needs, all the while recognizing that the client's situation may evolve, priorities may change, new goals may arise, and that psychotherapy at its best is often a process of illuminating a path to self fulfillment.

I specialize in conflict resolution, relationship issues, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. We work together within a judgment-free zone to evaluate, pinpoint and discover ways to climb those hills and come out of those valleys unrestricted and exhilarated to pursue the next journey ahead.

Counseling/Therapy is a great way to safely explore your thoughts, feelings, and life dynamics to help you become the healthiest you! Life and mental health struggles are real and can leave you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, defeated, tired, insecure, among many other icky feelings. Without processing and seeking treatment in a healthy way, symptoms can exacerbate into something insurmountable. Treat yourself to finding a healthy balance and fulfilment in your life...you DESERVE your best self! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been licensed in Arkansas for the past 15 years. My current focus is working with adults and older adults who are working through the grief process, whether they are overwhelmed with a loved one's death or illness, a loss of a relationship, struggling with depression/anxiety or any other diagnosis. I am here to help you explore your thoughts and feelings, and assist you in finding balance in your "upside down" world. It's about finding what is right for you, not what is right for everyone around you.

As a mental health therapist, licensed in Arkansas, Mississippi, and New Jersey, with over 26 years experience, I enjoy working with clients, with a wide range of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, emotional and physical abuse, trauma, OCD, and ADHD. My therapy style is caring and encouraging. I provide support, as you gain insight into the challenges that can keep you or your family caught in the cycle of dissension, and help you develop healthier coping skills. In our therapy sessions, you are accepted where you are, while encouraged to grow. Everyone is taught that they are valuable. I use multiple approaches to help my clients cope and overcome their challenges. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) gives healthy coping skills a name and practical life application. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) involves thinking through and processing concerns and solutions, while Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) teaches effective coping skills and prepares individuals to be able to talk about upsetting and confusing events. My Christian holistic approach provides additional effective and calming skills, especially in relation to anxiety. These techniques are utilized in the therapeutic setting, among others. Treatment is individualized, and success is personalized. I look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Mountain Pine area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Mountain Pine therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Mountain Pine due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Mountain Pine may not take health insurance, some in the state of Arkansas may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Arkansas you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Mountain Pine, Arkansas working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Mountain Pine above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Mountain Pine therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Mountain Pine therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Mountain Pine therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in AR, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Mountain Pine counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Mountain Pine licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Mountain Pine, Arkansas can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Mountain Pine has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
