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.

26 years of experience as a mental health therapist

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!

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Twin Groves region and in the state of Arkansas. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Twin Groves 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 Twin Groves due to a higher cost of living.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Twin Groves 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.

Twin Groves therapists 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 Twin Groves 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 Twin Groves 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 psychotherapist.

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

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Twin Groves counselor?

Before seeing your Twin Groves 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Twin Groves.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Twin Groves 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 with a Twin Groves counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Twin Groves, 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.

Twin Groves 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
