Christine’s clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents and their families, as well as individuals struggling with relational issues, substance abuse, and addiction.
Christine believes that every person is capable of the self-understanding that leads to a successful, healthy, and joyful life. To facilitate this understanding, Christine works with individual clients to create a safe, supportive environment where they may explore areas in which they may be “stuck” or struggling. She employs a psycho-dynamic, humanistic model which empowers her clients to identify, celebrate, and utilize their strengths to overcome challenges, so that they may reach their fullest potential in all areas of their lives.
Christine has combined her passion for healthy, thriving families and her own personal experience with the transition to a two-household family into a specialization in working with divorce issues. As a CDC Certified Divorce Coach, Christine becomes a vital ally, sounding board, and mentor in helping clients be the best parents they can be during one of the most crucial times in their and their children’s lives.
