Hello, my name is Christina Crain and I am passionate about supporting Christians in the counseling world. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Missouri and as a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I also am a nationally certified counselor and a certified clinical mental health counselor through the national board of counselors.
My background has supported churches for over 11 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in the Bible and earned my masters counseling degree from a Christian University. I’ve supported local churches by starting a counseling ministry in the local church in Scranton PA, and for working for a local church in Tampa Fl for over 3 years to get their support group program up and running.
I truly believe that God has a hope and a future for us and that we can find comfort through Him. I have worked with clients all over the world and really enjoy the platform of using virtual counseling to reach Christian’s around the globe.
Through my experience in counseling, I have worked for over 10 years with clients facing difficult times in their life. Many of my clients have struggles with depression, anxiety, relationships, parenting difficulties, trauma, eating disorders, OCD, self-harm, ADHD, or simply transitions in their life. It does not matter if you are an Individual, couple, or family; not matter what you are going through, being alone is not something to add on top of your circumstances.
My counseling approach sees people without judgement. In a world where everyone has an opinion my hope is to be someone to hear you and understand you. I never want my clients to feel alone when life is difficult. I believe everyone has relational needs to be met, that our experiences can link to our emotions, thinking and behaviors, and that there is always hope not to matter what the circumstance or what your past.
Some of the most courageous people I know I have met in the counseling room ready to talk about their story. I look forward to connecting with you so that we can develop a specific plan for you and your story.

I love her, and as a therapist myself it means a lot when you find a colleague you respect!
Christina Crain has a very helpful technique that flawless intertwines faith and emotional healing. I’ve only had two sessions so far, but I have learned so much already! I would recommend her for anyone who is interested in a faith based, wholistic healing process.
Christina is the best therapist I've ever had! She is patient, knowledgeable and shares my Christian values. From the very beginning, she made me so comfortable I never felt self-conscious or hesitant to share my concerns, dreams. Therapy with her feels like I'm talking to a friend, and I will always be grateful for that.
Christina is a very approachable counselor. She has created a very comfortable atmosphere in her virtual sessions and I feel very confident in her advice and counsel. She explains things perfectly and helps me see what options are in front of me. I look forward to continuing to work with her!
God really blessed me when he "connected" Christina and I in this forum. I was suffering intense grief from the loss of our adult daughter and family conflict that arose thereafter. Christina listened to me whether through my messages or online video chats - and I felt like she was walking my life with me providing encouragement, reflection, wisdom and spiritual guidance. I am so blessed to have spent time with her learning more about myself and best ways to work through stresses in life. I love that she prayed for me and with me at the end of each session... and I am grateful to have taken notes to reflect on. With a grateful heart - Christina is amazing.
Christina takes the time to really understand me as a person with my own background and opinions. She helps me make healthy decisions by guiding me through the process so that I can navigate it on my own next time!
