About Me

Welcome to my profile page! It is exciting you are looking into finding support for whatever obstacles life is throwing your way to deter you from your own personal success and happiness. My experience is vast as I not only have the education, credentials and licensure to help people but I also have diverse LIFE experiences. This unique attribute allows me to view multiple perspectives and provide support and encouragement with a non-judgmental approach. I am collaborative and a great listener who will ensure we are working together to achieve YOUR therapy goal(s) while also respecting and including the supportive aspects of your spirituality. You will be provided with evidence-based knowledge, skills and Christian values to help you implement the changes you want to make in your life.

I earned my Masters of Science in Social Work and my Master of Science in Couples and Family Therapy from the Raymond A. Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville. It is important for you to know the Raymond A. Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville Couple's and Therapy program was 1 of only 2 credentialed programs in the United States at the time of my graduation. I reside just across the Ohio River in Southern Indiana and am licensed there to provide mental health counseling.

During my 4 1/2 years of clinical experience, I have worked with children who experienced anxiety, anger issues, social isolation, abuse and neglect and some who were on juvenile probation. I also have worked with clients who identified as LGBTQ, couples, blended families and parents who needed help to understand and support their children in more productive ways. Communication problems are an issue many people struggle with. This is an area of expertise for me as I have found this basic foundational piece of solid relationships to often be the key missing ingredient in secure relationships. We only know what we know; I hope you choose me to help you learn new skills for improving your quality of life!

Reviews

Written by C.A. on Jan 03, 2022 after therapy with Christina for 3 months

Christina has a great ability to listen to my story and ask subtle questions to unpack, process and analyze root causes that can then be worked through. She shares some really effective tools to engage renewing therapies which in turn have led to renewed mind and behaviours.. God is using Christiana’s gifts and talents to restore his kingdom and I’m thankful for her willingness to participate in his calling on her life.
