Christine Haines

LCSW-C

About Me

Christine Haines earned her Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Maryland and has worked at the Allegany County Department of Social Services for many years. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) in the state of Maryland.

Christine believes that the comprehensive nature of man is a complex interweaving of body, mind and spirit. The integration of theological and psychological principles is a must for complete healing. I am a Biblically-based counselor, seeking to integrate my theological position with an eclectic approach to existing theories of personality and psychotherapy.

As Christine strives to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and my client needs, shea often use a Cognitive-Behavioral approach and the Biblical principles found in Twelve-Step programs for clients struggling with addictions.

Scripture is consistently utilized as a powerful tool in counseling as she strives to educate, encourage, comfort, and confront clients with the truth about their individual issues.

Scripture is often incorporated into homework assignments and relaxation exercises. Christine prays with clients on a regular basis and encourage them to seek direction from God in their private prayer lives. Prayer is also an effective tool used while teaching clients how to release their emotions appropriately.

Christine's areas of expertise involve working with adults and adolescents experiencing a variety of issues such as anxiety, ADHD, substance abuse, trauma, bariatric patients, and others who are attempting to overcome life transitions.

Christine and her husband, Wesley, have two children and two grandchild. They reside in Cumberland, MD and participate in the outreach ministry of Sharing Life Ministries.

Written on Nov 07, 2022 after therapy with Christine for 2 months

Christine is great at listening. I struggled with prior therapists as I struggled to feel they were truly listening. Her ability to listen encouraged me to be honest so that I could get the most of our sessions, and she always had sharp, precise insights that helped me understand so much of situations that previously had my head spinning for years. Her strong understanding of the Word was evident all throughout, and helped me see how God counsels and strengths me in all that I do. She has helped me strengthen and grow my faith in equipping me with spiritual tools to confidently stop attending counseling and walk through life more confidently in God. Thank you, Christine!
