Christine Shield


About me

I have over 14 years of experience working in mental health services, in intensive inpatient and varied outpatient settings, working with all treatment modalities and multiple practice theories, serving diverse Medi-Cal, managed care, special education and privately funded clients. I also have many additional years of experience providing Christian Counseling.

I work primarily with women. My specialties include: short-term and longer-term Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, art and play therapy, systems theory, anxiety, depression, communication, conflict resolution and parenting skills, training, instruction, Christian counseling and psychoeducational trainings.

I incorporate a warm and engaging therapy style. I have had many years of experience as a clinical therapist and supervising other clinical therapists, which has allowed me to continually refine my style.

I know that it is difficult to trust someone new with your personal thoughts and feelings. I will go out of my way to earn the privilege of being someone worthy of your trust. We can then work together on issues that affect your quality of life.
