About

Sometimes it helps to shift our perspective, even slightly. What we have been doing is comfortable, but not necessarily effective. People are full of life and strength and vigor; and they are the primary architects for their happiness. Things that happen to us that aren't our fault, and we still have to resolve them anyway. Counseling can help make the perspective shift, and uncover the life, strength and vigor in all of us. I exclusively provide comprehensive DBT or DBT Complex Trauma models.
Christina provides comprehensive DBT for adults (not teens currently) with Maine DBT. Are your emotions in control of you? DBT can help you use the information that emotions provide without automatically following through the negative behaviors they may suggest. I DONT offer substance use evaluations or DEEP.
Intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in 2011, Christina has extensive experience providing individual and group DBT treatment and has trained over 150 therapists in DBT. Christina provides comprehensive DBT treatment, which includes clients enrolled in a DBT skills group concurrent to therapy.
