Christine Shaw, MABC, CAPC, Counselor in Devon
Working primarily with couples, women, and youth, I assist clients with personal growth and relationships, conflict, grief/loss, abuse recovery, self-image and sexuality, faith matters and career direction. With professional and biblical counseling training, and cross-cultural experience, I am sensitive to complex issues. Pursuing PA state licensure, clients benefit from the input of my clinical supervisors. I integrate family-of-origin work, emotion-focused, and experiential strategies. I work with youth under a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor.
I use Prepare-Enrich with pre-marital couples. This assessment can also be used with married couples, for a fresh view of strengths and growth areas. My approach draws upon attachment, trauma, and family systems theories, as well as faith-based models, and tools for skills-enhancement.
