As an evidence-based therapist, I utilize current research & clients' values & goals to work collaboratively with clients throughout the treatment process. Many clients who seek me out are looking for assistance with stress, trauma, anxiety, or pain reduction & often have tried therapy before & are looking for something different. I also see many therapists, educators, & health care professionals in my practice. In addition to standard CBT and other evidence-based practices, I have expertise in mindfulness -based interventions & yoga. My style is interactive, trauma-sensitive, and I honor where a client is at throughout the process.

I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) techniques as well as mindfulness practice tailored to you in the process of treatment.
Coping with life challenges can be a difficult journey to navigate and each of us does so in our own unique way. Some of these experiences happen in moments yet leave an impact for a lifetime. Whether you are dealing with a traumatic experience, depression, anxiety or difficulty adjusting to changes in your life, it can get in the way of your ability to function in healthy ways. Having a sense of feeling stuck, loneliness or fear are all to common experiences and having a skilled therapist can guide you towards living a more satisfying life. My hope is to guide my clients to a deeper understanding of their thoughts and emotions.

Hi there! I am Christine :) I am a passionate-practicing LCPC in North Naperville. I have over 10 years of experience. I enjoy working with adults who have problematic relationships, childhood issues, and who feel stuck in their present life. It might be trauma, depression, anxiety, but whatever it is we can help you get "unstuck" together. I believe everyone has potential to help themselves, but sometimes we need some guidance. Many of us weren't taught how to deal with our emotions and feelings, and as a result, our adult lives suffer in ways we aren't educated to fix. I am here to help guide YOU to your BEST SELF.
