Life can be messy, and it is okay to not be okay; but you do not have to face life’s challenges alone. As a Licensed Master Social Worker, I believe counseling should be a supportive and compassionate collaboration in which clients are accepted where they are in the present and are valued as the experts of their experiences. Life doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and I will work closely with individuals to consider their relationship with their environments in order to explore areas of strength as well as areas for potential growth.

I believe that all individuals will encounter a time in their lives when they will be facing some form of hardship, conflict, or distress. The ability for someone to recognize that they cannot go it alone and need a partner to assist them in navigating life situations is where I come into play. I believe that individuals can make the changes necessary in their lives with the proper supports and skills provided through counseling. Individuals who are ready to put in the work needed to navigate this life are the ones who will succeed.

Providing a safe space, being entrusted with vulnerability, and bearing witness to healing is an awe inspiring and mutually rewarding experience. Therefore, a good relationship is the first priority in therapy. Christine realizes that successful treatment begins with a strong therapeutic rapport. This focus allows clients to feel safe and understood, which is a strong catalyst for progress towards healing and achieving goals. Positive results can only occur once a therapeutic alliance is developed.

For the past 28 years, I have truly enjoyed helping individuals who really want to get well and are willing to work hard to achieve full recovery. I Have a Heart for helping Trauma Victims of all ages get to the root of the pain that keeps them stuck in their lives and relationships. Victims of Trauma often spend a lifetime reenacting their trauma in one relationship after another, until they finally give up on trying to "get it right".

As the sixth generation of my family to live in Howell County, I understand how foreign the concept of counseling may be to some people. Yet, as an Ozarker, I also understand the wit, humor, passion and intelligence of the people of this area, and I combine these traits with formal training and natural curiosity about people to create space for my clients to go through the healing process. Native Ozarker or not, it is my belief that everyone, at some point in their lives, will experience trauma, loss, or mental illness that is treatable through therapy.

Life can be overwhelming, exhausting, and even lonely at times. The everyday battle of constant pressures and overload of doubts, worries, and negativity can sometimes be too much. Especially, as a child, adolescent , or young adult who is trying to navigate the confusing balance of school, relationships, and expectations, while handling the changes that come with growing up. No matter where those pressures are coming from, having a safe space where you can connect, be heard, and work through those situations and emotions can be life changing.

Sometimes taking the first step can be the hardest. I help those on their search for self exploration and gender identity as well as depression and anxiety. I am a professional allied in LGBTQ+ treatment. Taking the first step can be scary but therapy is a place of safety, a place to have your thoughts and feelings heard and validated. A place where you are in control of what you want the conversation to be and what direction you take. Also offering group therapy for teens on Wednesday nights one for trauma (7-8pm) and one teen depression and resilience (530-630pm) at Ozarks Counseling Center for group please call 417-869-9011.

Teens and women ago through various life stages of young adulthood, conception, pregnancy, postpartum, infertility and loss. Each of these life stages come with unique challenges, which can feel overwhelming, and leave you grasping at straws trying to make life easier and make sense of it all. Even though these life challenges can be difficult, they can provide an opportunity for growth, self awareness, exploring your strengths, and finding hope. I enjoy working with teen girls, young adult women, and moms who may be feeling overwhelmed about daily life expectations, changing roles, and the day to day ins and outs of life.

I specialize in three types of clients— children who find it difficult to manage/express their emotions, teens overwhelmed with the thoughts/feelings that they just can’t seem to get rid of, and women who have tried endless self-help tricks but still feel stuck. Whether your child is struggling to make it through a school day without getting in trouble, your teen struggles to overcome the thoughts that burden them, or you’re wanting to finally experience the freedom you have been chasing after, it would be an honor to come alongside you in your healing journey.

Many families cannot afford the level of care needed for their teen to succeed; Awaken360 will provide services to all families in need of a specialized education environment through community scholarship funds, grants and/or subsidies, or a sliding-scale fee.
Prevention is always preferred. In life the saying goes 'luck favors the prepared'. In counseling, you are most effective when you can prevent struggles compared to reacting to them after they have begun. At Awaken360, we recognize that you and your family may recognize subtle changes in one another before anyone else does. At Awaken360 our heart is to reach people before struggles, mistakes, and hurt feelings begin to pile up and cause real damage not only to relationships, but your ability to have a happy life and future. We believe no situation is too far for help or repair and we seek to partner with you as you work to overcome the following struggles: histories of abuse, adoption or foster care struggles, attachment issues, infertility, stress management, marital/premarital counseling, emotional instability, impulsive or high-risk behaviors, separation or divorce, suicidal ideations, history of self harm, substance use/abuse, anger/aggression, involvement in judicial system, depression, anxiety, and trauma. Visit Awaken360.org to see real change that lasts and inquire about our three treatment options: Outpatient Counseling, Youth Therapeutic Academy, and Family Intensives.

Services include Individual Counseling, Family Counseling, Gender and Orientation-Affirming Therapy, Couples Counseling, Grief Counseling, Adolescent Counseling and Group Counseling.
I believe in a confidential, non-judgmental, relationship-centered counseling environment where individuals, families, and couples can openly and safely discuss their thoughts and feelings. Each client is treated with respect and supported to gain greater self-understanding and self-awareness. The client is at the center of therapy and determines the direction of therapy. I present different perspectives and ideas and help the client identify and develop their own ways to resolve blocks to personal growth and to improve communication and the relationships in their lives.

There are several reasons why people feel stuck in their life story that prevent them from growing into the person they want to become... A past that continues to return to the present, patterns that are unbreakable alone, major life changes, uncontrollable circumstances, feelings of shame - the list goes on. I love working with clients looking to improve themselves, their relationships, and learn to face their struggles.

You have a story. A very important and unique story. Sometimes your story keeps you stuck. It keeps you from being the best version of yourself. If your story involves trauma whether from sexual abuse, divorce as an adult or child, physical or verbal abuse, relationship conflict, boundary confusion, religious confusion, natural disasters, accidents, etc, I can help you reprocess these memories and the negative things that you tell yourself. It takes a lot of strength to reach out and ask for help however, I will provide you a safe space to do just that.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in West Plains and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
