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".

Deadlines, demands, sickness. It feels like you can’t keep up. Everyone wants a piece of you and there is not enough to go around. You are exhausted and your mind won't shut off. The What if's overwhelm you... "What if I am not good enough? What if I let everyone down?" Your family, your job, your friends are counting on you. You may wonder, "When is it about what I need?" only to feel selfish and guilty about that too.

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.

At times we have lived a certain way, thinking certain thoughts for so long that we stop hoping or believing that we could ever feel or be any other way. Through counseling, we begin to discover that certain things we have believed and ways that we have been thinking are causing undue suffering. Having discovered this, we can then make new decisions and choices resulting in a better life that we enjoy living.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." - Unknown I believe that we have the answers to our own struggles, but sometimes we just need help accessing those answers. My approach to counseling is one of helping my clients understand themselves better so that they can face life's difficulties with confidence.

Life is full of challenging times and transitions and I understand how vital compassion and support can be when struggling through these challenges. I have spent the last few years working with foster, adopted, and troubled youth in residential treatment, rehousing programs, and case management. I am passionate about enhancing healthy coping, communication, and attachment skills while fostering a safe environment for individuals and families to process grief, trauma, loss, and day to day struggles. I work with all ages but especially love helping children and youth affected by foster care and adoption.

Hello! To say my life has been interesting is an understatement. If it's unusual or a rare thing it's most likely happened to me or I've helped someone dealing with it. In order to be a well-rounded therapist, I have worked in state agencies, schools, and now for myself. I dedicated five years to fulfill contracts with the military (all over the world) to assist active duty and their families. It's very important to me to make sure your therapy is in tune with your needs. I don't do cookie-cutter therapy. I proudly call my business LHC and Company because I believe in teamwork with you and those I need to get the work done.

Are you finding yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and not sure how to cope? Perhaps you have a natural tendency to please and take care of others, but then find yourself struggling to cope. During my 20 plus years as a therapist, I've helped people with a variety of difficulties, and have developed a special interest in working with those who have a tendency to please and take care of others. I get you! You likely have difficulty saying "no" and end up taking on too much; you may struggle with feeling overwhelmed and stuck, lacking motivation, and likely feeling depressed, lonely, and/or anxious.

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.

Whether its difficulty navigating a toxic work environment, dealing with a difficult boss, experiencing marriage or relationship problems, or feeling lost and alone you may need to evaluate what your needs or wants are. Your mind and body is telling you something if you are feeling stressed, feeling sad, have problems sleeping, feeling lonely even in a crowd, or getting angry over the littlest thing, its letting you know change needs to happen. We all struggle at times with trying to navigate life and I believe that we all could benefit from support. Reaching out for help is the key to working towards a healthier way of living.
