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".

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.

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.

I firmly believe that healing and growth take place in the context of relationships. Unfortunately for many of us, our relationships have become distant, disconnected and a place of conflict, leaving us with unmet needs and just feeling “stuck.” We don’t feel safe asking for what we need, and maybe don’t even know what we need ourselves. The therapeutic relationship in counseling provides an authentic and safe place in which healing can begin to take place.

I believe connecting humans back to the Earth is a source of healing. Because of this, I am exploring how to use adventure-based therapy in my work with my clients. Currently, I am able to offer therapy intensives outside, whether that’s sitting in a quiet park or hiking a local trail. Through Beyond Healing Center, I am also able to offer healing retreats using Equine Therapy on a beautiful farm. I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is of utmost importance. Finding a therapist that you connect with is a difficult task and therefore, I offer a free initial appointment.

Many people seeking help for themselves, their relationship , or their children do not always receive the amount of care needed to adequately address the root cause.
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.

The therapeutic relationship is a unique one and I do not take it lightly when someone allows me into their life for part of their journey.
My ideal client to work with is one who comes ready to look at the why behind the what, going deeper to understand the roots that cause one to act and think the way they do. The purpose and goal in being curious about the roots is to heal from the wounds and deep-rooted beliefs about ourselves and the world that we have picked up along our own journey in life. The benefit of this work is to live more freely in the Truth of who we were created to be, not allowing fear and past wounds to control one’s life. This growth can equip and lead to more safe, connected, and healthy relationships with ourselves and our loved ones.

Dealing with a life change or crisis, ongoing mental health concern or relationship issues can be very challenging alone. I am here to provide support through these issues. Meeting with me on a weekly to monthly basis can help you change thoughts and behaviors that affect your emotions. Each person I meet with was brought up differently, thinks differently and has experienced life differently. So I develop a treatment plan for each person to meet their needs. Contact me to see if I can help you through this time in your life.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a West Plains relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in West Plains.
