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.

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.

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.

My clients are successful, highly-motivated professionals who find that certain areas of life are becoming unmanageable. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT®) specializing in sex/porn addictions, partners of sex addicts, multiple addictions, trauma, abuse, and PTSD. I trained under Patrick Carnes at the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). Under Dan Allender I earned an advanced counseling certificate in trauma-focused narrative therapy. Addiction, abuse and trauma are viewed as symptoms rather than defining characteristics. I seek an approach to recovery that embraces positive, proactive, sustainable change.

I enjoy helping children, families, and young adult individuals improve their mental and emotional functioning through evidence based approaches such as Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
It is important to me that all individuals feel welcome and supported during the counseling process and I am passionate about creating a safe and secure atmosphere to assist clients in overcoming whatever challenges they might be facing. I have worked with a diverse population of clientele, including teen and adult members of the LGBTQ+ community, and have experience working in a residential setting to help children and their families overcome trauma, behavioral, and mental health issues. I also have experience working with adult individuals and couples to improve their relationships and overall well-being.

Life's challenges have intensified over the last year for many of us. Our mental health has also been challenged. Feeling safe and connected are universal needs. When things become unbalanced, it is easy for symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD to increase.

Healthy sexuality is our objective in sexual addiction. Sex is an integral and balanced part of life experience. Sexual behaviors become problematic when they violate vows and values, are dishonest, harmful to others, put you at risk, diminishes your joy in life, act as a barrier filled with shame, self-contempt, and isolation. Sexual health creates intimacy and closeness, characterized by trust, respect, joy and safety. Sexual health can be achieved by sex addicts in recovery. The trauma and addiction model identifies the trauma and internal system that underwrites addiction and does not view problematic behavior as moral failure.

I seriously understand how scary change can be. You are the only person who can decide when it's time to take control of your own mental health. Think about what it would feel like to truly, LAUGH, again. I am a professional mental health provider with profound experience in working with those seeking change. Change in your personal life. Change in your relationships with others. Change in how you parent. Change in understanding that you have the tools/power to reduce your own anxiety/depression. Change that you can choose not to carry your trauma forward.

"Currently offering sessions via Telehealth/online as we navigate this new terrain together." Life can sometimes feel overwhelming, and relationships like a constant struggle. We have a knowledge that it wasn’t meant to be this way and feel compelled to take the first steps toward wholeness but sometimes don’t know where to begin. Through compassion and empathy, I partner with clients to begin their healing journey. I seek first to understand their story, providing a safe and secure place to process the pain. It is my core belief that no problem is too messy and no challenging situation is without hope.

I specialize in three types of clients- men and women who use food as a way to cope with life's stressors, individuals and/or partners of those that want to quit smoking and those who want a safe space to process difficult moments. As a therapist, I value working together as a team to learn ways to sit with, process and cope with the challenges of life. I value your time and I am confident that we can work together in a safe place to find peace, healing, and happiness. My genuine sense of curiosity inspires me to listen whole heartedly and to approach experiences with a focus on prioritizing relationships, connection and empathy.

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.

Have you been suffering in silence or struggling with relationships? Know that hope is near. We all have experienced pain that if left untreated, can keep us trapped, inhibiting our ability to enjoy life and genuinely connect with others. There are three main areas that are near and dear to my heart: Children who’ve gone through adverse life experiences, women having difficulty navigating life stages, and victims or survivors of betrayal trauma: emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Know that it will take time to heal, courage to face the reality of your experience, and a steady commitment to your own healing.

Life can present us with many unwanted and unexpected situations. Sometimes, it can be a traumatic situation, or maybe you are dealing with a child who has become withdrawn, not speaking, and is not socializing with the family. Perhaps you have some past trauma that has not been fully explored or resolved, or anxiety about the future. Whatever the circumstances, counseling may be able to help. As an LCSW practicing in Southwest Missouri, I have worked with clients of all ages and with many different issues, including anxiety, depression, and ADHD as well as with patients experiencing past and current trauma.
