I have experience in working with a wide variety of clients including people who have struggled with mood disorders, trauma, ADHD, issues related to self esteem and body image, eating disorders, life transitions, etc.
The choice of whom to see in therapy and the goals for treatment must be personal and individualized in order for the treatment to be a success. I believe that I am well suited to working with all ages, and with various types of interaction and relationship issues; problems that may be found in these areas stem from a vast number of issues, ranging from trauma to anger. I look forward to searching with you for the best solutions to your stressors and life struggles.

Everyone has long-standing behavior patterns, habitual perceptions, and irrational beliefs - left unexamined some of these are going to undermine your happiness. As a cognitive-constructivist (wordy way of saying we choose how we make sense of the world) my goal is to help you see things from different perspectives and to respond to life's challenges in new and more rewarding ways. Just as you have taught your body to respond reflexively, your thinking has also become reflexive. When you become aware of your patterned thoughts and emotional reflexes, you can decide what works for you and what works against you.
I am a sensitive and empathetic Integrative psychotherapist. I believe that counseling should be a warm, relaxed, and comfortable experience, involving genuine caring, acceptance, & non-judgement. I believe in building authentic relationships w/my clients. I think that one of the most important aspects of the therapeutic process is the relationship between client and therapist, and I strive to be warm, empathetic, supportive, and trusting. I work with clients from a strengths-based, positive, and affirming perspective.
Hi, my name is Christy Tackwell and I work with adults, teens and children in my private practice. I would say that I am eclectic and use both traditional and alternative forms of therapy such as Art Therapy. I believe in a good working relationship in order to build trust so that the client is comfortable. The client is accepted for who they are and where they are. I believe in creating a safe and confidential environment so that the person can move at his or her own pace towards their therapy goals. Identifying issues and possible solutions is very important.

One of the most difficult things is to watch your child struggle and not know exactly how to help. I am a compassionate counselor with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of different issues including anxiety, behavioral issues, depression, grief, and trauma. I use play therapy and sand tray so that your child can express themselves, in a safe, non-judgmental space. I also use a person-centered and strengths-based approach, to empower you to tap into your own strengths to bring about meaningful, positive change in your life.
In these turbulent times, you may feel you need counseling more than ever. So many feel anxious, depressed, or haunted by old traumas they thought were laid to bed. We have professional therapists that help resolve anxiety, depression, PTSD, domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, grief, family conflict, and relationship issues. We help children, adolescents, and adults. Currently, we are offering telehealth and in-person sessions. So, if you call today, expect to be scheduled for an intake appointment in about a week.
My clients bring in a range of issues and have varying ideas of what they would like to change about themselves and/or their lives -- but they all have one thing in common, and that is motivation for change. Therapy can, and should, be a place for self-reflection and self-improvement and I am here to support that process. While a lot of my experience has been with children/adolescents and mood disorders, I approach every client with an open mind and heart, and strive to always create a safe and inviting space.
Over 25 years I've had the privilege of helping children, teens, parents, co-parents, adults, and families; facing tough and painful circumstances. A career with Family and Children's and Delinquency Court, gives me useful perspective for those involved in legal matters. Parents are powerful; good and bad. I work to improve, empower and educate for more effective relationships. Children and teens often need an objective ear to help them with increasing pressure. Adults seeking support and problem-solving tools for relationships, career, and childhood effects are also valued focus. This includes the effects of trauma and abuse.
Therapy? Who needs therapy? Not you, right? Yeah, that's what I thought too. After all, we should be able to just "handle things" without the help of some head-shrinker, shouldn't we?
The truth is, you probably don't need therapy.
You're not going to stop breathing without it. Another truth is that life is full of pressure and stress, and it's hard for anyone to handle it all alone. Many of us are dealing with childhood or adult traumas, anxiety and depression, and trouble trusting others. We don't always know how to reach out or ask for help.
I'm am interested in working with individuals, couples, and families who are committed to their own personal growth, healing, and well being. I help people who have hit one of life's many unpredictable speed bumps and need help to go over it, increase their vibrational frequency, capacity for joy, and get on with their wild and precious lives.
Do you sometimes or often find yourself feeling sad or overwhelmed by life's demands? You're certainly not alone. Life is unpredictable and occasionally difficult to handle. I can help you discover why you might be experiencing difficulty in finding joy and meaning in your life. I've helped many clients gain insight and make positive and lasting changes.My goal is to help clients find contentment and fulfilment through positive coping skills.
