Hello, I’m Christi. Welcome! It seems you are ready for change – let’s get started! I work collaboratively with clients to develop and accomplish goals for making changes, handling transitions, and processing difficult issues. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, behavioral addictions, big changes in your life, or other challenges, we can work together to find the best pathway through it, while developing the skills you need to handle the hurdles in your way.
I graduated with a Master’s (MA) from Antioch University, specializing in Mental Health Counseling (LMHC) and Drama Therapy (DT), and have worked for three years in the Chemical Dependency (CDPT) field. I believe that you are the expert in your life and what changes you are ready to make. I also believe in collaborative work with you, supporting and affirming your treatment goals, while also challenging any patterns that might keep you from reaching your goals.
My specialties are in Strengths-based therapy, drama therapy, Narrative therapy, Gestalt, Motivational Interviewing, Experiential therapies, DBT, and Mindfulness. To put it plainly, I tend to focus on the here and now, and how the past, present, or future is impacting you in the moment.
Together, we can work to navigate your next steps, and explore your experiences, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, in order to identify the ways in which you can begin to make meaningful changes in your life. Let’s uncover and develop the undiscovered you!
Please complete the intake paperwork prior to your first session and bring it with you, along with your insurance card. Or, you may arrange to come a half hour early to fill out the paperwork when you arrive (please let me know if you need this). You can find the intake packets on the homepage of this website.
