“If I let myself really understand another person, I might be changed by that understanding. And we all fear change. So as I say, it is not an easy thing to permit oneself to understand an individual,” Carl Rogers

Intro

I am a firm believer that having a safe place to build connection is paramount to the healing process. Beginning the therapy process is a vulnerable experience, and I understand that it takes courage and intention to make that first step. My goal for all of my clients is to build trust in our ability to identify, make sense of, and, if necessary, restructure old ways of thinking that are no longer helpful. I will provide a safe and compassionate space where clients feel able to challenge themselves to grow into the person they want to be.

Education

Christina conferred her Master of Science at Lipscomb University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialty in Play Therapy as well as her Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, double majoring in Psychology and World Religion.

Style

Christina utilizes a multifaceted approach that is primarily rooted in person-centered therapy. Christina believes that you are the expert of your own experience, and with therapeutic support, you are able to establish the path that is best for you. She believes in identifying cognitions and behaviors that were formed out of survival, and determining if they still serve a helpful purpose or if they are maladaptive. Applying modalities such as play therapy, expressive arts, and EMDR, Christina is able to work with clients whatever stage of their journey

Hobbies

You can find Christina taking her dog, Cannoli, for a walk in her free time. She also loves cooking for and hosting her family and friends. Her favorite way to spend quality time is scoping out new restaurants and experiences around town with her people.
