Life sometimes brings challenging situations that have us questioning ourselves and how to move forward.

Christy creates a safe and validating environment for each person to process difficult topics. She is passionate about supporting others in discovering their inner strengths and developing healthy coping skills.
Christy views counseling as a collaborative process, where the counselor and client work together to uncover the client’s personal values that inform important life decisions. She is person centered in her approach to counseling; she understands that every person’s story and situation is unique and valid. When working with couples, Christy takes a Gottman approach, which integrates empirical evidence on what makes love last based on the Sound Relationship House Theory.
