Christine Havekost is a licensed clinical social worker. Christine has been treating patients since 1996 and strives to make her patients feel comfortable and safe. She encourages her patients to confront their challenges and supports them through this process, exploring the issues in their lives and pursuing their goals. Christine’s ultimate goal is to motivate patients so they feel able to build on their strengths and enrich their lives. Christine’s style in the session is informal and interactive. She likes to use a problem-solving approach. She often uses cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychotherapy techniques, and a supportive approach, but she has an eclectic style, so she can be flexible and cater to each patient’s needs.

Christine treats patients 18 and older in dealing with a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, sleep issues, stress, divorce and other major life changes, infidelity, gender issues, trauma, and mood disorders. In her spare time, Christine likes to dance, cook, swim, practice tai chi, meditate, and take long drives to vineyards. Christine enjoys working with SohoMD because the staff is extremely supportive and helpful.
