She seeks to inspire her patients so they can become their best selves. Christine focuses on helping individuals heal and tap into their inner strengths.

She creates individualized treatment plans by pulling techniques from trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing.

She often assists patients dealing with anxiety, break-ups, healing from abuse or trauma, and negative self-talk. She also has experience working with survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual violence, children with behavioral concerns, adoptees, and those involved in the foster care system. She is culturally sensitive and provides services in both English and Spanish. In her spare time, Christine loves traveling, learning about new cultures, and spending time with family and friends.
