My name is Christie, and I am a licensed professional counselor. I am glad you have the courage to consider counseling. Sometimes as individuals, we lose sight of what is important to us when life is messy, and with counseling, it can identify your strengths and goals to get you where you want to be in life. I want to walk with you through this experience of uncertainty, and create a clear picture of what life can look like for you. I am a caring, compassionate, and insightful counselor who focuses on what truly matters to you. I create an environment for you to feel comfortable discussing your issues and work through them at your pace. The goal in counseling is for you to cope with struggles, understand yourself better, and gain healthy strategies to take with you and continue to apply throughout your life. With courage and support, change is possible one step at a time. Be empowered to make the change in your life!
I have worked with many different issues with a variety of people in my career. Some of those issues include anxiety, depression, stress, grief, trauma, self-esteem, communication skills, trust issues, relationship issues, and family conflict. I work with individuals, couples, and families who need counseling services.
