Christina Christie, MS, LCSWLicensed Clinical Social Worker
I am a licensed certified social worker with over 10 years experience working with children, adolescents, families, and couples. I enjoy helping people grow and thrive, assisting them in improving their relationships with others, increasing their self-esteem and helping them learn how to heal from difficult life situations. Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety are the specialty areas that I am most passionate about. Other areas that I enjoy treating are the following: grief/loss; adjustment to new life transitions; improving communication skills, and helping individuals, couples and families repair ruptures to their relationships.
I enjoy collaboratively helping people learn how to use their voice in treatment so they get better faster and thrive. I use evidence-based approaches to treat trauma in every age group such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure. For depression and anxiety, I utilize evidence-based treatments such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, behavioral activation, and mindfulness-based approaches.
