My Approach to Helping

Hi! My name is Christi.

Overwhelmed, exhausted or anxious? Struggling to set boundaries and communicate effectively? Tired of trying to measure up to what's on everyone else's social media page?

If so, I commend you for taking the first steps toward a happier, more peaceful and balanced life! Making the choice to create positive change can be difficult, but it's well worth the effort. Drawing from over 20 years of community mental health and private practice clinical experience, my approach utilizes a combination of evidence-based techniques that will be individually tailored to your specific emotional, spiritual and relational needs. Coming from a place of genuine empathy and respect, I'll work to help you find clarity in your situation and redefine issues to make them easier to address. Together, we can identify and implement new skills to better manage stress and anxiety. By building on your strengths, I'd like to help you feel empowered and ready to achieve lasting change.

Therapy doesn't have to be a scary or mysterious process. It's just a series of conversations about a subject in which you are a true expert: yourself. You've already taken the first step toward change, just by reaching out. Let's figure out how to get you to where you want to be!

More Info About My Practice

I am licensed in both Texas and Alaska and often work with people in remote and rural areas as a telehealth practitioner. I grew up in rural Texas, so I am familiar with living far away from most everything, feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere, and having limited resources available when you need them most. So my mission is to bring competent and effective mental health services to you, wherever you might be.
