I have a relational treatment approach which means that the relationship that develops between you and me is the most important ingredient for success. Because of this approach you can expect me to be somewhat casual and approachable. I use humor and compassion to create connection. This connection creates a safe place for us to exchange ideas, to talk about experiences and to share honestly with one another. I have 3 years of experience working with families traumatized by domestic violence, substance use, involvement with law-enforcement and forced separation of family members. Supporting families faced with these circumstances has given me a strong skill set to support people with depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and a general loss of control over their lives. I help people to sort through difficult emotions, understand complicated relationships and to create the clarity needed to make changes. Through our work together, you can learn to develop skills and insight to overcome negative emotions and to make the changes necessary to feel better.
These issues and many others can create stress in couples relationships. I offer relationship counseling to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, to reduce tension and find happiness in their partnership. Within my couples counseling practice, I also provide support for parenting. Parenting can be the most difficult and most rewarding endeavor. I can help you develop effective parenting practices no matter how your family came into being. Whether you built your family traditionally or through adoption, fostering, kin-care, or remarriage, I can help you make parenting an enjoyable and love-filled experience.

Christin has been instrumental in helping us understand our trigger points and work through our issues together. It’s helped us create a stronger bond in a short time period.
I love Christin’s approach and sweetness when writing to us. She is kind.
Christin is super helpful, understanding, and really cares about the feelings and thoughts of both partners. I would highly recommend her!
