About Me

My goal is to help people find meaning and purpose in life, find common pathways between actions and thoughts and create a safe place to find positive solutions. I can find creative ways to approach growth and change in daily lives. For many people, change is difficult, and they cannot move past the barrier of unfamiliar feelings. Together, we find solutions that help move away from anxiety and unfamiliar feelings towards self-confidence.

I am an experienced, trained and Licensed Marriage and Family therapist and a life coach that corresponds with my clinical skills and experience specializing in treating individuals with mental, emotional or behavioral disorders or couples experiencing relationship distress. I am skilled to treat not only the disorder but the impact these disorders have on an interpersonal level, relationship networks such as social setting, school, dating, marriage relationships and families. I have worked with individuals, couples and families with various types of needs including mental health issues, relationship or family issues, intimacy and sexuality, relationship addiction, co-dependency, self-esteem, abuse in all forms, deciding to separate or breakup and working through the break up for almost 17 years both online and in my private practice. Not only am I a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I consultant as a Family Divorce Mediator, Child Custody Evaluator, a Nationally Certified Parent Instructor and a Qualified Parent Coordinator.

Empathy, compassion and understanding help to take a relational, non-judgmental approach to my work. I aim to make each client feel accomplishment and strength along with realizing their role in finding positive change. I specialize in helping people improve their individual selves or their relationships, move out of feeling stuck, and reduce their anxiety, depression or anger.

I encourage a non-adversarial approach in identifying individual, needs and strengths to determine where the breakdown in an individual or relationship occurred in order to strengthen, restructure, reorganize and rebuild.

My innate strength of understanding, empathy, compassion, and integrity is my foundation for professional services. My instinctive strengths help in my ability to effectively identify and determine unhealthy individual or relationship patterns to provide direct, simple and straight forward techniques of communicating. This is instrumental in helping people stay grounded, focused and validated. I am a kind, empathetic, compassionate and thoughtful therapist with a personality and list of skills that sets me apart.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy correspond with my style; However, I prefer to individualize treatment for each client by choosing the specific type of theory or therapy that meets individual, relationship or family needs that target the desired outcome of therapy.

Christine was absolutely amazing. Her responsiveness was great. She would ask the right questions at the right times and I could not imagine going through my situation without her guidance.

Dr. Whittaker has been so helpful to both me and my partner. We came to her for relationship maintenance, and she gave us lots of strategies for better communication as well as valuable insights to help us be the best couple we can be. She is a great listener, and is very knowledgeable about different personality types. After working with her for a month, we feel more confident in our relationship and in ourselves. We will definitely work with her again in the future!
