About me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Master Addiction Counselor, Mental health and integrative medical nutritionist, personal trainer and fitness instructor. I graduated from University of Southern Mississippi with my Bachelor and Masters degree. I believe in looking at a person from a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual perspective. I believe change is the key to solving problems and developing overall well being. I am very loving and understanding, but also very direct and honest. I believe a therapist is here to help a person that is struggling to identify what they need or want in life and explore ways to find that place. I feel finding a purpose for yourself will increase will and confidence. I believe you must take care of yourself physically in order to grow in other areas and must have a spiritual foundation in order to deal with past experiences and enjoy future ones.

I have worked as a therapist since 1993, so 30 years of dealing with individuals and families that are struggling with depression, anxiety, past trauma, and addictions. I have worked in treatment centers and mental hospitals with inpatient and private practice for outpatient. I thoroughly enjoy working with couples to improve a marriage or premarital counseling to set a strong foundation. I am licensed in Mississippi and Alabama. I am married with 5 children and believe that my own past experiences are a part of my training and ability to help others. Being a Christian, I feel God helps us through events and trials in our lives so that we can help others.

My husband and I really love Christi! She hears what we say and understands the things we don’t even say. She works hard to uncover all the issues! Would definitely recommend her.

She is awesome! She is as a great listener and knew exactly what us as a couple need to work on and things as individuals as well. She broke things down for me to understand very clear. She’s the best

Christi was great. She took the time to understand our points of view and help us figure out a solution for our issues. She is also very personable and funny. She gave us worksheets that were instrumental in helping us with communication and identifying our issues. It was a great experience.

Sarai Christi Webb- Varderpoorten has helped my husband and me with our communication skills. We are using the techniques we learned from our therapist to improve our relationship. We both appreciate the expertise and advice that has helped us grow a strong bond with each other.

I have talked to a few therapists and counselors throughout my life and honestly I’ve been more impressed with Christi than all the other combined. Her demeanor, knowledge, and approach really made my husband and I both feel comfortable and we typically prefer different styles so this was even more amazing. After our session we had actual action items that we could use until our next session and that has already been beneficial. We both felt extremely comfortable sharing difficult and personal details and knew that Christi would be respectful and not judge. I cannot recommend Christi enough!
