About Me

Welcome! It is so amazing that you are taking this first step to help your family. I have my own practice called Powerful Purpose Counseling and my favorite clients to work with are teens. Teens are real, want to be heard and deep down are longing for that connection with their caregiver /family. I love the rawness of teens, that their emotions are so sincere and that they are ready for a change (sometimes they don't know it when they first arrive at your office)! Helping teens express their feelings, validating them, or challenging some of that negative thinking, is really an amazing experience.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 8 years of clinical counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and esteem and confidence challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and all it takes is that first step. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I can appreciate Christine's Christian background, particularly concerning positive, kind, and caring ways to address my concerns. Further, Christine is very patient with the way I am able to articulate and explain the things I am dealing with and has a fine aptitude for assisting me in the same. Her services are exceptionally beneficial to me and I am recognizing how much better I feel after just two therapy sessions. I am very pleased.

Christine has been a real blessing to us. My daughter needed an outlet that would listen and teach her how to cope with anxiety. She has walked her through the anxiety thought patterns and taught her how to challenge her thoughts and talk herself through these moments. My daughter has been so confident in her ability to cope and has really blossomed personally. So grateful for this service and Christine.

Meeting with Christine for the first time felt like I was meeting with a long-time trusted friend. She offered valuable advice supported with real-life examples and really took time to listen to my main concern during our session. I look forward to working with Christine again.

What an amazing woman of God and I can spend hours just talking to her because she is concerned for those that are hurting from drug addiction as well as being supportive and show empath. She really has a God center heart and knows what she is doing. I mean I only had one session with her so far but she made me fell welcome and at home and there are times that is hard for people to get me to talk about things. But since I talk to her, there was a w wight that that came up off my shoulder. Awesome woman.

Work with me!
