Christine Toler

(LPC-MHSP)

About Me

Hi. My name is Christine Toler, please call me Chris, and I earned my Ed.S and LPC- MHSP in the state of Tennessee. I have been licensed as a Professional Counselor since 2010, and a School Counselor since 2006.
I started being a believer in therapy when it first helped me over forty years ago, (as a child). I thought what a wonderful way to get to the root of the problem... and get rid of it. As I stated, I have been employed as a School Counselor for over a decade while getting my license to practice on my own, as well as beginning a small client base on my own. As a result, I have become very comfortable working with teens and their parents. Not only do I remember not being an easy teen to deal with, I also remember my teens not being very easy to please and at the same time, keep them close to home and family. I will say, I did not have social media to deal with personally as a teen, or even when my children were teens, but learned very quickly being in a school setting, how influential and damaging social media can be to children and young adults.

Christine is great. I look forward to our sessions. I feel like she understands my struggles and helps me through them, and I will handle them better in the future because of her work with me.

Christine is the best therapist I have ever had. She helped me come out of a severe depression and gave me tools to handle my every day anxiety. With her help, I am happy and healthy for the first time in my life. I would highly recommend Chris!

Christine is a great listener and helps me keep things in perpective. If I get overwhelemed, stressed, or feel out of control, she opens my eyes to the source and offers couping stratigies to deal with it. I enjoy our conversations and she helps me remeber to be grateful for the good in my life and in the world instead of me always focusing on the negatives and what ifs. She has been a God sent and I appreciate her guidence and support.

I’m loving working with Christine. She’s funny, she makes me laugh and feel comfortable every time we talk. I’m looking forward to continuing therapy with her. She’s great at responding to messages too which is nice.

Chris is so great. it usually takes me a while to trust an open up to someone but from the start her warm personality and the way she carries herself made me feel like she was someone I could definitely trust. Her perspective and insight opened up a whole new world of understanding for why I feel the way I feel. The work sheets she provides and the advice she gives helped from day one.

She is very supportive and caring but not always as clinical and scientific as I would like.

Christine is so warm, so open and so friendly. It's impossible not to have a strong rapport with her from the very first session. Christine is very knowledgeable in terms of psychoeducation and often shares this with an awesome sense of humour! I have really enjoyed my sessions with Christine and anyone who has the chance to work with her in therapy is very lucky and are in very good hands, just as I have been! My mood felt lifted after speaking with her each time. She has a very reassuring, very calming presence, where everything just feels a lot lighter in the world. She alleviated any confusion I had about things that were happening and difficult things I was feeling and she provided so much perspective and clarity to my situation. I really needed that at the time. Thank you, Christine!

Christine is very warm and easy to talk to. She is very empathetic and offers ways of reframing situations or dealing with them in a thoughtful manner. I was nervous to talk to a new therapist, but as soon as I spoke to her I felt right at ease. I highly recommend Christine and have actually already recommended her to a friend who is contemplating using teen counseling.
