Hi! I’m Christie. And I’m glad you’re here.

When you work with me, you get a therapist who

practices what she preaches.

I know from doing my own hard work to break free from my past, and from helping hundreds of amazing mission-driven professionals like you, that your greatest fear is that you won’t live up to your potential.

I can support you through the sometimes-challenging-but-so-worth-it process of resolving old self-defeating beliefs so that you can finally

reach your potential and fulfill your purpose.

I believe the world needs what you have to offer, and only you can make your unique contribution.

My mission is to empower you to share your uniqueness with the world.

Consider this your invitation...

It’s time for something different.

You have worked hard to overcome some early life challenges and to achieve some of the dreams you have for yourself. You know you have so much more potential, but it always feels like something is getting in the way. You’re trying to get into that flow, that zone of genius, but you always end up stuck in that same old spot of “I’m not good enough.”

You keep retreating, shrinking yourself, and sabotaging your own success. Your life looks successful on the outside, but on the inside it doesn’t feel as satisfying as you thought it would.

Deep down you might be thinking you’ve been settling and selling yourself short, but you’re not really sure how to change that on your own.

If you’re tired of going around in circles, then it’s time to do something new. And this time you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

I believe in...

My values are authenticity, empowerment and excellence – for me and for you.

I believe in working to be the best therapist I can be so that I can provide you with the best care possible.

I am committed to clinical excellence and ongoing learning. I seek out regular consultation, stay informed on the latest research, and continuously pursue advanced training.

    • Performance Anxiety
    • Confidence Issues
    • Creative Blocks
    • Perfectionism & Shame
    • Stress & Burnout
    • Painful Childhood Experiences
    • Anxiety

My approach to therapy is...

I believe in addressing root causes and healing from the inside out.

I utilize the powerful effectiveness of EMDR along with other evidence-based approaches. I customize your therapeutic process to meet your needs.

My approach is direct, comprehensive, and grounded in up-to-date research on trauma, attachment and the mind/body connection.
