The relationship between therapist and client is one of the most important components in eliciting change. I believe in a collaborative approach where we work together in exploring what you would like to get out of therapy and figuring out how to get there. In this collaboration, I firmly believe that you are the expert of your own situation and that therapy can be used as a vessel to guide and empower the experts to take control of their own lives.
I practice with an integrative, culturally sensitive, and HAES aligned approach using Attachment theory and a Humanistic framework. I individualize my approach to fit the needs of the client and pull from evidence-based practices including, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness-Based Techniques.
I am credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) #C012623 by the North Carolina Social Work Certification and Licensure Board. I received a Master of Social Work with a clinical concentration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Bachelors of Social Work from East Carolina University.

Meet Christine, Owner and Therapist
My background is in clinical mental health, working in diverse settings including group practice, health care, non-profit, and higher education. I have experience working across all levels of care with a specialized focus on treating eating disorders, anxiety, trauma, and relationship distress. I also enjoy supporting folks who are navigating life transitions and exploring new facets of their identity.
Outside of work, I consider myself a traveler, a foodie, a pop culture enthusiast, and an animal lover. In my spare time, I find joy in exploring new restaurants, practicing yoga, listening to music, taking my dog Bella on adventures, and soaking up quality time with loved ones.
