Christi Gardner's bio

This content was provided by Christi Gardner "I practice from a narrative and relational perspective which emphasizes the importance of the ways you've overcome challenges in your life. Each of us holds beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. Recovery and growth occur when one can recognize their strengths as well as any limiting beliefs that are influencing behavior.I was raised in a very socioeconomically diverse neighborhood in Chicago and I understand that pain is manifested in myriad ways. I don't believe in the "expert" therapist role. I can learn much from you during this process, while providing you insight that I've gained in my formal education and professional experience."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Christi Gardner "Christi believes that effective therapy occurs by tailoring a treatment approach to your unique desires, needs, and interests. Christi draws from narrative and psychodynamic approaches in treatment, but also utilizes evidenced based treatments such as CBT (cognitive behavior therapy), and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy). There is no standard prescription in therapy. The therapeutic relationship, as well as treatment, are collaborations between client and clinician that, when in harmony, will promote the positive change that you desire. Christi promotes the use of concrete goals to address stumbling blocks in our path, but ultimately, you are in charge of the direction of treatment.  An environment of empathy and support is always maintained; however, she will acknowledge when it seems you are triggering your own impediments. "

Christi helped me through a very tough time. I really connected with her and she was patient and kind. I have since moved on, but it was a positive experience.
