Christine is probably the best therapist I've ever had. She is very smart and perceptive. I feel like I'm a pretty introspective person, but she can usually get me talking or thinking about things I hadn't realized about myself. I always walk out feeling better.

Christine is wonderful. I have changed my life and behaviors in big and small ways thanks to her wise counsel. She empowers me to recognize my own patterns, see the gifts of my past and the possibility of my future. In previous therapy experiences I struggled with the feeling that I wasn’t making progress or getting anywhere, but I have never felt that way with Christine. I’ve recommended her to multiple friends and I’m truly grateful for her guidance!

My husband of 49 years died suddenly following surgery last August in the midst of the Pandemic. Neither of my two children live in St. Louis. They were concerned about me and thought it would be helpful for me to see a grief counselor. I reached out to my physician, and he recommended I contact Christine Lakey. I have been seeing Christine since last October weekly and now twice a month. My sessions were virtual up until May. Christine has guided me through each stage of the grief process. She is a lovely and very caring person and has been an excellent fit for me. I highly recommend Christine.

It is safe to say that my meetings with Christine changed the direction of my life in a very positive way. I came to her after decades of struggling and trying to deal with a particular issue on my own. Within a few months she helped me to find clarity and direction. She was supportive when I needed understanding and direct when I needed honesty. In summary, she helped me to find greater peace than I would have thought possible.

This morning, again - I woke up thankful for Mrs. Christine. She has been a savior with my mental health. After just a visit she pinpointed a few major issues that have been hovering over me for years. I am gaining all the tools I need to become the best version of myself. She is an incredible listener, extremely understanding about "life". I literally feel like she has saved my life because I am begging to enjoy life again and smile more. I can not recommend her enough.

Following a car accident, I had a lot of fear and anxiety around driving, it was almost debilitating. Christine got me in very quickly, and was able to diagnose me with acute stress disorder in my first session. She gave me practical advice and guidance that I found to have an immediate impact. Now, just a few months later, I am back to normal, with many thanks to Christine. Her office is calm and welcoming, and she provides patients the option of having sessions via phone in-between in person sessions. I couldn't recommend Christine more.

Christine has been amazing to work with. I've been attending sessions with Christine for a few years now and she's really helped me work through some of my more severe issues. I've come a long way from where I was and especially after separating from the military, and she has been super easy to work with. I highly recommend making an appointment with her. Thank you Christine!

It is very rare that you find a therapist that you feel a connection with from the very beginning. Most of the time, it takes several visits to form a relationship that you feel totally comfortable with, since you are talking about very personal issues. From the very first meeting with Christine, I felt entirely comfortable and able to speak about some of my deepest fears and concerns that have plagued me for quite a while. I feel totally relaxed and more than that, I feel that she truly understands my issues and offers possible solutions to overcome some of my fears. I am very pleased with my patient/therapist relationship with Christine, since I really feel that she has my best interests at heart. I would be remiss if I did not suggest her to my friends who are looking for a truly professional therapist.

Christine has been so helpful counseling me through various issues including being the child of an alcoholic mother and dealing with anxiety/panic attacks. I have met with a few other counselors when Christine was at capacity but never found a good fit elsewhere. I'm very grateful for her guidance and support.

Christine is an excellent therapist. She has helped me understand and navigate a multitude of situations and emotions. Christine is a wealth of knowledge and I know I can always count on her honest and helpful observations and guidance. I’ve seen numerous counselors through the years and Christine is by far the best. Without her help I would not be the thriving person I am today. If you are looking for a compassionate, insightful, and exceptional therapist, I highly recommend Christine Lakey.

Christine has been a wonderful resource for me as I go through many drastic life changes and battle with depression and anxiety. I have referred several friends or co-workers to her because I have received such a benefit from her services. She is kind, thoughtful, will listen and challenge you, and is not afraid to say what you need to hear. So thankful to have found her!

Out of many recommendations Mrs. Christine Lakey was the first to reach out to me. Her schedules are flexible with anyone’s schedule. She is always a call or text away even when sessions are not being performed. Her office is very welcoming, and her joyful relaxed spirit makes one feel comfortable. Her sessions are eye opening and heart warming. Mrs. Lakey makes you reflect on her understandings and not only talks to you but helps you accomplish you’re needs and wants.

Christine is not only a great listener but is also intuitive and creative. She made me comfortable immediately and quite often my therapy sessions felt like talking to a compassionate friend with superb competency and excellent advice. Christine has innate sense of when you need her to listen and when to offer guiding insight. I cannot day enough positive things about Christine and her practice, I recommend her any chance I get.

I was referred to Christine by a co worker of mine. Best decision I made was to go see her, I was at a point in my life where I let my daily stress and the people around me bring me down and it started to interfere with my daily life. Christine is a great listener and great at giving feed back. She helped me tremendously with how to look at certain situations from different perspectives and in return it helps me to find better solutions to the problems I may be having. She also recommended reading material in which I go to daily to help me get through certain situations. Christine is over all great and I would highly recommend her.

Christine creates a positive energy that you can feel as soon as you walk into her office. She is a fantastic counselor who can relate to all issues. She doesn't just "listen" she provides tools needed to work through the issues. She communicates on your level and gets to the root of the problem. She makes you feel comfortable working through issues and Christine really does care about making a difference. I highly recommend Christine.

Christine is an excellent therapist who helped me in ways in cannot describe. She is empathetic, and caring and helped me get through the hardest time of my life. She understands what her patients are going through and will do anything she can to improve their lives. She uses multiple methods, such as laughter, and exercises and book readings that help her patients understand what they are going through and how to improve themselves.
