I see therapy as a partnership and personal growth as only influenced, not directed, by the therapeutic process. I'm grounded in family systems theory in which all aspects of one's life affects it: spirituality, social life, family, friends, partners...

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.

I have had an extremely positive experience with Christine and she has helped me immensely. I always feel heard and feel that she "gets" me. She has given me many tools to manage my life and I consider her very knowledgeable in her field. Don't know what I would have done without her. Have recommended friends to her and will continue to do so.

Non-judgemental. What every therapist needs to be. You feel listened to and not rushed.

I bounced around from provider to provider because I was not satisfied with the results I was getting. Once I found Christine, I have not gone anywhere else. She’s effective and is exactly what I was wanting to get out of my therapy. I highly recommend her.

I found Christine by a recommendation from one of my social worker friends. So pleased with Christine for helping me work through the death of my sister with pancreatic cancer and ALL her family dysfunction. She listened compassionately and guided me with her input. She confirmed to me that I was not the "bad guy" and gave me the skills to interact with them while staying mentally healthy. Thank you Christine.

I have been seeing Christine for almost two years now and she is an exceptional therapist and human being. I can honestly say she has changed my life for the better and has helped me to help myself change my life. I would not be where I am today without her. Talking to her is like talking to a close friend or confidant, I love her humor and sarcasm and at the same time her professionalism and feedback.

I wish I had taken better notice of the "unprofessional and very opinionated" shamed reviews rather than the cluster of positive ones from late last year/early this year. That's exactly how I felt leaving this therapist's office. I got a barrage of advice from someone who didn't take the time to understand me. I got interrupted a lot and no matter how many times I explained what I needed, she kept trying to tell me to do things I'd already tried. Still haven't shaken off this experience.

I've been to several therapists over the years, but no one has come close to providing the level of care I have received from Christine. She is extremely professional, kind, funny, and smart. I would highly recommend her. Christine has literally saved my life and I thank God for every day.

I have been seeing Christine since Dec 2017 and sought her for help in navigating my recovery from a bilateral mastectomy w/reconstruction. My surgeon recommended her as a fellow cancer survivor and she has helped me process a lot as I heal and accept the "new me" both physically and mentally. My family also has a strong history with alcoholism and damaging relationships, all of which Christine has helped me disengage from. Christine is empowering and encouraging - I would highly recommend her!

I’ve been going to Christine for about 5 months now and I am nothing but satisfied with her. I was nervous to try counseling for the first time but after just our first session I knew that Christine was great at her job. She also offers hot tea to her clients and has a very cozy office! :)

Christine has been so great to work with. Her approach is empathetic, yet direct and honest. In just a short amount of time that I have been working with Christine, I have already accomplished so much and I am seeing the benefits in every day life. Every time I leave her office, I feel better, especially knowing that the past hour has been truly productive in helping me move forward in life. I highly recommend Christine!

I have seen a few counselors over the last three years for my anxiety, and Christine is the best counselor I’ve had by far. She is extremely knowledgeable about anxiety disorders, and I am 100% confident that I will overcome my anxiety due to the counseling I have received from Christine. I would recommend her to anyone.

I cannot say enough about the impact working with Christine has had on my life. More space has been made for balance, independence, and love (for myself and others), through the personal progress facilitated through her genuine care and expertise.

Christine helps me more than I ever thought imaginable. She not only listens and gets to know me as a person but also validates my feelings. She is wonderful at giving me suggestions to try when I feel ready. Christine has been a godsend for me during one of the most difficult times in my life. We have talked about things that I never discussed with anyone before. I have complete confidence in her. Christine has made me a priority at times. Very intelligent and caring.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Christine. She was incredibly easy to talk to and was always open to whatever I told her. I never felt judged or uncomfortable sharing the details of my life with her. She also consistently offered thoughtful and realistic advice and strategies for whatever major problems I was facing. I am definitely satisfied with the time I spent with her and I would undoubtedly recommend her services to anyone.

Very competent and experienced therapist with a wide variety of expertise. Attends seminars and conferences to keep abreast of latest information regarding various aspects of human behavior. Very courteous, compassionate and sincere. I don't believe one could find a better therapist in the greater St. Louis area.
