Christina is a warm, empathic and experienced psychologist who has worked in part-time private practice since 2004.
She has a wide range of experience including working within the criminal justice system, in staff support and Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). She counsels using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which research has shown has demonstrated efficacy in treating a wide variety of disorders and problems. Christina has presented papers and posters at 10 professional conferences on a variety of issues including cannabis and mental health, spiritually modified CBT and victims in the criminal justice system.
Areas of special interest and experience include:
Christian Spiritually Modified CBT
- cannabis abuse
- alcohol abuse
- mental health disorders
- work/life balance
- stress management
- self esteem issues
Research has demonstrated that incorporating the clients spiritual beliefs and faith in therapy can enhance outcomes. Christina is alway happy to include the spiritual dimension in therapy for clients who wish to do so. While many Christians fear a conflict between psychology and their faith, CBT can be easily modified from a Christian or Jewish perspective to use the power and encouragement of scripture as part of therapy. Christina can attest to the power of using scripture as an anchor when confronting difficult situations and in challenging anxiety.
