Hi, I'm Christine
Thanks for wanting to learn more about me.
I provide therapy for individuals, groups and couples. I also have an ongoing women's group.
My specialty is Bioenergetic Psychotherapy. Bioenergetics is a form of psychodynamic psychotherapy that integrates work with body and mind to help people resolve their emotional problems and live a more vital, vibrant life.
More than half of communication is expressed through body language, and that’s a language I have been trained to speak. My awareness of my clients’ non-verbal cues helps me create a safe and comfortable space that will nurture our work together. Therapy sessions combine traditional talk therapy with therapist-led breathing and movement exercises designed to help the client understand how their problems manifest in their body and how releasing these patterns can begin to help resolve their emotional problems.
