Christine received a BS in Elementary Education from Buffalo State College in 1999 and became a licensed teacher in North Carolina in 2003.  She taught kindergarten for 5 years and was a school counselor for 1 year, before completing her MA degree in Community Counseling at Lenior-Rhyne University in 2010.  Christine counseled in non-profit settings, as well as in behavioral healthcare as an out-patient therapist and intensive in-home team lead before coming to Cornerstone Counseling Center.

Christine believes that in counseling, people must be addressed in a holistic manner.  She uses an integrative counseling style, which has a strong foundation in Adlerian and cognitive behavioral therapies.  She believes that much of the personality is formed in the early years of childhood, and issues of the past affect how we deal with life in the present (Adlerian).  In addition, she is a firm believer that a person’s thinking influences his emotions and behavior (CBT).  Christine draws from other therapies and interventions, as well, based on each client’s individual needs and concerns, including person-centered, existential, art, and play therapies.

Christine is a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) with over 150 hours of training in play therapy and specializes in working with children and parents.   She also serves adolescents, families, and adults, providing counseling for a wide variety of life issues, including anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, trauma, women’s issues, codependency, parenting issues, grief and loss, child and adolescent behavior problems, and others.  Because of her chaplaincy training, Christine is also equipped to address a client’s spiritual needs.
