Hi, I'm Christine.
Born in Upsate NY, my early years were there. with a couple in the West Indies; however, most of my growing up was in the South, North Carolina specifically. After a couple years in other southern, my partner and I moved to Portland, OR in 2015. I guess that feels important to mention because those are my roots and bit of my current trajectory, and they keep showing up in random, surprising and connective ways with clients.
Why does that matter? It matters because client/therapist fit and relationship is the greatest predictor of therapeutic success for clients.* So I want you to know me, including a glance at my cultural roots, so you can find the therapist best fit to walk with you through this specific season or challenge of your life.
