Christina has been in the counseling field for approximately eighteen years and is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Illinois and Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Georgia with a pending License (LMHC) in the State of Indiana. She has a Master's degree in counseling. Her clinical focus is on child, adolescent, and adult populations with mental health and substance abuse issues. She has been involved in familial research using the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) method with parenting at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana and Chicago. Her therapeutic approach is multi faceted and person centered. She attributes this to her training in Multi Systemic Therapy at the Medical University of South Carolina where she was taught the importance of the community and ecology of the child in providing effective treatment. Her teachers and mentors over the years have had a profound effect on her as a clinician. Dr. Eva Dreikurs and Dr. Russell Barkley have been imperative in helping Christina develop her approach to treating children, adults, and families. Christina studied at the University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana, Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, Webster University in Charleston, SC, and Capella University at the Bachelor, Masters, and PhD level. She feels fortunate to be a part of VCOP and looks forward to the next chapter in her clinical experience.
