Christina Carey, LCSW

I am a well-rounded, clinically, and spiritually minded therapist. I believe it is my purpose to help others reconnect with their authentic self and resolve past and present issues preventing them from being who they are meant to be. I would like to share these important concepts, and ideas with you in your journey to reaching your personal therapeutic goals. I firmly believe you are the expert of your experiences, and I can be a guide to help you see more objectively who you authentically are and gain more insight into who your true authentic self is.

I have experience in acute psychiatry, behavioral health evaluative services, parenting and child/family work (both inside the home and in a clinical office setting), pre-teen/teen issues, substance dependence group therapy, and individual adult and couple’s therapy. I have provided outpatient therapy services in various settings including clinical offices and hospitals.

I utilize Cognitive Emotional Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Image Rehearsal Therapy, Dialectical Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Solution Focused, and others that have been clinically proven to assist with depressive and anxiety disorders, as well as, anger issues, chronic pain, poor body image, low self-esteem, troubled sleep, managing relationship stress, coping with physical illness, trauma and more. I draw from neurobiology, somatic experiencing, mindfulness, and attachment theories to help in the understanding and reduction of uncomfortable symptoms. I also provide spiritual guidance upon request.
