Prior to counseling individuals, couples, and families, Christina worked in our community for over 12 years assisting individuals and families in crisis, victims of domestic violence, victims of rape/sexual assault, and youth-at-risk. Christina had the profound privilege of working with patients and families in hospice care for several years prior to private practice counseling and ultimately joining KP Counseling. Christina earned her Doctorate in Clinical Social Work at Aurora University in Aurora, IL, and she has been an adjunct professor teaching both bachelor’s and master’s level coursework in social work for over 8 years.
Christina and her husband will celebrate 19 years of marriage this year, and they are very busy with their four children who are all involved in multiple sports and activities. Beyond her faith, her family, her friends and her work, Christina enjoys reading, writing, volunteering and spending time outdoors working in her yard. She and her husband are focused on never missing the value of a single moment, and she is dedicated to working as a conduit in others’ lives to promote understanding and healing. Christina identifies most with cognitive/behavioral therapy traditionally, but operates from several modalities working with couples and marital therapy, memory work, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD or survivors of trauma or childhood trauma and more. She is also a LCSW in both IL and WI.
