Therapy is managed from a one-session-at-a-time perspective, working with clients to discuss and process what is impacting their lives at the present moment. While operating from this perspective, Christy likes to work with client’s strengths to find the best fit for the client, while also respecting the client’s cultural background and needs. Working with Christy is based on the client needs, so therapy is personalized to the client, and can operate from multiple models in order to best meet the client where they are at and help them get to where they want to be.
In her free time, Christy likes art, theater, music, cooking, and reading. She has recently presented Workplace Effects on the Therapist at Life Changing Conversations in Houston, Texas in 2019
