Hello! My name is Dr. Christensen and I am a person-centered, humanistic-existential practitioner who has built my practice and clinical skill for the past decade integrating cognitive and behavioral techniques with a dynamic consideration for the context of an individual’s self-narration. I blend my professional experiences of working with various populations with my personal life experiences as a feminist-multicultural practitioner of color blending Eastern and Western philosophical thought and practices.
My practice is founded upon a dedication to mental wellness and I work with people committed to achieving life-congruence by bringing into balance their past histories, present needs and desires, and future goals. I believe therapeutic growth is developed through an authentic relationship between patient and practitioner to address both the surface symptoms present and the underlying stuck patterns which maintain incongruence. My therapy approach involves a collaborative process with the patient as an expert in their experiencing of the world joined with my expertise in modality and method.
