What Our Patients Say

I have been to a couple of therapists trying to find the right fit and Dr. Christian is absolutely amazing. I would And do refer her to anyone that I meet that is looking for a therapist. She has the right approach and allows her clients to lead the therapeutic sessions. She truly has a gift and knows exactly how to approach people and meet them where they are. I am so thrilled to be a client of hers.
