    Christy Birgen, M.A., LPC, LMFT; Director


    My approach to therapy is grounded in the emotional human experience, with a Christian framework. My style combines the science of attachment theory, the power of emotion as a change agent, and integration of psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions. I view counseling as a safe place of acceptance and compassion where client and therapist work together to bring the client back to their personal place of hope and well-being.

    Cara Charanza, Graduate Student Counselor

    My approach to counseling is eclectic, pulling from my belief that each person is unique, created by God, highly valued, and can overcome hardships, pain, and despair. I explore how thoughts, beliefs, and emotions impact personal well-being and the health of relationships. To understand where we are going, we need to know how we arrived at this crossroads. Change begins through the therapeutic relationship built on trust, acceptance, honesty, and emotional connection.

    Our Values

    Faith

    I am a Christian and hold a biblical worldview. This shapes how I see human beings and relationships. Christian or other faith integration is at your leading and comfort level, as I believe that faith and spirituality are vital to healing and wellness.

    Acceptance

    My office is a place of safety and non-judgement where you will feel heard and understood. It is is essential for my clients to feel comfortable to share whatever is needed.  Healing can only take place in the presence of light.  

    Compassion

    As a seasoned human who has been blessed to be on this earth for over a half century, I have lived enough life to know the pain and suffering that is sometimes encountered. I will be present with you and you will know that you are not alone. Together we can help you find your way back to your place of well-being. 

    As you set aside time to do the hard work of counseling, I understand that things are shared in our time together that are personal and perhaps have never been spoken of before. Counseling is a sacred space. You can be assured that what you share is kept private and confidential.
