Our society tells us to not feel, to keep moving. Sometimes we need to stop to process the many emotions that come with life. My job is to provide that space, to encourage time to sort through and unpack our experiences and how they have affected us. I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help during these times. Meeting clients where they are and accompanying them on their therapeutic journey is a privilege. My belief in the human capacity and nature to heal is a quality I bring to every session.

Chrissie‘s typical fee is $85 for individual therapy (50 min); she can work on a flexible sliding scale if needed.
