Our Team

Christina Berben, LPC

Christina Berben, LPC

Christina has experience treating depression, anxiety, and trauma, and works with individuals who want support with women’s issues, relationship issues, career counseling, communication skills, critical thinking skills development, ethical nonmonogamy, financial goals, and habit change.

Christina specializes in working with young adults (high school students on their way to college, college students adjusting to life at university, young professionals entering the workforce/exploring career goals) and with women who are exploring, sometimes for the first time, their own wants and needs, independent from the wants and needs of others.

Christina understands that each person's journey is unique. She tailors her approach to meet the specific needs and goals of her clients. She utilizes evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Positive Psychology. Additionally, she integrates body-based treatments, neuroscience principles, philosophy, and Stoicism to honor the mind-body connection and explore the depths of human potential.

Through warmth and humor, Christina creates an environment in which clients feel understood, supported, and uplifted on their journey toward healing and self-discovery.
