Provisional Licensed Mental Health Practitioner
Christina Larsen is a Provisionally Licensed Mental Health Practitioner. Christina believes relationships are the cornerstone of the work of a counselor. Sitting and visiting with someone who really understands can give someone the confidence needed to open up and be vulnerable. She loves getting to know people, building trust with them, and empathizing with the situations they face. The relationship is the most important part of therapy, giving people the power to heal in ways they are not able to on their own. Her approach to counseling includes cognitive behavior therapy and solution focused therapy. She is planning to continue her growth as a professional by studying different intervention techniques that she can bring to her work with children and adults.
