Among the modalities she uses are:

  •  EMDR

  • Brief therapy
  • Strengths-based
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Problem solving or solution-focused therapies
  • Meditation

  • Individuals
  • Military families and veterans
  • Seniors
  • Individuals [and their families] with chronic or rare physical disorders
  • Trauma

Life is not without its challenges and stressors. Getting stuck can blind one to possibilities. Challenges and stressors are necessary elements whereby each of us can grow. Challenges and stressors provide us with energy to use, if we use the energy but are not used by it.

Christine Pape, MAPC, LPC

therapist

Christine received her master’s from Ottawa University as well as doing some of her coursework through Phoenix Seminary. Christine also has her undergrad in Social Work from Arizona State University. 

Christine strongly believes that the therapeutic relationship is the most important part when working with clients.  It is Christine’s goal to create a safe space where you can come as you are and not feel any judgement, where you feel like you have a voice and you are being heard.  Christine is certain that we all have the capacity to change and grow and through that process coming to a place of experiencing freedom and healing. It is her privilege to walk along side you to encourage you towards growth as well as working with you to find effective ways for coping through life’s hardships. You are an individual made uniquely and she believes it is important to work together to find what is effective for you personally. It is extremely important to look at the whole person including mind, body and soul because when we exclude one we are missing an important piece in experiencing true and lasting freedom. 

A lot of Christine’s experience comes through her own personal journey and coming to a place of freedom when there seemed like all hope was lost. Because Christine has experienced suffering she believes that this has given her a unique perspective and allows her to empathize with her clients in ways that she may not be able to had she never experienced all she has. Christine’s professional experience includes working with pregnant women and counseling them through the process of either adoption or parenting, addiction counseling in an inpatient facility working with co-occurring disorders and working in a psychiatric inpatient hospital where she facilitated DBT groups. 

Christine works specifically doing individual counseling. The treatment modalities that she most often incorporates are CBT, DBT, and Christian based counseling if that is something that the client is interested in. The areas that Christine works with are Insomnia, addiction, self-worth and self-esteem issues, codependency, boundary issues, life transition, stress management, trauma, anxiety, depression, and OCD.
