I have been in the counseling field for 20 years. I enjoy helping people to get the things that they want out of their lives. My expertise has been in substance use but has also worked with depression, anxiety, trauma, and many other areas of concern. I find my therapeutic approach most effective with teens, young adults, and middle-aged individuals.
I have been trained in various forms of counseling techniques (ie: CBT, MET, MI), but find that in helping people, there is no “one size fits all” approach. I feel that my calling in life is to help others and it is what I have dedicated my life to. I find that just meeting people where they are and letting them lead the way is the best approach to facilitate change.
I have lived in Florida since 1984 and currently reside in Spring Hill. I have been married for 20 years and have 2 grown children. I am an animal lover and have 3 dogs, 1 grand dog and a grand hamster. I love to spend time with family and friends, go shopping, and try new restaurants.
A note from Amanda (practice owner): Christine and I have known each other for more than 15 years, we have worked alongside each other in the community as well as prayed together as friends. I know her heart and skills and am pleased to have her serving on the Mixed Nuts team.
