Christine Monroe, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (100806)

Program Director

MS, Clinical Psychology, Vanguard University

Sometimes it helps to talk about life's struggles and pain with someone who listens and understands. Sometimes we have become distant from the people most important to us and need help repairing relationships. Sometimes the people we needed to care for us have hurt us and we need help healing. Sometimes we have done things we regret and need help moving forward. Everyone desires to be known and accepted, but sometimes things happen to cause us to withdraw and give up on connecting with others. I would like to help you find healing, hope, and harmony in your life.


I offer clients an opportunity to be heard, safety to express themselves, support to explore possibilities for growth, tools for coping with problems, and hope for enjoying a fuller life. I have worked with people helping them overcome childhood abuse, sexual abuse, couples issues, depression, addiction, trauma, and relational difficulties.

I am a Certified EMDR therapist and trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, sand tray therapy, and play therapy.
