She is currently serving as a private practitioner in Beaumont, Texas, and works with a broad spectrum of clients.

Christy also works with families who are in transition as a result of separation or divorce. She has worked within the court system as a Court Appointed Therapist and Parent Facilitator.

With compassion and understanding, she works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. Her therapeutic philosophy is to provide support and practical feedback in order to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.
