Hi, I'm Christy Shea

This is a safe, therapeutic environment. I offer a neurobiological, cognitive behavioral approach to therapy. Whether you are an individual adult seeking support or a couple struggling to get out of dysfunctional patterns, together, we can create change. Making the decision to come to therapy is a very personal one. In my office, you will discover what areas in your life are counter productive to the way you want to live. You will then be given the tools to change these patterns. Through this important process, you will heal, grow and encounter more joy!




Together, we will focus building a new, healthier relationship. This will be based on effective, respectful communication and healthy coping skills. Learning why your relationship gets stuck in certain fighting patterns is key to your freedom.  You will discover the patterns that do not serve your “GREATER WE” & the tools needed to change them.  If willing, you and your partner will learn how to humble your heart, forgive past hurts, and fall deeper in love once again no matter what stage your relationship is in. 


Premarital counseling sessions are designed to lay a strong foundation for your future together. We’ll offer you both the tools and insights needed to build a relationship filled with love, growth, and mutual respect.


Seeking therapy is a very personal choice. As hard as this choice can be, it is truly a gift to embark on a journey of healing. Come discover how to open your heart to love in the way you were created to love.  Love yourself and others in the way you really desire to. True vulnerability is strength. It requires a willingness to look inside, be honest and seek truth.  


Your child will be gently guided through their emotional and mental challenges. Our nurturing environment will help your child feel secure and understood as they embark on their unique path to growth and healing.

My goal is to offer a safe, therapeutic environment, which allows you the opportunity to ...
