Christine Dowling, LISW-CP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Piedmont
A guiding principle in working with any client is to see that person as a unique individual with strengths and potential far greater than the problem that has brought them to my door. My job is to tap into those strengths, to help you see your potential, and to support you in making the change you are seeking to achieve. I incorporate a holistic approach that looks at a client from a whole person, mind-body perspective, focusing on identifying relational, lifestyle, or cognitive changes that may be beneficial to reaching your identified goals.
I work with older adolescents, couples, families, and individual adults. I have a generalist practice with experience treating stress and anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, chronic illness and pain management, relationship issues, self-identity, as well as problems related to major life transitions (graduation, career change, parenthood, divorce and retirement.
I have completed a basic certification course in Aromatherapy for Health Professionals and integrate aromatherapy into my practice. I have completed a 200-hour, Yoga Alliance certified, teacher training course. For clients who are seeking more than traditional talk therapy methods, gentle yoga exercises, along with education on aromatherapy applications are optional treatment approaches available.
