Nina Livolsi Christensen, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena
As Sue Monk Kidd writes, "We do not find wholeness until we are willing to enter the broken, empty places in our lives and confront them honestly." I work with patients who are conditioned to deny, run from, smooth over or banish what causes them pain. In order to facilitate their growth toward deeper places, I help them pay attention to their pain and its causes -- which allows them to begin the process of healing.
So much pain stems from interpersonal relationships, from within the family, from love interests and/or coworkers. My approach for my patients is one of caring, understanding, collaboration and exploration.
My areas of specialization: Couples in distress. Divorce wars. Parenting issues. Addiction and its impact upon the family. Children and teens struggling in their environments. Issues of gender and sexuality. After-effects of PTSD and childhood trauma. Depression and bipolar disorder.
