Christina Strain, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Southwick
Welcome, my name is Christina Strain. I have been practicing psychotherapy and facilitating interventions for over 15 years, working with hundreds of individuals and families affected by psychiatric disorders and addiction. I have extensive knowledge, certified training, and experience in the areas of addiction, intervention, family systems, mediation, and conflict resolution. My treatment approach, whether conducting an intervention or counseling, is to provide a safe, supportive, and empathetic environment, allowing my clients to effectively create rational goals and achieve healthy outcomes.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and interventions. By helping you learn how your own thoughts, beliefs and behaviors can increase or decrease feelings of anxiety or depression, I can help you begin to change your thought patterns and your behaviors in ways that can reduce or alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression and combat addiction.
My focus with you is to help you build on your strengths and overcome those limiting beliefs and habits which have interfered with your ability to experience greater satisfaction in your life. You will confidently navigate through life's challenges!
