Christi Dean, LMFT
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Certified Breakthrough Parenting Instructor
Welcome. I am glad you found me and look forward to speaking with you about how therapy can be helpful for you.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (Lic: #85479). I hold a Master's degree in Psychology and a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Before becoming a therapist, I worked in a corporate business environment for ten years.
I work with adults of all ages to help them navigate difficult circumstances, overcome challenges, strengthen relationships, change unhelpful patterns, and achieve healing and growth through all stages of life. I can help you identify and address the underlying factors that may be getting in the way of the outcomes you imagine.
I came to this work through my own parenting journey, so I have a special interest in the parent-child relationship, in any of it's various forms and stages. There is so much wrapped up in our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about parenting that can complicate our ability to lead our children intentionally and effectively. For example, how we were parented, societal and cultural messages about child-rearing, or the meaning we make out of our children's behavior all inform how we respond and react to our kids at any given moment. Helping parents navigate these issues and become more intentional, rather than reactive, in their parenting is my favorite kind of work to do.
I offer a gentle, supportive, affirming, inclusive, and non-judgmental approach to therapy. I am a proud ally for the LGBTQ community. I believe that all humans have the capacity for healing, growth, and change. Together, we will establish goals and create a collaborative plan for achieving the results you desire. Let's talk.
