Christina Heymoss – Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Christina Heymoss is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Michigan State University, and a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University in San Diego. Christina is passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families. She has extensive training in Bowen Family Systems Theory, and conceptualizes mental health issues from a systemic lens. Please feel free to ask her more about what this means. She also has extensive knowledge of CBT, DBT, and ACT, and incorporates concepts from these theories into her therapy. Christina primarily treats anxiety, depression, addiction, conflicts within relationships, and eating disorders. In the therapy room, she takes a client-centered approach. Clients have told her that they appreciate her ability to be compassionate yet challenging; a person that they can trust to give honest feedback with validation and a touch of humor. As a therapist, Christina’s position is not about giving you advice but observing how you live your life and how you make sense of the world. Since Christina is not ‘you,’ your partner, or your family, she can offer you a different way of thinking about things that may encourage you to try new avenues or respond differently to situations, making life hopefully the slightest bit better.
