Christina O. Rose, LPC
WAIT LIST DURING PANDEMIC - TELETHERAPY I believe everyone can feel whole and fully alive by connecting to the inner guidance within each of us. I engage the mind, body, and spirit in the therapy process as a way to aliveness and wellness. I offer an eclectic approach to therapy, and use Somatic Experiencing, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Repossessing (EMDR) when appropriate to move past blocks. I bring professional and life experience, integrity and kindness to the therapeutic relationship. Within that relationship, I wholeheartedly maintain a space of hopeful possibility for my clients while acknowledging the truth of their lived experience. Because I believe mind, body, emotions, and spirit are inseparable I prefer to work collaboratively with expert practitioners of healing disciplines like massage, acupuncture, naturopathy, and chiropractic. I believe past trauma is literally embodied, and therapy and body-centered healing arts combine synergistically to identify, explore, and resolve past experiences that block wellness.
Education & Experience
I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in History and a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology, both from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. My undergraduate work focused on minority history and cultures, including Women in the United States. My Master’s Degree coursework included: Counseling Children, Adolescents and Adults, Diagnosing and Treating Children, Adolescents and Adults, and Working with Sexual Minorities. In my post graduate training I have focused on early childhood attachment, trauma recovery, depression, psychoanalytic theory, interpersonal neurobiology, emotion focused therapy, somatic experiencing, and women’s empowerment. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization and Repossessing,) a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP,) and a SoulCollage® Facilitator.
