BARBARA CRISTY, LCSW-C, LICSW, Board Certified Diplomate
My approach to psychotherapy is to actively work with clients as partners. Together my clients and I work to reveal their deepest, most authentic selves. This includes helping to determine personal goals and aspirations. The therapeutic purpose is to free clients from debilitating behaviors so that they can live their best, most fulfilling lives. Drawing on my extensive clinical experience, I help clients identify and address the self-destructive issues that are causing problems. All of this is done in the context of the therapeutic relationship. The therapeutic goal is to rapidly identify and understand the patterns of behavior that cause problems so that clients will be able to relate to themselves and others in ways that are more satisfying.
