Christine Colburn received a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University – Phoenix and recently opened her own private practice in the East valley. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) specifically with children. In November 2019, Christine was honored with being accepted into the International Society of Female Professionals (ISFM).
Christine is a strong advocate for all her clients; ensuring everyone feels heard and validated. She also has a direct, straight forward approach when speaking to client’s and or their families, “ It’s important the guardian’s, client’s, and/or families are provided with the facts so that they can in turn make an educated decision that need to made at that time .” Christine has a way of delivering tough subject matters in a kind and caring way as well so that the clients and/or family understand the information, “I cannot expect for my client to do well if someone in the immediate family is not doing well.” She understands life can be tough, and it does not feel fair at times. However, Christine also believes we all have the ability and tools needed to overcome life’s obstacles; however, we all have not been taught to use those tools yet. Therapy is not meant to be a lifelong process in most cases. “Therapy is meant to be a steppingstone in life where we can learn to use the tools, we already have so each individual can better handle life’s challenges.”
Christine’s professional interests focus on children with trauma, and she has been trained as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) through the Arizona Trauma Institute.
