“In the absence of reflection, history often repeats itself”

Dan Siegel.       

Hello, I’m Christine! I’m a wife, mama to three, a nurse, and Trauma Informed Storywork Counselor passionate about helping women explore their stories and live their healthiest life possible. 

Over a decade as a pediatric nurse, I saw how abuse, trauma, and destructive patterns pass from generation to generation. Often, I felt at a loss at how to address it to create lasting change. It was through storywork that I found a holistic answer that brought together neuroscience, theology, and psychology for profound healing. I experienced it myself and watched countless others break free from lies and stories that had kept them bound in harm for years. 

For the past four years, I pursued advanced training in trauma and sexual abuse through the Allender Center at The Seattle School of Psychology and Theology. I’ve witnessed the transformation power of storywork to bring healing to all areas of health for the individual and the power to change the trajectory of a family. 

I offer one-on-one care for women in a safe and empathic environment. Helping each client understand how formational stories are influencing the aspects of their current lives with a particular focus on parenting, marriage, and medical trauma.
