Christina Ward, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Are you feeling anxious or depressed or struggling with the loss of a loved one?

Is a life transition or daily stress overwhelming you and leaving you feeling crippled and unsure how to tackle your problems?

Is it a challenge to communicate with your partner and you struggle with not feeling heard or understood? 

Beginning counseling for the first time or continuing counseling with someone new can be a challenging experience. My goal is to create a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental space for you to feel safe to be your genuine self.

I use a collaborative approach during therapy. Throughout our work together, I will balance support and insight in order to help process and understand your distress. I will also discuss tools that we will practice so you can apply them as you approach future obstacles.

I graduated with a Masters and Doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN.   I completed a pre-doctoral internship at the University of Kentucky and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina.

My areas of interest are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Obsessions and/or compulsions
  • Trauma
  • Relationship concerns
  • Life transitions
  • LGBTQ Topics
  • Mindfulness and Acceptance

In addition to clients who are private pay, I am in-network with the following insurance companies:

    • Blue Cross/Blue Shield (all plans)
    • Medicaid (all plans)
    • Medicare
