Connection and caring in a safe place

Christy Birgen, M.A.
Licensed Professional Counselor 
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist-Associate 

I help distressed couples and individuals find comfort, security, and peace in the relationship bond with their partner or self.

All therapy is based on a collaborative relationship in a place of acceptance

Couples Counseling

Couples who are experiencing relational distress feel hurt, disconnected, or stuck. Does it seem like you have been trying to work through issues, only to end up in an argument? I understand that what you want most is to be understood and feel connected to your partner again.

Christian Counseling

Spirituality has a significant impact on our mental well-being and can be an integral part of change. As a Christian, my understanding of that change can only be found in the Triune God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I would love to integrate therapy with a Christian worldview if that is important to you.

Individual Counseling

Sometimes life becomes hard and you find yourself in a place that does not feel right. It may feel like anxiety, depression, or relationship issues. It may seem like you're not sure how you got there or how you are feeling may be tied to where you find yourself in life. I would love to partner with you as you find your way back to better place.

Pre-marital Counseling

Congratulations on your engagement - what an exciting season you are in! Amidst the planning of your wedding day, it is just as important to set aside intentional time to ensure you and your fiancée have the best foundation to build your life upon once you say "I do".

My Approach

My approach to therapy is grounded in the emotional human experience, with a Christian framework. My style combines the science of attachment theory, the power of emotion as a change agent, and integration of psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions. I view counseling as a safe place of acceptance and compassion where client and therapist work together to bring the client back to their personal place of hope and well-being.
