Don’t let life pass you by.
Christy’s therapeutic approach involves developing an active, dynamic and assertive partnership which addresses the unique issues as they present for each individual client. She believes it is an absolute necessity to provide active goal directed guidance based on each individual client’s unique need.
Christy believes daily availability is necessary in the therapeutic relationship while dealing with all of life’s ups and downs. Therapeutic treatment is provided NOT ONLY during the hourly session/office visit.
“All too often I will hear reports from current clients who have been disappointed or let down by past therapists for being passive and non-directive, leaving them with little or no therapeutic gain. It is my absolute goal to assist each client in the development of an effective and collaborative treatment plan, working to provide greater clarity and understanding about whatever particular situation that may bring them to therapy. Enhanced strategies, coping mechanisms and tools are developed to assist the client through these situations as they occur.”

Christy has been an integral part in my life whether it was a rough time or a good time. She is great because she does not take sides. She has given me the tools necessary to make the best decisions for my life. I don't know what I would do without her. I have recommended her to everyone I know and they love her just as much as I do. Everyone should go and see her because she is amazing!
Through working with Christy, I have learned many things, one is that I've gained complete freedom from having to be in a relationship with someone to be happy. I am free from many beliefs and behaviors that were weighing me down. Christy is so dedicated, and works so hard to use all of her experience and knowledge until you are the best person you can be.
I do not think my daughter, or our family, could have survived the nightmare of opiate addiction masking bipolar mood disorder, without Christy Hansen. She has been with us each step of the way, supporting our daughter in overcoming addiction to opiates, assisting us in finding compassionate psychiatrists, monitoring medications and always providing practical sound strategies so our daughter can live her best life and we can provide the family support needed. We are blessed to have Christy in our life.
