Christine Schneider, Phd, LCSW
What I have found in my 20 years of experience in practicing, teaching and publishing in the field of therapy is that I learn something new from every client that I treat. The goal of therapy, in my opinion, is to provide enough emotional safety for clients to examine their lives and create a narrative that allows for growth and connection.
I have a doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy and am certified in EMDR and trained in schema therapy, Internal Family Systems and neurofeedback. I present nationally on the topics of trauma, eating disorders, and interpersonal neurobiology. I teach human development, developmental trauma, and couples and family theory.
My goal is to provide all of the tools necessary to allow clients to get out of rigid cycles or emotional states that keep them stuck in negative behaviors.
