Welcome To Therapy!
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
I'm Christina Williams and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Rochester, NY however I have the ability to serve anyone in New York State.
I provide individual therapy, couples therapy and family therapy to children, teens and adults. I earned a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Tuskegee University and a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
My education coupled with my experience of working in a local child and adolescent outpatient clinic, family services clinic, NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) at the hospital and faith based organization that focuses on providing treatment to the underserved population has prepared me to successfully treat a range of symptoms.
I have experience in treating symptoms like sadness/depression, irritability, insomnia and increased sleeping, apprehension and self doubt, worrying, clingy behaviors, unexplained physical symptoms such as stomach aches and headaches, frequent crying, self-criticism, lack of boundaries, relationship difficulties and parent-child conflict. Additionally, I help children find appropriate ways to express their feelings, increase their independence, develop emotional maturity and reduce behavioral problems in the home and/or school environment.
As a former high performing student-athlete I bring a personal perspective and understanding of the mind-body connection and have experience in working with clients to help reduce physical symptoms often associated with stress and anxiety as well as helping them cope with the pressures of balancing their life on and off the field.
My passion is providing quality mental healthcare to help you navigate life's challenges effectively.
If you are unsure where to start or have any questions give me a call or send an email to explore your needs and take the first steps towards becoming a better you.
