Christina Unruh, MSW, LCSWA, is an intensively trained Dialectical Behavior Therapist (DBT) through the Linehan Institute, Behavioral Tech, LLC. She has an excellent clinical background in community mental health and substance abuse treatment settings in which she has worked extensively with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness. She utilizes:
- Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) from a Christ-centered perspective to address thought patterns and beliefs that keep you stuck, by narrowing the range of solutions and opportunities available to you as you deal with reality as it is.
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills that are consistent with Scripture to manage intense emotions and to change automatic response behaviors that make stressful situations worse.
Good therapy should accomplish much more than just the reduction of mental health symptoms. It should lead to relationships that work, a job that really matters to you, and hope for the future.
