Christy Stinton

20 years of experience

I am a licensed counselor, with 20 years of experience. I have a warm and interactive style. I believe that real change occurs in a safe and accepting counseling environment. My approach is to combine cognitive-behavioral, developmental and person centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, I will explain confidentiality and informed consent. I will ask about what prompted reaching out and discuss therapeutic goals. I will ask about the history of the struggle, and above all listen empathetically and without judgement.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am warm, empathetic, and have years of experience with a variety of issues in a number of different settings.

About Christy Stinton



My treatment methods

Christian Counseling

I integrate spiritual beliefs and Biblical knowledge with mental health treatment.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have used CBT for years in identifying cognitive distortions, reframing negative and anxious thoughts to promote new thought and behavior patterns.


I use EMDR to treat trauma and to help bridge the gap between logical beliefs and feelings.


I use psychoeducation to give clients tools and understanding of theories as well as homework to look over.

Compassion Focused

I believe that compassion is the prerequisite for a therapeutic relationship and change to occur.
