12 years of experience

Hello! My name is Christien Harden, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (NC and VA), Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist (NC) and Certified Clinical Supervisor (NC). While attending graduate school, my focuses were the LGBT community, Severe and Persistent Mental Illness, and Substance Use Disorders. At present, I provide all services virtually. Overall, I want to talk about the matters that matter to you.

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

During our first session, we will complete a thorough initial assessment in order to better understand you, the individual. We will begin to unpack the matters that that have brought you to therapy and lay out a roadmap for your individual recovery. Throughout our time together, you will learn and practice a number of strategies to work through the matters that matter to you.

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

Life isn't always easy but, it should not always be a struggle. It is my wish to assist those struggling with mental health and substance use issues by providing an experienced, caring atmosphere to grow and heal.
