Christine Woods, LCSW
I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Missouri, with over 20 years of experience working with adolescents and adults. I have a genuine heart and affinity for empowering others to utilize their own agency to explore and navigate life's experiences.
Social Work is not just a profession; it is a way of life for me. Realizing that life brings challenges, I am the owner and primary therapist of CROWNED Counseling. Regardless, if you are suffering from trauma, grief, life's stressors, relationship conflict, depression, or anxiety, I work with you at your point of need. My authentic and relatable approach defies the stoic therapist-client relationship interaction. I allow you to remain the author and expert of your life. And, if you want the next chapter of your life to be better than the last, let's change the narrative. I act as a guide as we work to expand your capacity and develop the tools you need to foster resilience.
What I Believe: I believe the therapist-client relationship is an important tool for reaching outcomes. I believe that transparency, warmth, reciprocal sharing, honesty and organic relatability is a vital part of creating a safe space for healing and growth.
The core of my work focuses on:
RELATIONSHIP, EMPOWERMENT, & RESILIENCE
Therapeutic Approaches: Using trauma-informed approaches, my therapeutic interventions include:
Culturally Sensitive Practice
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Solution Focused Therapy
