Finding Hope in the Journey
Christie Linnartz Counseling & Coaching
Hi, I'm Christie Linnartz, a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate under the supervision of Dr. Russ Bartee, LPC-S. I'm here to help when you're trying to make sense of life. It’s difficult to figure out what to do when the bottom drops out from under you! Life and relationships can be hard! These are valid thoughts and questions when your heart is breaking or when life isn’t going as you had thought or planned!
Being married for 29 years with two adult daughters, I understand the joys and challenges of marriage and family life. My experience in working with college students and young professionals for 26 years has given me insight and understanding into the unique struggles young women face. I especially enjoy helping young women navigate through their struggles and challenges of finding their way during these crucial years.
I have known the sorrow of disappointment and trauma. Through the skillful guidance of compassionate therapists, I found hope and healing. I want to walk with you and help you find your way. If you feel stuck, I am here to help. In receiving additional training that explores mind and body connections, I use techniques such as EMDR and Brainspotting to help individuals gain freedom and healing. As an Associate Partner Trauma Therapist through IITAP, I specialize in working with women experiencing betrayal trauma. I also enjoy helping engaged and married couples using the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment to experience a more satisfying relationship.
I provide individual and couples counseling with the intent to create a safe atmosphere where you can grow in self-awareness and develop healthy relationships. I desire to help individuals find emotional healing while integrating faith and psychology in the process with the goal of helping them experience authentic life transformation. I hope to extend kindness and compassion to each person who entrusts me to come alongside them on their healing journey.
