Treatment Approach

  • Dialectical Behavior (DBT)
  • EMDR
  • Emotionally Focused (EFT)
  • Hakomi Method
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Interpersonal
  • Psychodynamic
  • Relational Psychotherapy
  • Somatic
Approach Description: I think of my therapeutic style as incorporating several evidence-based approaches (talk and experiential) which includes engaging in dialogue that helps us to identify patterns in our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and how they relate to one another, developing insight which may reveal how our unconscious processes and past experiences are connected to our current issues, and noticing the impacts of role reenactment & scripts, attachment styles, patterns and power dynamics which can help us practice alternative ways of being within the therapeutic relationship. I also support individuals in direct skill building to improve emotional regulation, communication, boundary setting, distress tolerance, and social-emotional skills. Finally, the last part of my work is more “somatic” and “here-and-now” style of therapy that brings attention to how past and present experiences are stored in the body and affect our well-being. This includes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is an evidence-based therapy that emphasizes our unconscious emotions related to traumatic memories, while using Bilateral Stimulation (BLS) or eye movement to reduce the emotional impact of these memories. I am trained in EMDR and can incorporate it into sessions as needed. We will also be tracking subtle emotional signals which can help us access deeper levels of emotional awareness, so that we can bring subconscious emotions into consciousness. Lastly, I may help prompt emotional expression through things like trauma-informed mindfulness which is helpful when learning that it is safe to express our emotions and needs.

Christine Adams Practice Description
Do you find yourself entangled in self-blame or the weight of unresolved trauma? Do you feel yourself longing for more progress in therapy? Do you expect the worst even in moments of calm or stability? My approach focuses on trust-building and helping you safely enter a place of genuinely processing your emotions instead of avoiding, ruminating, or judging yourself about your emotions. Together we'll work towards harmony—aligning your thoughts and your emotions, releasing the grip of the past, and embracing the possibility of the present: That you are safe now, that you have power, that you are loved, and that you are enough.
