About Christy Gardner, LPC

Allowing all emotions to be expressed, without judgment, criticism or analysis and listening with heart best describe her approach to counseling. She honors her clients and their stories and focus on building a trusting relationship with them. Her main role is not that of the “expert,” but as a trained professional to assist the client. Her beliefs are similar to Carl Rogers and that is that people are resourceful, capable of self-understanding and self-direction, able to make constructive changes and to live effective and productive lives. This inspires Christy's person-centered approach to counseling.

A Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, trained to effectively help grievers recover from loss. The Grief Recovery Program was developed by someone who was going through loss himself, so the program is not just a theory, but also a method that has worked for millions of people continuously for the past 40 years. Being present to another person’s pain is not about taking away the pain. It’s about being a companion to the pain.
