CHRISTINE GALLAGHER, M.ED

I come to Perspectives Counseling with experience working with children, adolescents, LGBTQIA youth, and their families. I specialize in anxiety, depression, social skills, confidence building, and parent coaching.

I am passionate about working with women as they transition through their life stages, from adolescence, early adulthood, career, motherhood, empty nesting, and beyond. I empower women to find joy, celebrate accomplishments, and foster growth throughout their lifetime. 
 
To help foster growth, I utilize an integrative approach, incorporating techniques from Adlerian therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Informed Therapy (DBT). When working with children and adolescents, I combine talk therapy and play/art interventions to build rapport and promote growth creatively. Practicing from a holistic approach to therapy that considers the whole person, not just the presenting issue, I work with my clients to find a modality that best suits them.
 
Outside of my work, I am married with three college-age children. I enjoy travel, interior design, and photography.

Christine received her Master’s of Education in Professional Counseling at The University of West Georgia and completed her undergraduate work at Oglethorpe University. She is working towards her Licensed Associate Professional Counselor credential (LAPC) and is currently practicing under the supervision of Amy Robbins, LPC.
