Christine WeissChristine Weiss, MA

Limited Licensed Psychologist

"I believe that all people are uniquely gifted, uniquely challenged, relationally driven, worthy of respect, and deserving of peace and fulfillment. With these core beliefs in place, I seek to provide a safe environment, free of judgment and pressure, in which you and I can combine my professional tools with your personal strengths to identify unmet needs, develop critical skills, and build the resiliency necessary to live a fulfilling life. I believe it is a privilege to be a part of such restoration in the lives of children, adolescents and adults; therefore, I assure you that confidentiality and respect will be the foundations of our work together.”
