OUR THERAPISTS

Christine Craigin, MS, LMFT

Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Indiana University, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, State of Indiana

 

Specialties: pre-marital, marital and divorce counseling, adolescent acting-out behaviors, individual and family therapy for depression and anxiety

I am trained and experienced in helping people improve relationships in their lives. Whether it be a relationship with yourself, marriage, long term relationship, parent-child, or an adolescent stage; many people feel lonely, frustrated, at a loss, or confused about what to do next. It is important to find the balance and appropriate boundaries in your life that allow you to function at the highest level possible: that is where therapy can be a valuable tool to help sort through the past or break through to a more hopeful future.

 I have worked with individuals and families struggling with anxiety and depression. I have also worked with parents who are struggling with oppositional and defiant behaviors from children and with separation anxiety. I feel the dynamic of family therapy is very powerful and highly influential when used effectively and appropriately in a safe and healthy setting.

Master of Science in Counseling Psychology, Purdue University

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, State of Indiana

Specialties: adults, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder

 

I have extensive experience providing individual and group therapy for adults in a variety of settings. I particularly enjoy working with clients who may feel alienated from conventional support systems due to such things as residential placement history, difficult family history, sexual orientation, foster care history, alternative lifestyle choices and other personal issues. I am strongly committed to accepting people where they are while helping them to decide for themselves what changes they might want to make in their lives. My therapy integrates a variety of approaches including cognitive/behavioral interventions, identifying relationship patterns, exploring impacts of early childhood issues, and teaching specific skills related to mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation. I am trained in the use of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques and recent experience working in a residential treatment facility that used DBT as its primary framework for treating adolescent clients. I have a strong commitment to helping individuals who are making difficult transitions in their life without reliable support systems.

Alyssa Broshar, MAT, NCC, LMHCA

 

Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology: Art Therapy, Adler University, National Certified Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, State of Indiana

 

Populations: adults, children and adolescents

Specialties: children and adolescents, behavior and stress management, autism, developmental disorders, anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma-informed care, grief and loss

I believe it is important to meet the client where he/she is, to develop a strong therapeutic relationship. I strive to provide a warm and nurturing environment to support and empower my clients. I have experience providing individual, family and group therapy to children and adolescents. I have experience providing therapy to individuals with autism and other developmental disorders. I have helped many families by providing interventions and techniques effective in addressing needs of the family member. My background is in art therapy, and I often utilize art therapy techniques with my clients: however, it is not a requirement to include art in the sessions if the client is not comfortable. I do believe visual expression can give a voice to the individual that he/she may not be able to communicate directly. With art therapy, I believe the process of art making is often more important than the final product and that the use can foster healing within the individual and is an alternative to traditional talk therapy. Aside from utilizing art therapy techniques with clients, I use an integrative approach while adapting to the unique needs of the client to help overcome obstacles and to facilitate change.
