Christina Curtis, LMFT, Clinical Director
She holds an MA in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco and an MFA in Creative Writing/Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College. In the last eight years, Christina has deepened her psycho-therapeutic work with individuals, as well as short term (Prepare/Enrich Premarital Counseling) and long term work with couples of all backgrounds.
Trained in Family Systems theory, and with a grounding in trans-personal, somatic and narrative perspectives, Christina is a couples therapist who respects the sacredness of individual identity and autonomy and an individual therapist with a deep understanding of couples’ relationships and how they impact personal development.
Christina sees her early crisis training as having bestowed the gifts of clear boundaries and a gut-level instinct about what’s most essential for clients.
Her background as a poet and writer have enhanced her ability to use symbol, metaphor, and story to help clients make meaning of their lives. Her more recent developing passion for work with premarital couples has been one of the most compelling periods of her long career.
