Hi! I'm Christa, I'm an adoption-competent, trauma-informed therapist and registered yoga teacher.
Clinical Social Worker in Towson, MD
I have completed the Center for Adoption Support and Education's accredited training in Adoption Competency program (TAC) and have supported adoptees of all ages and their families working on identity, grief and loss, and life transitions. In my work, I often support adoptees and their families going through the search and reunion process, processing trauma, and understanding neurodivergence.
I started my career working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Later, working with children and teens in foster care who had experienced abuse and developmental trauma. I have been through multiple trainings focused on healing trauma (SERVE-brain model, ARC trauma treatment, TF-CBT, etc.) and am trained in somatic and attachment focused EMDR.
Christa has specialized training to work with neurodiversity, and working toward an ADHD certification.
I have specialized training to work with neurodiversity and am an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider. This allows me to help parents and clients better understand their needs and how needs may present at school, work, or with friends.
