Christine Vacin, LCSW, CPT

Christine is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who utilizes a psychodynamic and strength-based approach to explore and work through problems concerning self-esteem, anxiety, codependency, addiction, trauma, grief, adjustment difficulties, life transitions, adjustments to motherhood, and couples/relationship dynamics. She enjoys helping clients identify and develop successful tools to help clients overcome difficult life challenges and gain a sense of empowerment.  She is also fully trained in EMDR therapy (evidence-based therapy used to help with the symptoms of PTSD and unresolved emotions and trauma).  With a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certification in personal training, she decided to introduce physical activity when appropriate, be it walking, running, or any other physical movement into her clinical work to process issues stored within the body and improve mind-body connection. She graduated from Loyola University Chicago with an MSW and a specialization in children and families. 

MISSION:
