More about me

Licensing: PhD, LPC, NCC
Years in Practice: 8

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with various experiences in working with children, adolescents, and adults in clinical, therapeutic, and volunteer capacities within the mental health field over the past 10 years. I have experience in working with individuals, groups and families that have been challenged with Anxiety, Coping Skills, Depression, Domestic/Sexual Abuse, Anger Management, Emotional Disturbance, Family Conflict, Grief, Identity Issues, Life Transitions, Parenting, Peer Relationships, Racial Identity, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Self-Harming, Stress, and Trauma.

My work engages a best practice and collaborative approach to client work, drawing from a variety of therapeutic techniques and approaches (ex: Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Existential, Family Systems, Interpersonal, Mindfulness-based (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative, Play Therapy, Music Therapy, Reality, Relational, Solution Focused Brief (SFBT), Strength-Based, and Trauma Focused) to best support in identifying the needs of the client and to assist them with developing effective coping skills to create alternative solutions. I also mix authenticity, humor, challenge, and trust in therapy to build strong working relationships with clients and facilitate safety in the therapeutic process.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Benton is wonderful. We communicate through messaging, but our primary sessions are over the phone. She always seems to understand what my overall point is even when I go off on tangents or find it hard to express myself clearly. She is patient and calming, and always offers great advice.

Christa is always friendly, and really works to be available when she is needed. She's helped identify problem areas in social interactions and my own cognitive processes, provided assistance in minimizing or solving such problems, and then checks back in to see how I'm doing. She really is great.
