Christy Ardis, LCSW

Hi I am Christy Ardis!

Hello! My name is Christy Ardis and I am an LCSW. I am Proud in my identity as a Social Worker, I have worked in community settings such as behavioral health clinics, hospitals, substance abuse treatment, and community non-profits before transitioning to providing individual counseling.

I’ve had personal and professional experiences that hopefully allow me to provide judgment free and inclusive counseling. I have a special interest in working with adolescents, parents, those that are grieving, or experiencing other major life transitions.

What is My approach to therapy?

With deep roots in community Social Work; I have a strong foundation in considering a person in their environment. We’ll determine your goals; then back-up, look at the big picture and history. Doing this will allow us to address needs holistically. Depending on your current goals and functioning; you’re most likely to receive a mix of narrative, psychodynamic, DBT, solution focused, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Acceptance & Commitment (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them.

Cognitive Behavioral

Help understand negative thoughts and behavior patterns with our unique therapy approach.

Solution Focused Brief

Take the time to analyze problems, pathology and past life events in order to find solutions for the present.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I hope clients walk away from their sessions feeling a lack of judgment; and confidence that the emotional wounds they’re harboring can be healed.

Who I Specialize In Serving?

Adolescents and Adults.
