About Christianne Porta

My passion is working with clients that feel stuck in their lives, whether it be in a relationship, as a parent, or as an individual. With couples, I focus on strengthening a couple's deeper understanding of each other by identifying their natural defenses that are hindering their communication and openness to connect. I enjoy working with parents, providing them with support and tools to help them navigate the often scary and confusing realm of parenting with confidence. I believe that at the core of our pain and fears there is always a valid reason why these feelings are there. Understanding how experiences from our past are connected to our difficulties today is essential to our healing. When we heal from our pains of the past we free ourselves and redefine our story.
