Specializing in children
with trauma

In-person & Virtual

It's ok to not be ok.

As moms, we want nothing more than to keep our children safe and raise them to be fulfilled and happy. When unexpected trauma occurs, it upsets the life we had envisioned for them, bringing fear, uncertainty, and other big emotions that no child should have to handle – and no parent could be prepared to handle.

We can’t change what happened, but we can walk with you and your child to make sure you aren’t navigating the process alone.


What Do You Struggle With?

As A Parent

  • Challenges related to childbirth and new parenthood
  • Feeling powerless in your situation
  • Frustration at the high expectation placed on mothers
  • Feeling like you can't balance everything
  • Perfectionism and feelings of inadequacy
  • The loss of your sense of self

As A Child

  • The effects of abuse or neglect
  • Violence in the home or at school
  • Dealing with grief and loss

Our Approach

How Our Therapy Works

We Get To Know You

We want to know how we can best support you. At the first appointment, we meet with you and your child separately or together to understand your situation, challenges and goals.

We Create A Plan

We determine the best therapy to use as a course of treatment, and equip you and your child with the tools you need to make progress outside of the therapy office.

We Support You

We keep communication open while protecting confidentiality so your child can feel safe to express themselves, while you have the comfort of knowing what progress is being made.

Hi, I'm Christine

I am a mom of two and a therapist with a desire to help families get through some of the toughest experiences they could face.

If you have been struggling with a difficult life situation, managing your role as a parent or helping your child through a traumatic experience, I understand how lost you can feel. I made it my mission to help people get the healing they need – kids and adults alike – to let their best self shine.

At Spark All Wellness, our experienced therapists provide the compassion, tools and support you need to move past the experiences that are keeping you stuck and get back to living fully.

We believe you can heal.
