San Diego, California Office
My name is Cindi Christiansen and I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist having received a Masters in Counseling and a Masters in Psychology. I have been in the mental health field for 17 years and in private practice for 8, working successfully with clients who suffer from ADD/ADHD, Addictions, specializing in pornography and sex addiction, Mood Disorders, Grief, OCD, and PTSD. I work with adolescents and young adults through the Mending the Armor program assisting this population with overcoming pornography and sex addiction. I work in the Crisis Houses in San Diego, working with the dually diagnosed population, along with working in a Christian clinic. I am on the Board of Directors for the San Diego Chapter of Women's Association for Addiction Treatment, as well as being on faculty at the University of Phoenix in the capacities of facilitator and faculty advisor. I treat Couples, Families, Adults, Adolescents and Children. My theoretical orientation is Cognitive Behavioral, believing that whatever we place in our Minds determines our Behavior and we are the Gatekeepers of Our Minds. I work extensively with relaxation techniques and, at times, introduce hypnosis into my sessions, which I am trained in. In this stressful world we live in, I enjoy watching my cleints gain confidence in their daily lives. I enjoy helping my cleints feel empowered in the midst of their struggles and challenges. My practice hours include Saturdays and evenings. My office is wheelchair accessible. I accept several insurances, including Aetna, Blue Cross, 1st Health, PHCS, TriWest, Blue Shield, GEHA, Cigna and others. I look forward to watching you confront, work through and overcome your struggles and challenges, as we become a TEAM in exploring and developing your path of growth.
