CHRISTIE SPAHR MA, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

My name is Christie Carol Spahr, I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, a Mindbodyologist and Holistic Psychotherapist.  I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I graduated from the University of Oregon with a masters degree in psychology.

I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety and depression.  I work mainly with individuals, couples, families, and also facilitate group therapy.  I have counseled clients from all over the globe, from different cultures, creeds, races and ethnic groups, so I am culturally competent and sensitive.   I have over 20 years of experience in “The Healing Arts”, holistic therapies and Integrative Mental Health. For me, all of these are just ancient wisdom making a comeback in our modern world.  I must admit, I am thrilled to be part of its return to our human consciousness.

I have been an athlete my entire life, so the mind-body connection has become second nature to me.  I find that this has been beneficial in guiding my clients into getting in touch with their own mind-body connections.  Furthermore, distance running has taught me “mind over matter”, which helped me to overcome my own inner battles with self-doubt and anxiety, and I share these “insights” with my clients dealing with similar issues.  I always like to tell my clients “Things get real around the 25th mile of a marathon”.  It is the 25th mile that actually helped me to truly understand the inextricable power of the mind, body and spirit connection, and most importantly the human will!

In applying the mind-body connection, I use a plethora holistic and integrative healing modalities, customized to fit each of my client’s unique personalities and needs.  In addition to mind-body approaches, I am also able to integrate conventional evidenced based therapies such as ACT, CBT, DBT, and Solution Focused modalities, all of which I tailor to my clients on a case-by-case basis, according to their needs. As I embrace the entire human family and all of its diversity, I have an affinity for culturally sensitive therapies such as Humanistic approaches influenced by Native American-Indigenous cultures, Narrative Therapy from Australia, Logotherapy-Existential Therapy by Viktor Frankl, and Person-Centered Therapy by Carl Rogers.

Simply put, I love what I do.  It is my life’s calling to be a therapist, and I feel honored to have the opportunity to serve my clients.   I have been truly amazed at the brilliance and humility of each and every one of my clients throughout the years.  I feel grateful that they have humbly allowed me to be part of their healing journeys, life stories and experiences.  I hope to be part of yours.
