Registered Counselling Therapist
My name is Christina Rodrigue (she/her), and I am a registered counselling therapist (candidate) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists, and I provide client-centred counselling services across the life span. However, I have a particular fondness for working with adolescents and children, which comes from my experience as a child and youth care worker and the obstacles I faced during this pivotal time in life.
I am passionate about working collaboratively, as I believe the essence of therapy is centred around the therapeutic relationship. One way I do this is by actively acknowledging that each of my clients is unique in an attempt to create a warm and inviting space for you to show up as you are.
Over the past ten years, before becoming a therapist, I have enjoyed working and in many different capacities. I have supported women, men, youth, children, families, and members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community who have faced adversity, oppression, substance use, suicide ideation/thoughts, mental health, disabilities, and trauma.
My areas of interest include substance use, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts/ideation, and grief. Additionally, from a therapeutic perspective, I can pull from several different frameworks and have training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Play Therapy.
In my free time, when I am not supporting others, I love to hang out with my partner, our two cats and our beautiful, loving rescue dog. My favourite season is winter, and as a former figure skater and teacher, I still find stillness and a sense of calming within the cold air. However, I also spend a lot of time at the hot yoga studio and have considered becoming a yoga instructor.
I look forward to meeting you,
Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate,
