Christie Hennigan, LPC, LSATP, CSAC, NCC

Who am I?

I am a dually licensed Mental Health and Substance Abuse provider. I am Licensed in the state of Virginia as a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor). I am also trained and board certified to provide Supervision for Residents pursuing their License. I received my bachelor’s in psychology from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York and my master’s in psychology from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I am certified in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) ARC (Attachment, Regulation and Competency), Trauma Informed Care and Practices, Prolonged Exposure Therapy (for PTSD and phobias), and PCIT (Parent Child Interaction Therapy). I am also licensed as a CSAC (Certified substance abuse counselor) and LSATP (Licensed Substance Abuse Practitioner) trained to provide treatment to those suffering from addictive behaviors and patterns, as well as Relapse Prevention. I am also an NCC (nationally certified counselor).

As a military spouse, I have had the opportunity to work nationally, as well as internationally, developing a diverse perspective of cultural and individual needs. I have worked with individuals in all stages of their lives, and provided support and assistance in helping them overcome those things that inhibit their overall satisfaction with their lives. I have worked with children and adolescents in many capacities and have a strong passion for helping our youth develop the skills and strategies to manage their lives, leading towards a successful future. I am a strong proponent that at times in all of our lives, we could benefit from the support and strategies utilized within the therapeutic relationship. I am passionate about expanding the availability of services to all families in the Peninsula and utilizing an individual based, client-centered approach.

I love working with:

Individuals (Children, Adolescents & Adults), Families and Couples to help support as they overcome the many obstacles that inhibit their ability for satisfaction within their lives. I believe that we can all benefit from mental health services to help empower us to become the best version of ourselves. Life is hard; there’s no easy way to put it. We all need support from time to time and I hope that I can facilitate them through this journey that is the therapy process!
