Christina Tough

Who am I?

I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree from Simpson University in 2018 and my Master of Social Work degree from Boise State University in May of 2020. Since earning these degrees, I have had the privilege of working with clients within various different settings, including the medical and psychiatric hospital, educational, and home settings. Throughout these experiences, I have worked with individuals from birth to the end of life who have faced a range of extenuating circumstances, held unique strengths, and tackled personal goals. I believe that the client-therapist relationship serves as the initial building block for positive change. I truly enjoy having the opportunity to walk alongside my clients while highlighting their strengths and building upon their accomplishments and goals. I look forward to serving you!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and our wild Husky! We can be frequently found running, kayaking, at the beach, or riding roller coasters at local theme parks.

  • Adolescents
