Christy Gardner is a Licensed Professional Counselor, who has been practicing since 2015. She graduated from Augusta State University in Augusta, Georgia, with a Master's degree in counselor education.
Christy believes in a person-centered approach, that people are resourceful, capable of self-understanding and self-direction. Her main role is not that of the expert, but a trained professional who honors clients and their stories and seeks to build a trusting relationship in which they feel deeply heard and valued. Her main areas of focus are grief and loss, depression, and anxiety.
In her spare time, Christy enjoys exercising, spending time with family, and engaging in activities that promote professional and spiritual growth.
As a Spanish teacher, Christy enjoyed being a listening ear for my students. She'd always had a desire to help people, so in 2003 she went back to college (Augusta University) to become a counselor. She left the classroom in 2006 and spent 10 years working as a school counselor until retirement in 2015. Since retirement, she has been working as a therapist, pursuing my passion for helping others.
