Christina Romano, MA, LPC

Hello, I’m Christina

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate

I have a passion for helping people embody and cherish their truest selves and develop long lasting, healthy relationships. In therapy, my goal is to partner with clients to help them achieve their personal goals and move towards their most fulfilling life.

I am a Colorado native and have lived in the Denver area my whole life, with the exception of completing my undergraduate degree in South Carolina. While I enjoyed my time in the South, I could not wait to live close to the mountains again. My family owns an Italian restaurant, so we love to bond over cooking and enjoying delicious meals. In my free time, I enjoy trying new restaurants, reading a good book, watching movies, volunteering, and trying a new creative project like painting or jewelry making.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME, AS A THERAPIST, IS THAT MY CLIENTS FEEL SAFE TO BE FULLY THEMSELVES. I STRIVE TO PROVIDE AN EMPOWERING, NONJUDGMENTAL SETTING FOR CHILDREN, TEENS, AND ADULTS, ALIKE. I HOPE TO HELP MY CLIENTS IDENTIFY WAYS IN WHICH THEIR BELIEFS, THOUGHTS, OR BEHAVIORS HAVE BEEN KEEPING THEM STUCK FROM THE LIFE THEY WANT TO BE LIVING.

I DECIDED IN 8TH GRADE THAT I WANTED TO BE A COUNSELOR AFTER I REALIZED THAT I LOVED BEING ABLE TO TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT THE REAL, DEEP THINGS GOING ON IN THEIR LIVES. SINCE THEN, I HAVE BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES DEVELOP HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEMSELVES AND OTHERS. IN THE PAST, I HAVE WORKED WITH COURT-ORDERED CLIENTS AND FACILITATED SUBSTANCE USE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OFFENDER GROUPS. I AM TRAINED IN BRAINSPOTTING, TRAUMA-FOCUSED COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY FOR CHILDREN, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OFFENDER TREATMENT, AND SUBSTANCE USE/ADDICTION TREATMENT. I AM ALSO TRAINED IN ‘PREPARE AND ENRICH,’ WHICH IS A CURRICULUM USED FOR PRE-MARITAL AND COUPLES COUNSELING.
