Christina Romano, MA, LPC, CAS
I was born and raised in Colorado, and moved to South Carolina for college. After college, I moved back to my hometown for a short time and later decided to pursue a PhD in Chicago, Illinois. I love to explore restaurants in my new city, go to concerts, and tour museums in my free time.
My family owns an Italian restaurant in Littleton, CO, so we always bond over cooking and enjoying delicious meals. When I’m not with friends or family, I can be found playing with my dog or making polymer clay earrings, as well!
“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.”
I first earned a BA in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina, and completed an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary next. I am now also pursuing a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Adler University, and have received additional training in Brainspotting.
I began my career facilitating group therapy with court-ordered clients for a wide range of topics, such as Substance Use, Domestic Violence Offenders, Anger Management, and Parenting training. My experience working with a variety of clients has helped me to be able to build an empowering, non-judgmental setting for children, teens, and adults alike.
I believe that all people have the capacity for growth and healing within themselves, achieve their personal goals, and move towards their most fulfilling life.
Usually, the reason people feel stuck, is not due to lack of trying or ability, but because they do not have access to the tools and insights on their own. The joy of my job is to come alongside you and uncover the capacity for growth that is already inside you and your loved ones.
I provide my clients with space to process in addition to feedback regarding their maladaptive patterns and coping skills that can be implemented immediately. I strive to meet the needs of each individual client through practicing coping skills, communication techniques, and challenging unhelpful thoughts in session.
“Therapy offers a safe setting to engage in increasing your self-awareness, self-acceptance, and tools for success.I hope to empower you to reclaim your life story, improve your sense of self, and make the changes you need to live your fullest life.”
I strive to meet the needs of each individual client, couple, or family, and will tailor our time together to meet your personal goals. To do this, I provide my clients with space to process, in addition to feedback regarding their maladaptive patterns, and coping skills that can be implemented immediately. I also offer brainspotting for clients who would benefit from somatic, experiential work to process trauma and decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental/emotional struggles.
