Christina Patac is currently a Licensed Professional Counselor Resident, as well as a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor, practicing in the State of Virginia. She has been working in this field since 2008, starting in administrative management and working her way into the clinical realm, where she felt more purpose and motivation to be of support and help to others, especially having gone through a journey of her own. Prior to working in the mental health and substance abuse services field, she served in the military (US Army/Army National Guard), as well as serving once again after a long hiatus during her time in grad school. Christina has experience working with adults with depression, anxiety, PTSD, psychotic disorders, and substance abuse issues. Life certainly has its challenges, and Christina seeks to be not only a source of support in navigating through life’s challenges, but also help you learn and discover ways to better cope, build toward your inner coping toolbox, and help you reach your full potential. When Christina is not working, she enjoys spending quality time with her husband and children and doing anything outdoors, especially hiking, camping, being in the mountains and beach, as well as gardening (outdoors and indoors).
No matter what the situation, remind yourself: I have a choice.
