ABOUT Christina Patac

Christina Patac is currently a Licensed Professional Counselor Resident (license# 0704013874), as well as a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (license# 0710103621), practicing in the State of Virginia under the direct clinical supervision of Cerebral clinical supervisor (licensed): Faye Miles, LPC NPI# 1598060576. Christina has been working in the mental health/substance abuse 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, military population, LGBTQIA+, ADHD, multicultural issues/factors, psychotic disorders, and co-occurring substance abuse issues. Christina additionally works with children, adolescents, couples, and families, giving her a wide range of perspective and experience in working with all individuals in many stages of life. Life certainly has its challenges, and Christina seeks to be not only a source of support and safe space 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, traveling, doing anything outdoors, especially camping, hiking, being in the mountains, tending to her plants, and snuggling with her doggy baby Missy.
