Christina Young is a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern based in central Alabama.
She believes that people desire genuine connection within their own families and in their communities. Therapy is a space where individuals and families can come to terms with their insecurities, fears, and anger and allow healing. In strengthening oneself, the individual becomes more resilient and the family regains the ability to thrive.
She has spent the last 13 years working with children of all ages and in varied capacities. As adults teach, parent, and fret over their child’s wellbeing, their children in turn influence them. While each family and its struggles are unique, Christina believes that, through therapy, the family dynamics can be understood and improved. Her hope is that through therapy, every member of the family can experience care and tangible support to better align their actions with the values of their family.
Christina is currently pursuing her master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with a specialization in Child and Adolescent Family Therapy from National University. She earned her master’s degree in Philosophy and Apologetics from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina. She lives with her husband, daughter, and dog in Montgomery, Alabama.
While Christina is a Master's student, her services are available at a reduced rate. Christina will begin her internship in January of 2024 and is currently accepting new clients.
