Professional statement

Christie Lebrun is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Downtown Boston. She works with individuals 10 years and older. Many of Christie’s clients come in to address life transitions, identity development, anxiety/depression, self expression, and emotion identification. Christie is particularly passionate about serving young adults. She also has advanced training in the area of Adjustment Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), and Trauma related Disorders.

Christie is trained in Expressive Arts Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Existential Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Trauma-informed approaches, and Holistic Approaches such as mindfulness and therapeutic journaling, in which she utilizes the therapeutic relationship and the arts to explore patterns in thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs to clarify goals, values, and sense of self. In session, Christie focuses on grounding techniques, breathing exercises, and creative arts, such as journaling, play, music, and visual arts, to explore concerns. This approach supports clients to learn how to take care of themselves, understand themselves - and then how to express themselves so they can be understood by others.

Christie's style is non-judgmental, adaptive, and grounded. When clients first start therapy, Christie will work to build a comfortable and non-judgmental environment where they feel safe to explore past experiences and set achievable goals.

Christie received their M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling specializing in Expressive Arts Therapy from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. She has worked at Bay State Community Services, serving youth and families supported by the Department of Mental Health. Outside of private practice, She enjoys arts based activities, such as painting, dancing, creative writing, etc. and nature based activities, such as hiking, stargazing, and tree-hugging. Christie offers both in-person and remote therapy sessions.


Message to clients

Are you struggling to find purpose in your life? You may feel you don't know who you are, struggling with low self-esteem, or struggling to express yourself and connect with loved ones. Perhaps you are going through a life transition, feeling stressed or burnt out, or struggling to process childhood trauma.

I know the process of starting therapy can be challenging. I want to collaborate with you to reach a place of comfort and confidence. We will work together to understand the root of your concerns and create goals to walk you to your best self. I will gently challenge you to explore your circumstances from a different perspective. If you are ready to understand, love, and accept yourself, allow me to guide you through self-discovery.
