Professional statement

Christine Grounds is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a practice in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York. Christine specializes in working with individuals in their 20s and 30s who are either navigating a life transition or a career change. She also has extensive experience working with parents across the lifespan, including first-timers or parents of kids with special needs. In addition, many of her clients have depression and/or anxiety and come see her because of issues within relationships, a lack of relationships, or loneliness.

Christine’s treatment approach is relational and eclectic. She describes her style as active and collaborative. In sessions, Christine works with clients to address current or long standing issues. She helps them “re-frame” their reactions and provides them with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.

To gauge how much progress is being made, Christine periodically checks in with patients to ask them how they feel the process is going, both in terms of their internal experiences and with external relationships.

Christine earned her Master’s in Social Work from New York University and has been in practice for over 16 years. She also holds certificates in both Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Supervision from the Training Institute for Mental Health.
