Christine P. Rhodes is a licensed independent clinical social worker based in Providence, RI. She holds LICSW licensure in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts. She works from a trauma-informed perspective and is grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy. She specializes in the areas of addiction, anxiety, trauma and also provides Clinical Supervision.
Christine collaborates with clients to help them to raise awareness of areas of challenge utilizing a strengths-based approach. She believes strongly that each individual is the expert on his/her/their own life, and invites each client to actively participate in treatment. She helps clients to explore the impact of painful events in order to make sense of them, but does so in a way that avoids re-traumatizing the individual. Christine sees individuals who range in age from 21 to 75.
Before opening her own private practice, Christine was the Clinical Director of a large social service agency for ten years, worked as the Substance Abuse Specialist in a hospital setting, and was a trauma clinician in an agency specializing in work with survivors of sexual abuse and trafficking. Her work and education experience have allowed her to gain unique insights into successful interventions, local recovery resources, and team-based, collaborative approaches to treatment.
Christine received her Bachelor of Arts from Trinity College in Connecticut, and her Master in Social Work from Rhode Island College School of Social Work. She is a member of the National Association of Social Workers and has a specialized certification in Anger Management. Christine provides supervision for other clinicians and develops and leads trainings for staff at area social service agencies in Rhode Island. She has been integral in writing the training curriculum for RI 988 and for the ongoing training of that program.
