    Christine Barker, Therapist, Inner Courage Counseling

    Christine Barker is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), and has been in private practice since 2010. She earned her Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Lewis University. Christine specializes in working with individuals (teens and adults), couples, and families on a variety of concerns ranging from relationship issues, depression and anxiety, to personality disorders. She is also trained and experienced with Divorce Mediation Services.

    “I believe that each person’s issues are unique, and therapy changes on a case by case basis. Each of us have a different combination of attributes, personality characteristics, experiences and backgrounds. The combination of all that is YOUR life, and only yours. Therefore, I use an eclectic and empathic approach with each of my clients and sessions. I truly enjoy counseling individuals, families, and couples who are ready to move their life forward in a positive direction.”
