Christina Morris MS/LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Contract Therapist

"Cristy taught me to stop and think before I act, helped me to change my bad habits and my lifestyle, and turned my life around. Being able to touch base with Cristy helps a lot. Now when I face a problem, I stop and think before I act. I would refer a friend and explain to them that Behavioral Medicine has changed my life, and tell them about the positive experiences I have had there." - Kerren

"Christy was very helpful. She listened well and taught me how to focus on present life more and to give past issues time to understand and mend. Thanks to Cristy, I now feel my life is important and comes first. She taught me not to jump to conclusions, step back and take it slowly. Now I am able to enjoy my friends. Family relations may take more time. I would refer a friend to Behavioral Medicine, give them their phone number, and encourage them to give it a chance. My experience was worth it." - Rosie
