About Christina Allameh, AMFT

My name is Christina Allameh, AMFT # 111339 and I graduated with a master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in Marriage and Family therapy from the Chicago Professional School of Psychology. I have been working the field for the last four years. 

I believe through hard work and introspection we can discover our purpose. It was through this journey I found my calling. I have a passion for psychology, mindfulness, self-awareness, personal development, goal achievement, and life balance. As a therapist, I have worked with families, children, adolescents, individuals on the autism spectrum, adults, and couples. I have successfully 

treated issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, crisis management, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, and divorce. Helping to improve the lives of others is a lifelong process. This belief empowers me to continually hone my skills, expand my abilities, and keep up with the latest forms of treatment.​

I use a variety of treatment modalities including but not limited to; Cognitive-Behavioral Theory, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis. I believe that there is no single solution for everyone; because of this, I aim to identify the underlining issues facing each client and base the modality of treatment on the client's diagnosis, personality, and individual needs.​

So often, our pasts can interfere with our lives in the present and we can find ourselves suffering through the same ongoing pain. Through personal exploration and counseling, a deeper understanding can be attained, and the sense of self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address difficult emotional problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive patterns of behavior.
