Christina Knepper, LCSW-C

I received my Masters in Social Work in 2004 from the University of Maryland in Baltimore. For several years, I’ve worked in private and public school settings, delivering counseling services to children, adolescents and families.

Working with youth and families is a very important and personal mission for me as a clinician, and I strive to tailor my approach to each individual and family need. Being culturally responsive and utilizing a multi-cultural perspective has helped me develop strong connections with others. I believe this skill-set is important as it supports one in meeting his or her personal goals, and it develops trusting and healthy relationships outside of counseling.

Over the years, I’ve worked with individuals and families challenged by ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, anxiety, depression, mood regulation, divorce/ separation, grief and loss; and also with those who struggle with sustaining healthy relationships. My style involves using a cognitive-behavioral and strength-based approach to map out a plan that aims to reach your personal goals.

There is one common theme that my daily work has taught me, and that is change isn’t easy. Change is a journey that’s different for everyone. I’m here to help with that first step!
