Joel Christie, MAJoel Mag live


        Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern IMH10972


Joel received his Bachelor's in political science from the University of Central Florida, and his Master's in Mental Health Counseling from Asbury Theological Seminary. He is a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern with the state of Florida and is currently finishing his clinical hours. He has already passed the license exam.

Joel believes there is tremendous value in exploring thoughts and behaviors in order to highlight existing strengths, and also to address areas within a person's life that may be interfering with happiness or limiting potential. The mind is wonderfully versatile, and though we sometimes adopt harmful thinking patterns that lead to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and other problems, we can also learn to adopt healthier, more empowering ways of thinking that lead to greater life satisfaction.

Joel works with people of all ages dealing with depression, anxiety, mood swings, frequent frustration, and low self-esteem. He has also found success helping clients confront their fears and limitations, while encouraging them to embrace their talents and abilities to find meaning and greater satisfaction in life. He works with individuals, couples, teenagers, Christians, families, and people who are interested in knowing themselves better.

Joel loves good stories, whether that's reading a novel, watching a movie, or sitting with people and talking about whatever crazy stuff happened this week. His love of stories is one of the reasons he became a counselor, as he believes we all have valuable stories. Joel also loves to write.

Relationships are one of the most important parts of the human experience, and Joel believes there is a unique opportunity within the structure of counseling to utilize this and form a therapeutic relationship that allows for tremendous growth and healing.
