Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Montgomery County

Pronouns: she/her

Christine, Founder and Director of the Quarterlife Center, is a licensed clinical social worker with extensive experience working with quarterlife clients. At age 24, she experienced her own quarterlife crisis. It motivated her to closely examine who she was and how she could create a fulfilling life for herself and be a positive influence on her loved ones and community.

This journey inspired her to help others successfully navigate the changes, challenges, and exciting experiences of young adulthood. She enjoys helping quarterlifers thrive and live more intentionally as they make important choices about relationships, careers, and their place in the world. In addition to helping her clients, Christine enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, playing tennis, and taking a good power nap.
