Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Christine Alisa specializes in her work with children, adolescents and their families. Her book, "Turning the Hourglass" is about the therapy she has developed with children specializing in a combination of Regression work and Gestalt Therapy with Children and Adolescents. She also works with adults who find they have patterns that they repeat no matter what they do consciously to eliminate those patterns. Regression Therapy opens the doors to unconscious material that is blocking a person's progress in relationship to themselves and others. Christine has trained therapists in the United States, The Netherlands, Brazil, Portugal and India in her work with children and adults. She is available for consultation sessions to discuss her work. Her latest article in The Therapist (July/August 2012) discusses her therapeutic model utilizing birth and pre-natal trauma in children. Chris, as she prefers to be called, has been in private practice for over 25 years. Her expertise with abuse issues, trauma and spiritual healing processes along with her gentle, compassionate approach to clients has been a source of joy for her. She belongs to several organizations and invites you to visit her website: www.healingthroughalternativetherapy.com
