Christine Cione

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined."  I believe the therapeutic relationship can promote healing, and that therapy does not have to be an intimidating experience.  I work with adults, adolescents and children, and have expertise in play therapy and family therapy.  I am warm and genuine and will always respect where you are on your journey. 

Treatment Focus


I specialize in working with adults and children who are recently bereaved, as well as those with trauma histories. I have extensive experience assisting survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault, and those with depression and anxiety.  In addition, I treat clients who are searching for 

self-awareness and those with relationship difficulties. 

My background


I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over fifteen years experience in the field. I obtained my graduate degree from Long Island University, along with post-graduate work in Marriage & Family Therapy from Hofstra University.  I believe change is always possible, and that life is a journey, 

not a destination.
