Christina Armstrong, MSW, LCSW

Years at IWU: 8 years

Areas of focus: trauma, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, low self-esteem, anger, family/relationship issues, and adjustment-related difficulties. 

Interests: I have twin 9-year-old girls who are very active in gymnastics, ballet, and academics. I also enjoy hiking, CrossFit, traveling, boating, and spending time with family and friends. 

Personal motto: It takes a lot of courage to start therapy, as many of us are hard-wired to believe we need to do things on our own. Don't carry the pain on your own when others are here to help you through it. 

Most rewarding part of counseling: To be able to witness growth in spite of all the pain and obstacles someone has had to endure, all while knowing that they have trusted me to help guide them through this journey called life.
