Christine Weible-Cruz, LSW
Christine Weible-Cruz is a bilingual social worker, treating adults in both Spanish and English. She uses a relationship-centered approach to therapy, taking time to build trust, understanding, and empathy so that she can help clients reach their goals. Christine believes that a strong working relationship is crucial to helping clients meet challenges head-on. She helps them discover new ways of relating to themselves and others through a collaborative approach to bring empowerment and establish real and lasting change in their lives.
A graduate of Loyola University Chicago's Graduate School of Social Work, Christine specialized in Mental Health and Migration Studies, completing her fieldwork at Northwestern Memorial Hospital's Stone Center, where she focused on depression, anxiety, PTSD, complex and developmental trauma, and adjustment disorder. Christine has trained in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics, which she uses to understand the histories, events, environmental, and relational factors underlying clients’ struggles.
Christine previously worked as a museum educator in New York City and she has a master’s degree from NYU in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. These experiences informed her belief that language and culture shape our experience of the world and that examining the impact of these factors can enrich the therapy experience.
