My passion is to help individuals heal from trauma.
By creating an open, safe, collaborative, engaging, and supportive environment the process of healing from trauma can begin.
I specialize in working with teens and adults from all walks of life. I work with individuals who have experienced trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, stress and anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders.
During my work experience, I utilize an array of therapeutic interventions stemming from evidence-based models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, mindfulness, and dialectical behavioral therapy, while maintaining a culturally responsive, client-centered approach.
About me: I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Health Administration, and I recently completed a Master’s degree in Social Work with a trauma certificate. My previous work experience included teaching and mentoring intellectually and emotionally challenged individuals with disabilities.
When I am not working with clients, I enjoy and participate in all things outdoors. I enjoy mountain hiking, biking, running, rock climbing, kayaking, and downhill skiing for sports.
I believe that engaging in health and wellness while practicing self-care empowers individuals providing guiding direction towards learning, skillset development, and presents opportunity for the initial change process to occur.
I would be glad and honored to welcome you, to assist you on your path toward self-discovery, growth, learning, healing, and recovery.
Hello there, my name is Christina Billings, and I am thrilled that you are taking this important step toward your mental health and wellness journey. I believe that healing comes in many forms, and therapy is a great way to gain the necessary tools to cope with daily stressors that come along the way.
As a therapist, it is my goal to provide a comforting, empathetic, and non-judgmental setting that will provide you with a safe place to speak about what is impacting your daily life.
My background includes working with Transitional-age youth (18-25) and adults in specialty mental health community outpatient settings for the past 4 years. Before that, I worked in Special education for the County of San Diego, working with justice-involved adolescents diagnosed with mental illness. I have worked with a variety of diagnoses from mild to severe, ranging from psychosis disorders to mood disorders.
My education includes my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice with a concentration in human services and a master’s degree in counseling psychology with a concentration in marriage and family therapy. My therapeutic modalities include cognitive/dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused, strength-based, psychodynamic, and person-centered.
My favorite things I enjoy include gardening, dancing, listening to music, spending time with family, and playing with my English bulldog.
Hi, my name is Melissa Strickland. Welcome to The Center of Resiliency Therapy & Counseling. Thank you for taking the first step toward healing. There are so many challenges, obstacles, and trauma in our lives that it can be overwhelming at times. You don’t have to go it alone, that is why I am here to listen and help you with tools to overcome/cope these challenges. I will be here to support and help you through any difficulties in your life. The journey can be tough at times, but we will push through it together.
I was born and raised in San Francisco California and currently reside in Lassen County, California. Most people don’t know where that is, so if I say where the Dixie fires were several years back, that is where I am at. I have a degree in Psychology from Ashworth University, an MSW from Walden University, a Computer Science degree from University of San Francisco, certification in domestic violence and suicide prevention with the state of California, undergrad is in law, and a Civil litigation paralegal certificate in criminal law. I have been a therapist for over 6 years.
My expertise is in relationships, working with children, families, individuals, anxiety, OCD, panic attacks, self-esteem, body image, group therapy, the prison system, mentally challenged offenders, PTSD, depression, Domestic violence, LGBTQ community, culturally competent, human trafficking, and abuse. When I first began in my field, I primarily worked with offenders, human trafficking, and domestic violence. I then branched out to different fields.
I am divorced and have a grown son. I currently live with my 94-year-old father in the mountains. We lost mom over 12 years ago and he won’t leave the home they built together. I am so blessed to have everyone I love so much in my life. I can relate to the loss of loved ones. I learned to take each day at a time and be thankful for what I have. Granted I want to be selfish and ask to have my mom come back, but alas, I have to face the fact that it isn’t going to happen.
This is me in a nutshell. Thank you Melissa 😊
