Holistic Psychotherapist, LPCA, AFMCP, CTP
I'm Christine Boudreau, holistic therapist and mental health pioneer. I'm passionate about helping you overcome complex challenges that stand in the way of living your best life.
You can meet with me in the nurturing environment of your own home. You can easily access my secure telehealth sessions from literally anywhere in the world. I'm a licensed professional counseling associate in the state of Texas, and I provide health coaching, life coaching, and functional medicine consulting across the United States.
My Journey to Holistic Healing
My journey to holistic psychotherapy was born out of personal experience. Like many of you, I once grappled with agonizing mental health issues and persistent physical symptoms. For years, I sought answers within the traditional medical model, visiting countless doctors and therapists. The relief I sought remained elusive.
Frustration eventually led to determination. I applied my extensive background in systems knowledge to decipher the root causes of my own struggles. This personal revelation ignited a mission within me -- to help others facing similar battles.
Holistic Approach to Wellness
I'm dedicated to the powerful intersection of mind and body. My approach recognizes that symptoms often originate from sources deeper than you realize. For example, anxiety, stress, and depression might be manifestations of unresolved childhood trauma, abuse, abandonment, or neglect.
I believe in holistic healing that encompasses both mind and body. Therefore, I blend functional medicine and psychotherapy to address the needs of the whole person. Science has proven that the body keeps score: It remembers pain that the mind tries to deny. To truly heal, we must acknowledge the body's role in the process.
Tailored Therapy for You
My counseling style is as diverse as the individuals I serve. I integrate a variety of techniques and theories to customize the fit for you. I often combine pieces of person-centered, gestalt, humanistic, existential, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), solution-focused, mindfulness-based, and narrative therapies in order to meet your specific needs.
Credentials and Commitment
I'm a functional medicine trained licensed professional counselor associate (LPCA), supervised by Gina Gabriano, LPCS. I have a master’s in business administration (MBA) and a master’s (MA) in professional counseling. I'm a triple-certified coach as well as a certified trauma professional (CTP). I'm a former Project Management Professional (PMP), and I'm certificated in change management agent. I completed the Applied Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP) as well as the certified functional medicine practitioner (IFMCP) training program at the prestigious Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).
As a devoted supporter of my profession, I proudly hold memberships with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the International Association for Resilience and Trauma Counseling (IARTC), the Anxiety & Depression Association of America (ADAA), and the Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists (ATSS). These affiliations reflect my commitment to staying at the forefront of mental and physical health practices.

I'll forever be grateful to her.”
