When I was first told I would be seeing a psychologist for treatment to learn Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I was at first skeptical. But even on my first appointment, I appreciated the way Dr. Graham really listened and drew me out. She helped me to see the need to develop coping skills. With Dr. Graham’s guidance, I have learned practical skills to help me with accepting my illness and ways to move forward in my life. Even with some setbacks, Dr. Graham has helped me in cognitive ‘restructuring’ by looking at what happens in my life, including the issue of pain management and with dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome and then viewing these issues in a realistic way. As an example, not thinking in terms of what I should be doing as a way of thinking but accepting my new limits with what I can do. I now communicate with my husband of 42 years better. He understands more of what I am going through and he sees a marked improvement in my coping skills toward my illness. I enjoyed having Dr. Graham as part of my treatment program. I will miss her very much.

What a privilege it has been to work closely with Dr. Christina Graham
over the past 8 years. She is a gifted therapist, and I have been
astounded watching patients transform their lives with her guidance. With
a gentle and encouraging manner, she helps people change the focus of
their daily existence from pain and anxiety to optimism and improved
functioning. Dr. Graham has not only given her clients strategies to
tackle their struggles, she has also given me strategies to better meet
the needs of the patients I serve. I can honestly say she has made me a
better doctor, and she has improved the lives of so many people who have
been lucky enough to work with her.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Graham for help with my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I had a severe amount of anxiety and deep depression about my Chronic illness. I have suffered from CFS for 6 years and was very frustrated with my life and what my future would look like. My life had literally changed and I had little to no hope left. I experienced a loss of who I once was and felt a deep despair of helplessness… Dr. Graham completely understood my Chronic condition and the emotional feelings that I had been having for a very long time. I began to see Dr. Graham for Cognitive Behavior Therapy. She helped me to understand that I could actually change my thoughts about my Chronic illness!! My experience with CBT has changed my life. I now have the tools and motivation I need have the best life I desire… Dr. Graham is very professional and has a sense of humor that I found to assist with my CBT. I can’t thank Dr. Graham enough for her deep compassion and knowledge of helping me with the use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I highly recommend Dr. Graham for anyone who suffers from any form of a Chronic Illness.
