About

Hello! My name is Christina Sauers-Rosnick. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Pittsburgh, PA. I have 10 years of experience working with children and adolescents. Throughout my years of experience, I have worked with a multitude of different clients who have taught me how to be a supportive and effective therapist. I love the work that I do and am very passionate about being a therapist. I hope to be able to help you and your family find the support you're looking for.

Children and Adolescents often struggle with depression, suicidality, self harm, anxiety, emotional disturbance, anger, or have experienced some type of trauma. They have a difficult time communicating their thoughts and feelings, and often require the support of a therapist. I specialize in working with children and adolescents (ages 5-21) who have experienced trauma or a sudden traumatic loss such as a close friend or family member. I have training in EMDR and TF-CBT, both of which are evidenced based interventions in treating and healing trauma and traumatic loss. While trauma is my specialization, I can also assist your child or adolescent manage depression, suicidality, anxiety, and other uncomfortable feelings and emotions. I will help your child or adolescent identify healthy ways to identify, express, manage, and communicate their thoughts and feelings. I can also provide parents with feedback and interventions to utilize with their child or adolescent and conduct family therapy sessions as needed. I utilize various interventions from a wide variety of theoretical orientations including Mindfulness, CBT, TF-CBT, DBT, EMDR, client centered therapy, play therapy, art therapy, and Gestalt therapy.
