A little more
Christy is a Huntsville native, but she has lived in several places within the United States.  She has three small children and enjoys helping in her local community.  Her lack of support after a tragic event prompted her to start her counseling career.  She never wants another person to feel the pain of experiencing their hurts alone.

Christy feels that being a counselor is not just a job but her life’s purpose.  For that reason, she often pour her heart into learning not only for her own healing journey but the healing journey of her clients.  Her personal religion is Christianity, but she has clients of all religious and cultural views.  Christian counseling is available upon the request of the client.

“I feel it is an honor hearing the stories of my client’s lives.  I know for some it can be a very difficult and uncomfortable task to open up, but often those individuals express how helpful it was to discuss something they have been keeping inside.  That is the beauty in the counseling relationship and why I love helping. – Christy Elzer-Williams
