Meet Christine!


Marianne Tomlinson Therapy, LLC is very excited to have Christine Kim join our staff!

Christine received her Master’s Degree in Counseling at Northwestern University. While her undergraduate and graduate level work has been outside the counseling field, she has taught, advised, and served people from a diverse population such as international students, immigrant families, and business professionals in academic and social settings. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Studies: World Comparative Religion Track and a Master’s Degree in Intercultural Studies and Teaching English as a Second Language from Wheaton College, IL.

Christine believes that every life matters. Everyone’s journey presents different seasons of joys, challenges, and unknowns. The way in which one navigates around those circumstances ushers in stress, potential growth, hope, and/or change. How well one chooses to respond is a reflection on the self in the process of transformation, new opportunities, health, and wellness. Christine enjoys exploring and working with people from all seasons of life and backgrounds. Of particular interest to her is working with those who experience tension or challenges in navigating through: anxiety, stress, identity, grief, divorce, relationships, and adjustment issues. She respects the inherent dignity and worth of every individual and aims to create a safe, caring, and non-judgmental atmosphere for clients to feel valued and hopeful.

Christine approaches therapy holistically as a means for individuals to feel heard and respected, to better understand themselves and others, and to explore alternative options to gain confidence, healing, and strategies through life’s daily and long-term goals. She desires to assist clients in this therapeutic process by providing empathy, open communication, and insights in the struggles and concerns of every person she has the opportunity to work with. Christine considers it a humble privilege to walk alongside clients to serve them in reaching their full potentials, goals, and healing.
