Meet Christine Hallman, LCSW
Christine Hallman, M.S.W, M.Ed. is a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in working with young children and their families. With the combination of master’s degrees in early childhood special education and clinical social work, she is particularly skilled in providing sensitive child and family-centered therapy. Christine has almost 20 years professional experience focused on preschool-aged children, including home-based early intervention services and serving as one of Virginia’s infant and toddler specialists.
Christine knows that becoming and being a parent is one of the most wonderful, but also one of the most difficult, experiences. While most people think that raising a young child is easy, Christine knows firsthand how challenging it can be. In fact, it is no surprise that parents of infants and toddlers are at a greater risk of depression. Because young children experience the same range and intensity of emotions as adults but don’t have the verbal or cognitive ability to express or manage these feelings, young children frequently use behavior to communicate emotions, including challenging behaviors such as tantrums or physically acting out. Young children also may experience a difficult event or trauma and have difficulty coping. While every child’s experience is different, Christine hopes families will feel comfortable partnering with her to help figure out how to help their young child learn more effective and appropriate ways to express emotions which will hopefully last a lifetime.
