Hey there! I am Cristi Dame and I am excited you are here!
I am first and foremost a mother and a wife to three cute little boys and a supportive and might I add handsome husband. I am a licensed professional counselor specializing in play therapy, sand tray, and expressive art therapy and have worked in settings with some of the most behaviorally and emotionally challenged children that I have met to date. I am incredibly grateful for having the opportunity to work with children and been amazed over and over again about each child’s inner strength to grow and adapt.
IF I COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE, IT WOULD BE TO: Venice… it’s magical and so very romantic. Okay the main reason is for all gelato you can find on every corner.
MY FAVORITE FOOD IS: a pazookie… I crave them often. Any sort of warm cookie with ice cream… delish.
IF I WERE AN ANIMAL, I’D BE: Not just a dog but specifically a chocolate lab…they seem so happy and stress free.
MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THAT I: have had half of my front tooth broken off because my dog as a puppy jumped up and smacked me in my chin. Maybe I take back the dog comment above…they can be trouble.
WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I ONCE: threw away a valentines from a boy in second grade because I was embarrassed but later felt guilty and wrote him a love poem on the last day of school.
I WILL ALWAYS DANCE TO: Anything with a Latino beat…I love Latin dancing anytime and any place.
I REMEMBER: in a far distant memory the days before I had kids when I got to sleep in.
