Christie serves adult individuals of all genders. In residential and outpatient settings, she has assisted impaired professionals, people with substance and process addictions, disordered eating, spiritual abuse, and other effects of chronic developmental stress.

Christie's ordination as a Dharmacharya (Buddhist minister) of the Embracing Simplicity Contemplative Order occurred 2016 in North Carolina. Her preceptors, Venerable Paññavāti and the late Venerable Paññādipa, named her "Pāssatininna," based on the Pali language verb "to see clearly." (The Venerables were not familiar with Brainspotting; but they were extremely intuitive!)
In both work and spiritual service, Christie seeks to make accessible the healing of Brainspotting to address generational traumas of slavery, racism, chronic poverty and spiritual abuse - whether we are descendants of those who enslaved, those who were enslaved, or both - so that creative expansion may flower here. She is co-founder and peer facilitator of the Brainspotting Mississippi Peer Consult Group and hosts the Brainspotting Mississippi podcast. She is founder and peer facilitator of Body Justice Brainspotting and a regular participant in the monthly Brainspotting Collective Liberation Group.
