CHRISTIANA GROTLISCH, MSW
Christiana is currently a primary therapist at Beach House Treatment Centers after initially working at our Intensive Outpatient Program. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Antioch University with a dual major in Addiction Studies and Psychology and a minor in Urban Communities and Environments. Christiana is master’s candidate at the University of Southern California School of Social Work studying Adult Mental Health and Wellness.
Christiana was formerly a youth pastor and the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries at Brentwood Presbyterian Church and was in charge of programming. She led weekly groups, and frequently incorporated surf groups into her work with the teenagers. Though she loved the job, Christiana felt that she was called to work in the field of addiction treatment after working alongside students and families who were struggling with chemical dependency and entered the addiction treatment field in 2015.
Christiana utilizes evidence-based practices to inform her work with clients, and frequently incorporates solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, strength-based practices, and psychoeducation in individual therapy sessions, case management and groups she facilitates. She even incorporates these approaches into surf/ocean therapy groups.
