In response to the COVID-19 crisis, I now offer telehealth individual and couples counseling sessions for both current and new clients. The secure platform I'm using will allow you to stay in contact with me as a current client, or connect with me as a new client to help you navigate through this unusual and trying time.

Mission

A trauma therapy practice named Wonder?

Yes!  Aren’t you curious about why you’re always anxious, or having the same fight with your partner or feeling so bad even though your life seems so good? I am.

Curiosity is at the center of this clinical practice because it is the first step for change. I still get eye-rolls for that approach from those who believe in the simply diagnose and treat brand of Psychology.

Instead of bandaiding a symptom or trying to rid a person of elements of who they are, we will get curious about why things happen in your life.

As we work together we’ll get to watch you grow and change in all the best ways. That resilience is certainly awe-inspiring.

Services

At Wonder Inc. we offer a variety of therapy services in person and online. We also offer Explicit Parent Coaching via secure video conferencing as well as in courses and groups. 

Are you an overwhelmed postpartum mother, confused empty nester, lost after a divorce or changing careers? As therapists trained in trauma specialties like EMDR and TS Mindfulness, we work best with women desperate to change unhelpful patters in life and relationships. Change is hard and sometimes scary. If you’re looking for help navigating shifting seas, you’ve found safe harbor at Wonder Inc.

Tired of fighting? Sick of the silence? Does everything look fine outside but inside you feel anything but fine? Come learn to listen and speak more effectively in a safe, judgement free space. We believe every partnership deserves to feel good for every partner.

Are you here because you are tired of the chaos inside your home or is it that you can't take any more arguing with your kids or their teachers over what is happening at school? We've got what you need to feel better and start getting along well with your kids and their teachers.

We heal in community and there is strength in sisterhood. Our groups have both. They are all part education, part therapy, part the power of community. All that can add up to life-changing fun. Whether it's a new job, a move, an empty nest or just the beauty of aging, our groups help you to alleviate the pain in growing pains.

Parenting children 12-20 is hard work and sometimes it can feel pretty lonely. Join this group of fellow moms and dads for monthly education, inspiration and most of all a community of people in the trenches for support.

Did your expectations of motherhood fail to match reality? No matter if it's your first or fifth, a new baby brings great change and often huge emotions for mom. Our support groups provide just the empowering education, inspiration and community you need.

Have you talked and talked about a problem and still feel stuck? Research has shown that we carry trauma in our bodies. Trauma sensitive yoga and meditation are tools to help release the hold that trauma and stress can have on us. We use slow and mindful movement and focus to heal from within, so that we can regain power over our lives. This isn't your power yoga class but it is empowering.

When you step away from your routine, clarity can present herself. Unlike vacations which often add more stress, retreats offer structured relaxation to help you truly reconnect with yourself. Full of life-affirming connection and inspiration, Restoration Retreats are time well spent.

Work with Me

If you’ve scrolled this far, you are likely looking for whatever it takes to feel better. We are here to help. We work with individuals, parents, couples and families. We may work through trauma, or manage relational issues and life transitions. Our mission is to foster hope and facilitate change for one’s mind, body, spirit and community. We do that through providing a safe place to tell your story and learn to embrace your life. You’ve worked hard to get here. Aren’t you ready to start feeling good about it?

About Cristie

Dr. Cristie Ritz-King, PsyD
LPC, RYT

Have you ever felt the need to shut yourself completely off to make room for somebody else? Are you completely overwhelmed by the roles you’ve grown into even if they are all you ever dreamed of?

I am passionate about working with people who are feel stuck in a role or patterns that are making their life hard.

Our work together is all about holding space for you.

I’ve spent the better part of  20 years learning, living, and discovering the tools to help you go from overwhelmed and lonely to knowing your worth and your boundaries so you can build relationships and love the life you’ve built.

I hold space for you so we can do just that.

So, who am I? Why should you trust me? These are excellent questions and frankly, ones you should be able to answer before working with anyone.

Who am I?

I am a mom. I say that first because even though it didn’t happen until I was old enough to already think I knew who I was, becoming a mother completely rearranged my identity and forced me to examine a whole bunch of stuff I would have rather ignored in order to truly know myself. <Hello, limiting beliefs, relational patterns, recognition that I’m more like my mom than I realized, and a slight identity crisis.> So, I know at thing or two about handling change.

    Some days, there is a tail on your yoga mat and you have to make the best of it. Choosing to focus on the fortune of having the option of zoom-yoga with a favorite instructor rather than the hassle of zoom yoga with a 90lb intruder. Attitude changes many things.

    Literally a snapshot of a trauma therapist. Some books are newer and some are well-loved and constantly referenced. What’s missing is the indulgent fiction on my kindle. Everyone needs an escape from the heavy now and then, right? I get mine reading fluff before sleep. What are you reading? Do you have a work stack and a life stack like me? . . . #traumainformed #mentalhealth #traumayogatherapy #mindbody ...
