Christina Byington


It can feel overwhelming and tiresome to try and find a therapist who is the right fit for you. Perhaps you’ve had negative experiences in therapy in the past and the idea of catching someone new up on your life just feels daunting. In therapy sessions clients can expect me to show up as warm, understanding and kind. Clients express feeling very comfortable working with me and describe me as someone who, “just gets it,” often without them needing to fully explain something.

I utilize active listening to make connections in behavioral patterns in order to facilitate clinical growth. I cater my therapeutic approach to each individual client to make sure you are feeling better and seeing real results from our work together. This includes you feeling calmer, happier and more carefree.


Christina began working in a mental health agency in 2009, where she found her true passion. Throughout graduate school and for five years afterwards she worked as a clinical therapist and supervisor in a mental health agency, where she developed and implemented the CBT for Depression and Anxiety therapy group. She then worked in a group private practice and later went on to found Elevation Behavioral Therapy. She continues to own and run the practice, where she finds great fulfillment in providing individual therapy, as well as supporting the practice’s wonderful therapists and admin staff. She has presented on OCD, anxiety and trauma at international, national and regional conferences. She also lectures regularly at the University of Denver (DU) in the Graduate School of Social Work.
