About Dr. Ross

AND Faith Works


Dr. Christine Ross is the owner and founder of Faith Works Counseling and native to Kansas City, Missouri and moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1999. Dr. Ross graduated with her Master of Science in Family and Consumer Science with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2010 from New Mexico State University. She continued her education with a Doctorate in Family Studies from the University of New Mexico in 2017. Her dissertation addresses the impact of race from within interracial relationship. Dr. Ross has provided psychotherapy services to hundreds of families in the Albuquerque, Los Lunas and Rio Rancho areas since 2010.

Dr. Ross began her journey as an individual, couples and family therapist in Albuquerque. After having spent several years engaging in office-based psychotherapy, she transitioned to home-based therapy as a Multisystemic Therapist (MST) in which she worked with parents who had teens who displayed antisocial personality traits such as verbal and physical aggression, low academic success, drug use, problem sexual behaviors and legal involvement amongst other struggles.


Aside from Dr. Ross’ models of therapy, she has been a born again Christian for almost 20 years and strives to be authentically whom God created her to be; both in her personal and professional life. Dr. Ross is an assertive, outspoken, straightforward therapist, who enjoys working with a clientele who are ready to work and reach their goals. Dr. Ross believes that, a crisis comes before a change. This means that we do not change unless a situation arises that challenges our way of thinking, being and living. Once that crisis occurs, then it is imperative that we push ourselves to a higher level. We should not ask ourselves “Why me?” But we should ask, “What is it that I need to learn from this experience?” Dr. Ross’s goal is for the Faith Works family to gain Strength through Love.


Dr. Christine Ross is an AAMFT Approved Supervisor and systemic therapist who specializes in Parenting, Racial and Ethnic Identity Based Counseling, Marital and Couples Counseling and Christian based counseling. Dr. Ross utilizes an integrative approach in her therapy practice, drawing from Brief Solutions Focused Therapy and the Ecological Model of change. Dr. Ross also utilizes Structural and Strategic Therapeutic Models. Additionally, she provides clinical supervision to local clinicians from a systemic perspective.
