“I really appreciate the mission, vision and values of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) and the opportunity to form real and valuable connections with our patients throughout their journeys,” says Christine Casey, mind-body therapist at CTCA at Eastern Regional Medical Center.
Casey joined CTCA in April 2006 as a survey research administrator at Eastern, in which she managed the hospital’s patient loyalty process. After four years, she then joined the mind-body medicine team in April 2010. In her current role, Casey provides counseling to patients and their families to help them with adjustment to illness, side effect management, and overall mental and emotional well-being.
Prior to joining CTCA, Casey completed a counseling externship at Penndale Middle School in Landsdale, PA, in which she provided counseling to students. Before that, she was a family consultant at The Center for Autistic Children in Philadelphia, and she completed a mental health therapy internship at The Rye Hospital Center in Rye, NY.
A Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Casey holds a certification in counseling from Rosemont College in Rosemont, PA. She also earned a master’s degree in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Richmond. During her undergraduate career, she studied abroad at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.
Originally from New York, Casey has lived in PA for 10 years (although she remains a Yankees fan). She lives with her husband, two children, and two rescue dogs. She and her family enjoy traveling, hiking, exploring and camping – anything outdoors.
