Christa Eastburn, CADC
Executive Director & DBT Coach
Hi Team, I am Christa Eastburn, Executive Director as well as a DBT Coach, Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor (CADC), and Co-leader of our Adventure Therapy and Animal-Assisted Therapy programs. I officially joined the MBC Team in early 2018 and am incredibly proud of our expansion and growth. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology with my BA in Psychology. I’ve been a part of the recovery community in Chicago since 2011, working with different programs at all levels of care. As Executive Director, I am the outreach support for other locations to contact when their clients are needing continuing support, I am our first line of contact when new clients reach out to be connected for individual and/or group support, and I work with our clinicians to make sure we are supplying the best support to our care team and clients. Before MBC, I worked as an AKC Certified Dog Trainer specializing in training and developing skills with reactive dogs, therapy dogs and service dogs. I continue working with therapy dogs with MBC’s Animal-Assisted Therapy program.
Please reach out to me with any questions you could possibly think of, I am happy to help!
