Christian Gibson


Christian Gibson, LMSW

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Christian is originally from Metro Detroit, but grew up as a “third culture kid,” and spent a significant part of her childhood living in Budapest, Hungary. She is the Embedded Counselor for the College of Music and the College of Arts and Letters and started working for CAPS in Fall 2023. Christian has worked with collegiate students in several roles, including Resident Director, Advocate, Prevention Educator, Instructor, and Counselor. She loves to walk alongside students as they heal, grow, change, and come into more fullness- both for themselves and in their relationships. She is passionate about collective liberation and thinks the world would be a better place if we all took a few more naps. Outside of work (and depending on the season), you can find Christian outside gardening with her partner or inside, nose in a book, and snuggling with her pup, Maggie.
