I call Christi my Sherpa and for good reason: I would be lost without her!! She has taught me so many effective anxiety reducing practices that have made my life easier and happier. Christi has a peaceful and calming presence that makes her easy to talk to, and I look forward to our sessions.

Christi is knowledgeable and caring of my mental health. She provides a safe space to validate the feelings that I have and is not afraid to contradict me when she feels I may be misinterpreting something. I can ask her for her personal opinion and not be scared that she is just saying things to say things.
I’ve bounced around a few therapists on the BetterHelp platform, and I’ve been the most comfortable with Christi. I’ve even begun scheduling multiple meetings a week because it doesn’t feel like a chore anymore but a place of positivity and healing.
