Hello, and welcome to my page. I have been a practicing counselor for over ten years, and prior to my profession, I had been working intimately with people in human services. I encourage you to take the first step in working with me to overcome blocks in your life as we work together in a warm, supportive, and introspective environment. I utilize a strength-based holistic framework treating the whole person. Using a Rogerian approach, I value the client-counselor therapeutic relationship and creating an environment where you will feel comfortable talking and opening up to me. Although I pay attention to your thought process using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), I pay more attention to your underlying emotional needs using emotion focused therapy (EFT). I aim for you to feel valued and supported and gain insight as we explore underlying issues to what is an obstacle in your life or why you are the way you are. Sometimes we will need to explore family dynamics, childhood experiences, and the past to some degree. If time is limited, then I can be solution-focused by exploring concerns, identifying problems, creating goals, and finding solutions. I aim to give you what you need to become a resilient, high-functioning, and self-aware person. You are welcome to discuss anything with me, including intimate details of your personal life or casual conversation for companionship and support. I am here to travel with you on your journey to wherever that takes us. Contact me to learn more about how we can work together.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties

Christina is an extremely knowledgeable individual. I trust that she knows what she is doing because she demonstrates expertise and knowledge each time we interact. I have really appreciated her efforts to collect information about me and use that information to develop a plan for better health and improvement. I also feel that Christina is really listening when I speak with her, which I so appreciate. I am so grateful to have Christina as my counsellor.
I've appreciated the time that I've spent with Christina. She has listened to my issues and added insight that I might not have been able to realize so readily.
Christina has been such a wonderful counselor. She's worked with me for almost a year and I really feel like she's been so helpful at addressing my concerns and needs. I feel really comfortable sharing with her and would recommend her to anyone seeking therapy. I've gone through so much over the last year and during all of it, Christina was there to help guide me and give me tools so that I can become more aware of my feelings and thoughts and how to process them all. Her work with me has been a blessing.
Christina is great and has really helped me to start looking at things in a different way. Interestingly, she's picked on underlying issues that I didn't even realise were bothering me but after our conversations, I can see they are the root of - or are certainly big contributing factors to - my current issues. I thoroughly recommend Christina.
Christina asks all the right questions. She is extremely supportive and non-judgmental. She makes me feel safe and valued. I would highly recommend her.
Christina is attentive, insightful, and intuitive. She is caring and warm. I have really enjoyed my sessions with her so far and am looking forward to more. She approaches therapy from multiple angles and is well organized and thoughtful. I am very impressed with my experience so far.
What I like the best from Christina is that she really cares and tries to understand. She is very smart, professional and experienced. She responds quickly and with details. I feel much better just after started counseling and I totally trust her and rely on her. Thank you Christina.
I have worked with Christina for only a few weeks but in that short time I can tell that she is very intuitive and she has already helped me process multiple things. She is available by multiple methods and offers extra support when she knows it might be needed. I am so thankful I reached out to BetterHelp and that I was matched with Christina. The difference in my life is already noticeable.
Christina is fantastic. Supportive, attentive, and always replies quickly. Nothing, but positive experiences with her.
Christina knows the right questions to ask and understands the weight behind words even when they are typed.
Christina Collins has offered a good mix of CBT and emotional therapy. The worksheets have been appropriately sent and feedback given each time. I have been allowed to work through each issue at my own pace. I would recommended Christina to anyone seeking CBT based therapy.
Christina's assistance allowed me to properly voice out my issues in a structured way.
Christina has been extremely helpful and respectful of my emotional needs. She seems to always know what to say and offers great piece of mind as I sort out my anxieties. I appreciate her calm nature and openness to the things I’m concerned about.
Christina is there. She listens and is present. She pops up when I need her most and pays attention to details. I live in a rural area with few therapists and even fewer affordable therapists. Betterhelp is quite literally, a life saver!
She is amazing and is helping me get through the worst time of my life.
She is very helpful and super nice! She makes me feel very comfortable with explaining everything I am going through.
Working with Christina has been wonderful. She set up goals that met my needs and is extremely responsive. She is attentive and supportive. I feel better knowing I have her support when needed.
Christina is thoughtful, responsive, and caring. She's a great counselor and I'd recommend her to anyone looking to improve their mental health.
Christina was great to talk to and a very good listener. I would recommend her and plan on using her again in the future.
Kristina has been very responsive to my needs and goals. She responds to me very quickly and helps me get right to the heart of the matter. I would highly recommend her.
Christina makes you feel like a priority. She is attentive, caring, and extremely helpful.
Christina is great and I have already recommended her to a friend. She really listens and even responds on her days off if I’m in need.
Christina has been attentive, understanding, has not missed anything I have written or have not written. She has guided me. I can be vulnerable with her. I am grateful for her time and investment
