About Me

Hello, and welcome to my page. I have been a practicing counselor for eight 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.

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.

Amazing therapist.

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!
