About me

Move with intention and reconnect to feeling grounded, inspired, and with increased connection to the life you desire! Let the next steps you take be in a direction of discovering the new and letting go of past experiences that might be keeping you stuck. Transcend into the most resilient person you are, always have been, and can feel even more connected to with compassion and deep wisdom of self. You have everything you need to thrive. I can help you with navigating challenges on this journey. I am Christina Gerteis, licensed counselor in Texas, Colorado, and Louisiana, with over 16 years practicing as a helper across many states in the US. My experiences have placed me with regionally and culturally diverse families and individuals in the very context of situations and communities they seek change. I am humbled and grateful to have been on this path of learning with others, and would be honored to share with you what I understand can be effective steps to increasing control and re-discovering direction. Whether you are starting on a new path of change or exploring strategies to gain support and increase insight into an evolving process, your time is now.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Christina Gerteis. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Christina is an excellent listener and supporter, and she is a very knowledgeable and nurturing. I feel heard and I feel seen, and I never feel judged or as if I am too much. Christina's warm manner puts the client at the center of navigating their own journey and providing the guidance needed to embrace what comes with that journey. I am thankful for the healing she has helped me with, and I highly recommend her as a Therapist.
