I have been working with Christina for a few months, and I have found it to be extremely helpful. She combines offering helpful coping and behavioral techniques with empathetic and active listening. She is also active in between our weekly sessions, and checks in with me to see how I'm doing on something I've identified as a challenge or a goal I've set. I have no doubt that Christina genuinely cares and wants to see me succeed. With her support, I'm tackling processing some of the most difficult periods of my life and moving on from traumas. She is truly wonderful!
Christina has been so extremely helpful for me. She has guided me to better myself, to build a strong foundation, helped me know my self-worth, and to know that I am an individual and strong by myself. She has helped me process and move past my traumas. Because of her guidance, I am a 10x better version of myself.
I worked with Christina for a couple of months & she truly is an expert in her field. I have been seeing a therapist since my parents divorced when I was 9 & Christina taught me so many new things about emotional management that I had never even heard before. She offered so many additional resources that I feel confident and comfortable moving forward on my healing journey without her guidance. Although I will miss out weekly sessions as they were such a safe space for me to share. I would recommend Christina to anyone dealing with emotion conflict, anger issues or trauma.
