About Me

"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we'll ever do." -Brene Brown
I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been practicing for about 9 years. My practice consists of a strength-based approach and the use of cognitive behavioral therapy. I have a lot of experience working with abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, oncology, self-worth, grief and loss, body image, couples therapy, and sexuality. I provide a balance of warmth and validation paired with challenging you in working towards self-growth and attaining your personal goals.

I earned my MSW degree from Illinois State University and am actively licensed in Illinois, North Carolina, and Colorado.

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.
