Christina is amazing! I’m waiting for her responds like a little kid, checking my emails 100 times a day. I’m so excited when I see her messages! She is very helpful and asks a lot of questions and helps me face things I would just hold in myself to avoid conflict. She helps me endure.
Christina is wonderful. So patient with me and so engaged. From almost the first day she listened and NAILED what I was seeking help for and has approached it with a clear plan that I can easily work with. She's the best! I am so lucky to be working with her!
Christina is not at all patronizing or assertive as some medical professionals tend to be. She deals with the issues that lead people to seek counseling and genuinely helps them to set and achieve goals to improve the quality of their life and well being. In short, she does her job without leaving the client feeling like just another paycheck. Her counsel is truly helpful and her manner professional.
So far she seems like a caring person, and she’s brought some things to my attention that I didn’t notice about myself. I’m working on myself in a new light now feeling way more confident.
