I absolutely love and always look forwarding to speaking with Christina. Christina is so easy to speak with because she listens to me and gives me great advice. I am so happy that I was paired with her.
Christina has been a great support to me these past few months. She is an excellent listener and keeps me accountable to my goals. I'm so glad we were paired!
She is so great and fun to work with. I feel like I have a friend in CJ, but also someone who is professionally trained to give me the right advice! The hour flies by because she is such a great conversation facilitator and gives me such food for thought!!
CJ so far has been very helpful and helping me to better communicate my feelings.
Christina is great. She is very professional, knowledgeable, direct, and caring. She not only provides you with great suggestions to get you where you want to go but also provides you support outside of the scheduled sessions.
Amazing and kind
She is super great, I’m also glad that she is a person of color/black I really feel she can relate to me better!
