About Me

Hello! Thank you for reading my profile. I am a marriage and family therapist (LMFT) licensed in California with over 18 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, issues pertaining to sexuality, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and issues pertaining to spirituality. I also helped many people who have experienced physical and sexual trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and down to earth. My goal is to create an environment where you feel at ease talking about what is in your heart and on your mind. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psycho-dynamic counseling. And I love Tapping! Tapping is a really great technique to destress and process intense feelings. With that said, each person is different and has different needs. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is about teaming up to give you the insight, inner wisdom and motivation to make the changes you want in your life. We will come up with a plan to work on improving your current situation. Some people simply need a compassionate person to hear them out. Some people may want a concrete action plan with steps and advise on how to proceed. Our work is to collaborate and come up with a plan that would be most effective in meeting your needs.

On a practical matter, my office hours are between 10 am and 8 pm, Monday through Thursday. I will respond to messages within 24 hours. If you would like a video chat session during a time that is not listed, please send me a message and we may be able to work out scheduling a time that works for both of our schedules.

I look forward to working with you!

Respectfully,
Christina Kohfield, LMFT 78980

Christina is awesome, she’s been so helpful in the 3 months I’ve been with her in transitioning and growing into the next stages of my adult life. She’s always supportive and I know that she’s in my corner cheering me on. She also helps me get deeper and reflect on my challenges in life, so I can approach them from a strategic and beneficial perspective. Thanks Christina!

Christina has been such a huge help to me in just the last couple months that I've been working with her. She's a great listener, very supportive, and also very encouraging. I feel like I've made a lot of progress so far and I'm looking forward to continuing the work I'm doing with her. Better Help is also a great app compared to the other popular therapy app. It's pretty easy to use and also think you get more for your money. I mos def recommend!

So far after two conversations, I feel very comfortable with my counselor. She seems to care about my well being.
