Christina is such a compassionate person who is well versed in so many areas of care. She listens closely both to what you say (and don't say) and helps parse apart the complexity of life to see the fundamentals of humanity. She has helped me process past traumas in a safe, insightful way and has helped me work through my therapy goals. A wealth of knowledge and an incredible person. You will feel lucky to be matched with her.

Christina Kunisch is an excellent therapist, and provided exactly what I needed when I was dealing with a recurrence of depression. She is professional, has a wealth of knowledge, and is focused on discovering what a client needs and then providing the understanding, techniques, and strategies that will best help that client meet their goals. I appreciated Christina's ability to listen fully, to ask questions or restate what she heard to make sure she understood what I wanted to communicate, and to provide me with just the right amount of new information and/or skills to practice during the time between our sessions. I am so happy with the progress I made on my therapy goals and will definitely request to be matched with Christina if I need therapy again.
