My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgmental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You are not alone; allow me to be there for you.

Christina has helped me navigate the death of my husband of 38 years. She has given me the space to explore the deep sadness, and has also given me the tools to understand the grieving process better. I value the text chat, as I cry a lot. This resource has been very effective, and I feel comforted and supported by Christina.
