I’ve only been working with Christina for a short period, but she has helped me so much. I no longer feel like I am drowning in my anxiety and emotions. I’m learning to gain control of my life and be able to find a healthy balance. She makes me feel heard and that my emotions are valid. She’s very understanding and provides me with many tools to heal from the past and move forward with the future.

Christina has been so awesome to work with from Day 1. She learned about me and continues to work with stuff in my past as well as new things that might pop up. I completely feel comfortable with her while chatting and it’s been a blessing!
