Christina has been a fantastic counselor to work with, and she is great at helping me detangle my complicated life and what's going on in my brain. She has a worksheet for everything, which I love!

Christina has been such a great support during this difficult time. She always responds within 24 hours to any message that I send. Her support is affirming and kind; her questioning is deep and eye-opening. I personally like how action-oriented she is. i’ve left each session with something to reflect on that feels worthwhile or a strategy to employ in my daily life in order to get clarity and I just couldn’t be more delighted that I was placed in her care. Thank you!!

I have been working with Christina for over a year now, and she has been the best since the start. I had a lot of things on my mind in the beginning of starting counseling, and I can truly say that I have grown so much mentally and emotinally. Even though I still have a long journey left, I am a step closer to being the best version of myself. Since I have started Betterhelp with Christina, I literally have recommended her and the app to everyone I know! She is so amazing because she truly understands me and finds the loopholes in my thoughts. The amount of clarity that I have now has been so helpful in me reaching my goals and in my relationships. I'm so grateful for Christina!

Christina has been a huge help to me, even though we have only been working together for a short time. I get a lot from our sessions but I feel like the real magic happens in our messages to one another. I can reach out to her in my tough moments (often times, daily) and she gives me prompt and constructive feedback. It's a very dynamic and impactful form of therapy that I have found incredibly effective.

Christina is a complete blessing of a counselor. She really allows you to have a safe space to speak your truth, while providing support in navigating feelings and teaching you tools to best assist you de-escalate and decode the deeper meaning of an emotion. What separates her from other counselors is how she truly equips you with means of healing and moving forward, in addition to being an amazing listening ear. Her compassion shines when she takes past sessions’ information to best tailor a treatment plan specifically altered for you. She is the most attentive and transformative counselor I have ever had.

Christina listens deeply and asks me good questions, so I can reflect on my thinking and situation better!

Christina is extremely patient, kind and helpful. She checks in when she hasn't heard from you in a while and remembers all the little details. She's very quick to pick up on things and point out what is needed, in a very clear and understanding way. I have made so much progress it's unimaginable, and I highly recommend her as a counsellor.

Written by L.Y. on May 10, 2019 after counseling with Christina for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

Christina helped me to understand how to assert myself without losing my 'cool'. Through her I've come to realize I'm in control and I can remain in control by gently and firmly standing my ground. She's been wonderful guiding me and showing me how to accept a suggestion without thinking it's an ultimatum. Any suggestions made to me are simply that - suggestions. It's My choice to accept or ignore. If I choose to accept, great, if I choose to ignore, that's fine too. I was quite downtrodden and abused as a child, so grew up believing I had no rights. Christina has taught me I do have rights where my life's choices are concerned. I had to learn - again through Christina's guidance how to accept or decline decisions regarding my life. I now know how to decline, I always 'went along' with decisions I didn't make to keep the peace. I can still keep the peace, but in a more diplomatic way rather than engage in fighting. Thank you Christina.
