Hello Fellow Traveler!
I believe life is a journey full of bumps and bruises. I am just another travel ready and equipped to guide you through the rough patches. I have worked in education with children for over 20 years, and I have been a licensed professional counselor for 6 years. My style of therapy is open and eclectic based upon the needs of my client. Our goal in therapy is to guide you through whatever obstacle has been placed in your path. I believe in an honest direct approach in which you the client will learn to assume responsibility and take ownership and control over whatever is effecting your life.
I am a 42 year old Black American with Latino background. I believe in unity and multiculturalism. When I welcome you into my practice my goal is for you to feel comfortable and not judged. The more you are comfortable, the better the experience and I will provide that safe harbor you may need in times of worry and doubt. I come from a single parent household, and I understand what it is like to struggle. I work very well with young adults and families, but I am also very well versed in other areas such as anxiety, depression, drug addiction with or without dual diagnoses, anger management, work related stressors, as well as parenting and Autism.
It is my sincere hope that this small introduction made you feel welcomed! So come on in and lets work together!

I’ve been in therapy with Christina for a couple of months now. And I can say that each time we have a session it’s like she completely understand where I’m coming from. I would highly recommend her, she makes you feel comfortable in being who you are and encourages you to be true to your self and to explore further more.

In the beginning I wasn't all too confident in getting self help because I felt that my feelings over myself would over power what anyone else would say about me. Working with Christina made me feel that I was able to let go of my most of my negative feelings and help me forgive myself for events that have happened in the past, for that I am most grateful.
