My desire is to help you learn how to express who you are and to experience growth within your family and other systems surrounding you.

Christina has been very attentive to me by responding to my texts quickly, I really do appreciate that. We are going to try a live online session soon.

Christina has been a great resource for me to turn to when life gets me down and starts to spin outta control. Christina has some real wisdom behind her advice.

Christina has truly been a godsend for me. I've only been working with her for a couple weeks so far, and already in our first two weeks of meetings and messaging I am noticing a great deal of healing. After both calls, I was in a much better place mentally and emotionally than I was beforehand, and left feeling hopeful, motivated, and supported. She offers a variety of tangible, actionable methods of healing and self-discovery for every challenge I'm experiencing. Her expertise and experience matches everything I've been needing to address in therapy. Not only has she provided me with useful tools to help manage symptoms of anxiety, excessive stress, sleep issues, ADHD, and depression, she has helped me address other aspects of my life that I've really been struggling with, from implementing a healthier lifestyle, setting SMART goals, creating routines, grief, trauma, etc. I am so grateful to have been matched with Christina, and truly look forward to continuing to heal and grow while working with her.

I’m only a week or so in, but I felt my first video chat with Christina was helpful and positive and left me looking forward to more.

I have really liked working with Christina. She takes the time to ask questions and understand my goals. She shares her perspective on the situation in an honest and non-judgmental way. I really like that she encourages me to independently use resources outside of our sessions. Best counselor I've ever had!
