Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the Tampa Bay area, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and go above and beyond to cater to their needs. This has led me to becoming Adoption Competency Certified, a Nurturing Parenting Facilitator, Trauma-Informed, and introduced to Infant Mental Health!

LMFT #MT3776 (Expires: 2023-03-31)
she gives me peace, i know and can feel that she speaks to me the truth not "what I want to hear", she is logical and supportive and very convincing.
she is very organized and breaks up each problem into small parts to treat it very well.
I just wish I followed her since long time ago
Excellent!! Really professional therapist
I didn't know how it would start and felt awkward but she made me feel welcome and we got down to business and it's been a joyride since the start.
Definitely would recommend
It’s only second session but the assignments and the consistency is looking great so far. Maybe I wasn’t cut out for traditional counseling in a office . For some reason this feels different/well suited and tailored for people like me.
Christina has always gone out her way to be there when I have needed someone the most. She challenges and supports me at the same time. I am a different person, for the better, since I have started counseling with her.
I'm extremely happy with the progress that I have made with my counselor
Christina is helping me work trough alot of stuff, when I started this first I found it very hard to open up and be honest with how I felt but that has become alot easier now. I also learned how to handle my emotions and my thinking alot better.
Christina is attentive, caring, patience, a great listener, and a great mentor. Her friendly demeanor makes me feel comfortable in expressing myself. I never feel judged and I always feel as if I am speaking with a close friend. She has guided me, challenged me, and shared great resources for me to use in between sessions. She responds quickly and holds me accountable in the ways that I need to grow or process the challenges I am facing. She has helped me in the areas of family therapy and as well as therapy for my teen daughter. I recommend her and I wish there were more therapists like her available. The world would be a different place.
Christina has helped me understand and untangle some complex negative feelings and thoughts I had about myself and my past and I am learning how to live a more fulfilled and productive life!
I think she is great. I dont know if she is going to be able to help me because I just dont have a lotnof confidence that cousnelling is the only thing I need. Unfortunately during a pandemic this is the only thing I can do. She has been very professional, not judgemental and completely patient with me.
Christina has been considerate and supportive from our very first session. I always leave out meetings with a new perspective and really feel my time with her is helping me deal with my issues. I can’t recommend her enough.
Christina is a wonderful councilor, she’s really understanding, supportive, and makes everything seem so simple, exactly what I loved about her. I started worrying less thanks to her. I’m very thankful for her time and effort. God bless her
Christina is friendly, experienced, and good at reading people and situations. I started my sessions with her so that I could sort out one thing that was haunting me regarding my relationships. However, after I got that part of my life sorted I decided to stay longer so that I could sort out all of the other things that were bothering me as well. Sometimes I'd go into a session not having prepared myself - however, she still always finds a way to make each session valuable. I'm confident that she has and will continue to help me improve my chances of someday finding + building up a meaningful relationship with someone and not ending up alone.
I truly feel listened to and respected when I chat with Christina
Christina is great. She's very attentive and can switch on the spot when she realizes there might be a root issue to get at that hasn't been the focus. I feel very comfortable with here..
Christina has helped me greatly over the past year as my counselor! I'm so glad I've had her to help coach me through the small, big, good or bad in my life. She is personable, friendly, and you can tell that she genuinely cares. I would say my self esteem and ability to handle my anxiety has vastly improved because of her and her practical approach to helping me see situations I was going through from a different perspective. She is relatable, non judgemental, and easy to talk to. I genuinely look forward to our sessions every week!
Love talking to Christina! She is great. Working with her and thinking about the exercises and questions she asks have really helped me uncover some patterns i hadn’t realized i had.
Christina is responsive and supportive during a difficult time.
Christina has been incredibly helpful and supportive as I went through a very difficult time in my life. She always listened and provided sound advice and help that was thought provoking and helped me help myself. I would absolutely recommend Christina’s assistance to anyone in need.
She is a very knowledgable and kind individual who is not afraid to challenge behaviours and thoughts. Very supportive, very honest.
Christina was very helpful during my journey toward healing. She listened and prompted me with questions that helped me direct my thinking differently and diversify my perceptions. She also shared her honest opinion when I was too hard on myself. Having an honest and kind counsellor has been very important to me .
Thank you, Christina.
Very friendly and helpful, she’s a good listener and trying all the time to dig deep in order to understand and analyze in a proper way so she can come up with helpful resolutions.
Christina helped me through a difficult period of life and also helped me to understand what’s going on around me. With the help of her I realised how live through changes and understand people around me. I’m really grateful for her, thank you!
In our first couple weeks working together, Christina has been very in tune with identifying what my biggest issues and concerns were to so we could address first. She has been great listening and providing feedback and questions that help provoke additional thought on my side. She has been easy to talk to and made me comfortable in doing so.
I've seen several therapists in my life, and Christina is one of the ones I've felt most comfortable around. She is very understanding and uplifting, and helps me to put my anxieties in perspective and remember that I need to take care of myself first.
I love Christina. She’s a great counselor who gives me a variety of ways to interact with her. When we don’t have a session scheduled she’ll always ask how I’m doing and respond in a timely manner.
Christina is great and very understanding. I learned a lot about myself and I am really happy with the progress I made.
I really like Christina as my counsellor. She listens to me and offers her views in a manner that makes me think about things in a different light. She is attentive and friendly. I can tell she really cares about what she does.
She is great. My rating went wrong please ignore it, as my phone didn’t register what I was trying to give... I would definitely recommend Christina. She is attentive, caring, sharp and responsive. Highly recommend.
She’s great and amazing.
Christina is very encouraging and understanding. Very safe.
So far Christina has been really helpful in helping me manage my stress surrounding multiple areas. She asks the right questions and encourages me to say as much as I can while creating a space where I know I don't have to speak about something I'm not ready to yet.
Christina is great! She listens and gives good answers without pushing any opinions, she really helps me :)
She is the best.
Christina helped me through a very tough time in my life and always had prompt replies and encouraging and helpful advice and homework. I can say my life has drastically changed for the better since starting counseling with Christina. She has a way of making you realize the reasons behind your feelings and really helps you understand yourself better. The sessions themselves were eye opening and the homework given were very helpful. Thank you Christina for helping me make the tough decisions needed to better my life and be a more carefree, confident and happier person (:
She has been great!
I love working with Christina. There have been times where she gives me homework and I struggle to keep up with it. Instead of feeling judged or like I've failed, she always turns it into a learning opportunity and I way for me to understand more about myself. At the same time she challenges me to question my thoughts and actions so I understand why I struggle or thrive. I always come away from our sessions feeling accomplished and like it was time well spent.
