About Me

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to study psychology, Marriage and Family in particular, and eventually led to a full-time career. 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!

I truly care for all my clients and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. Since 2016, I have worked with a variety of clients dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives and continue to serve those in the community while continuing to remain knowledgeable of new approaches and tools that could be implemented for success!

Christina is an excellent therapist. I previously had a bad experience with therapy and was afraid to try it again but I am so happy I did. She is very professional, caring and smart.

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.

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 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

Written by V.A. on Feb 20, 2021 after counseling with Christina for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

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.

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!

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 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.
