About Me

Greetings! I have a Master's degree in Clinical Counseling from The University of Northern Colorado (CACREP accredited) and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia, Colorado, and Michigan. I am certified through the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) as well as a National Certified Counselor (#316572). I am currently finishing my dissertation for my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at The University of Northern Colorado.

I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) as well as a member of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES). I adhere to the ACA Code of Ethics (2014), the Guidelines for Supervisors published by ACES, and the NBCC Code of Ethics.

My clinical experience ranges from community mental health settings to University counseling centers. I have enjoyed working with adolescents, adults, groups, and couples. In my doctoral training, I have gained valuable experience in clinical supervision as well as educating new counselors in both coursework and psychotherapy.

I consider myself an ally and advocate for the LGBTQIQA community and enjoy working with diverse populations and issues. I work in a humanistic style of psychotherapy that provides space to try new ways of thinking and feeling while confronting the issues that are influencing your life.

I'm excited to meet you!

Written by D.A. on Apr 17, 2018 after counseling with Christina for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, and self esteem

I was very lucky to be matched with Christina to help me through a difficult time in my life based around an unhealthy relationship/breakup. She helped me to realize my worth, rebuild my confidence, learn what my acceptable relationship boundaries are and to know that whatever happens in my life with respect to relationships, I will be OK. Christina is more than a counselor. She is kind, a great listener and makes you feel very comfortable to say anything you need to. She has become a friend that I will miss dearly when my counseling is complete. Christina always made me feel like she was available whenever I needed her. Quick to respond and check in if I hadn't messaged her in a day or two. I would recommend her to my family and friends in a heartbeat. Thank you Christina and BetterHelp!

I've been working with Christina for such a long time, and I really enjoy it. How difficult it's been to share something in the beginning, and how different I see my first messages now. Christina is really supportive, patient, attentive and professional. I wish everyone could do counseling at least at some times in their lives. It helps so much and gives you a completely different perspective on things. Thank you so much!

I talked with Christina for a few months. She was the best counselor that I've had. She’s a great listener and great adviser and she did help and support me more than as a counselor. I was so comfortable talking with her and showed my emotion and things that I had in my mind. I’m sad to stop counseling with her cos of our financial reason. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great counselor with lots of love and care. Thanks Christina!

Christina has been phenomenal. Beyond recently discovering I am transgender, I've had a variety of anxiety and depression issues my entire adult life. Christina has been instrumental in my transition and incredibly helpful in putting my life back together. She has an uncanny ability to know what topics need focus vs my tendency to "wander". Her skill in navigating issues we face as transgender individuals cannot be overstated, she is amazing.

I have already recommended Better Help to online trans individuals and I would specifically recommend Christina in a heartbeat.

Christina is fantastic. Simple as that

Written by R.O. on Dec 20, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 10 months on issues concerning lgbt

Christina is great. She responds and helps work out the options I face with support when were both in agreement. She also points out possible consequences sometimes I don't recognize. I'm learning to put my past in the past. I'm moving forward living my life how I want. Sometime Christina gives me the confidence to take steps I know I need to take to reach happiness.

Written by J.U. on Dec 11, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, family, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

I believe whole-heartedly in counseling. Being able to use a resource like BetterHelp has been instrumental in my personal, emotional, professional, and psychological growth. Christina Thomas is one of the best counselors I have ever had, and that is really saying something because I have had a lot! She is kind, understanding, supportive... and yet she has never stopped herself from telling me that I am wrong, that my thinking is skewed, or that I am simply being a little whiny! She is exactly the counselor I need in my life! I am so beyond grateful that words alone cannot truly express how thankful I am. She is an incredible person and an incredible counselor, and I want to thank her and BetterHelp from the very depth of my soul.

Written by L.I. on Dec 05, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 3 months on issues concerning relationship, family, and self esteem

I have been talking to Christina for about 4 months now. She has really helped me through some very difficult and complex feelings and situations. I've enjoyed our sessions (though sometimes they are tough) and I feel that I could share anything with her without judgement. She's incredibly professional and has provided great advice and support.

Written by V.L. on Oct 28, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, and grief

Christina is an incredible listener, and provides thoughts which are actually impactful (and not fluff that you read in blogs like "time will heal all wounds"). I would recommend her, absolutely.

From my first live chat session with Christina she put me at ease. I felt heard and understood with no judgement. I look forward to every live session that I have with Christina and I love the security of knowing that I can message her at any time with any issues or thoughts.

Written by L.U. on Oct 06, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and trauma and abuse

My sister recommended for me to get BetterHelp, I was very worried in the begging and unfortunately got a councillor that I couldn't connect with and didn't take to her way of help. Though extremely happy that I continued and changed because Christina is fantastic and always seems to know what to say for me to understand the situation further. Thank you Christina!

I gave Christina 10-out-of-10 because she deserves that.

Written by K.A. on Aug 28, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, and intimacy-related

This is my first time doing counseling and in a very short time, Christina has helped me work through a lot of things and she does it so easily. She's a great listener, she's very thoughtful and considerate of my feelings, and helps me navigate through my thinking. I would highly recommend her!

Written by K.R. on Jun 20, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, trauma and abuse, and grief

After seeking out many counselors, Christina came through. I have a very complicated situation and psyche. She researches, she makes every effort, goes above and beyond. I especially recommend her for those of high IQ who have had trouble finding counselors that can speak on their level. She may not be a physicist, but she will be able to grasp what you are talking about and respond with intelligence. She is diligent, filled with both reason and compassion.

Written by C.H. on Jun 01, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, parenting, and self esteem

Such an amazing person. Has helped me more than anyone I have talked to regarding my anxiety and depression. I never could have imagined I would be connected with such a great fit for my mental health needs.

Extremely satisfied with her counselling!

Written by L.I on Mar 09, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and family

Christina is wonderful. I first saw her when I was in desperate need of help. She calmed my nerves and help me look to the positive instead of the negative emotions I was experiencing while validating my feelings at the same time. She showed patience and kindness. I am thankful for her and have since come back and asked for her as my counselor and no one else.

Written by V.E on Mar 09, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, grief, and intimacy-related

Written by H.E on Feb 09, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Christina has helped me massively in just a short amount of time. Having someone to talk to who does not judge you and who encourages you to speak, is great. I feel comfortable which means I don't mind talking about subjects which I feel others may judge me on. Christina has been fantastic in helping me identify my anxiety and triggers.

Written by J.E on Feb 02, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and anger

Christina is great - she is non judgemental and gives me the space I need to discuss my issues. I like her way of suggesting approaches - she isn't pushy and let's me lead things.

Written by K.I on Jan 29, 2017 after counseling with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

Written by N.A on Dec 28, 2016 after counseling with Christina for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Christina is an awesome counselor. She is a great listener and is really good at getting to the heart of the matter. She is very flexible and available to work around your schedule. I highly recommend her.

Written by L.O on Dec 27, 2016 after counseling with Christina for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Christina is so supportive. What I appreciate most is that she does not tell me what to do or how to feel, rather she uses reflective questions to support me in the processing of information. She communicates with me when she has limited availability and checks on me if I don't contact her for a day or two.
