I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. As a military spouse I have lived all over the country, including Alaska. I have lived in Texas since 2007.
I have worked with clients in residential drug and alcohol substance abuse centers, with outpatient Servicemembers from all 5 branches of the military on a military installation, to include military Widows. I also helped many people who have multiple mental health issues and anxiety and depression, my specialty area is grief and loss. I have also worked with victims of crimes and abuses ranging in ages 3-65.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines multicultural counseling with a client centered approach to include client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy.
I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I will encourage you to create a journal as well as a resource binder during therapy to be utilized outside of therapy. The more you put into therapy the more you will receive from it. You are worth investing in yourself!
As a Christian I also incorporate a faith based approach with my counseling and may refer you to specific areas of the Bible to consider reading should I feel it would be beneficial to the situation you are dealing with. I welcome all faiths and no faiths and will respect where you are coming from either way.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I have been very blessed with my sessions with Christina. She is a great listener and offers encouragement and support in a time of uncertainty.
I was unsure about starting with BetterHelp and then I had my first session with Christina and I knew I made the right choice! She is a great listener and made me feel comfortable right from the start. I am happy to have her as my counselor and continue growing with her help!
Christina seems to read me so well. Things I don’t notice she does!
Ms Christina listens and provides solid Biblical Support. She can relate and has a personal story to validate her guidance.
