Hello! I am a licensed mental health counselor with 3 years experience working in community mental health. I have worked with adults who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions and relationship concerns. I have experience with military and veterans, and I have also worked with offenders who are having a hard time reintegrating back into the community.
My approach is very eclectic; I like to tailor to each individual client based on what your needs are at the time. I also understand that needs change over time, and I always make sure that I am adapting and adjusting my intervention to meet you where you are in your process. I believe in being transparent and non judgmental. I like to stress the fact that your journey is unique to you, and that everyone progresses through therapy at their own pace. Modalities that I typically use are cognitive behavioral, rational emotive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, existential, psychodynamic and client centered. I also utilize animal assisted interventions in my private practice, and can be of assistance if you are considering obtaining an emotional support, therapy or service animal.
I understand that reaching out for help in your most vulnerable time can feel scary and uncomfortable, so I am happy that you decided to take this first step towards recovery. I am looking forward to working with you!

Christina has been so helpful and so kind so far, I feel truly lucky to have been paired with her
Christina, is responsive, passionate, and understands how to work to give your the best practices and coping mechanisms that she can! I look forward to getting to know her better and working with her in the future.
Christina is timely and professional. She checks up on me when I haven't spoken in a while and has been real and supportive throughout my therapy. I'd recommend her highly.
Christina Wassenhove is by far one of the best out there. Her relaxed approach and ability to understand what's going on with an objective view is refreshing and amazing. She's very kind and gentle, giving a comfortable experience.
I am new to BetterHelp and am really liking it so far. Christina is my second counselor and I am happy that I was matched with her. We have only had a couple of sessions, but the advice she has given me has been great. I highly recommend Christina as a counselor! She’s great, even for newbies like me.
