Christina has been one of the most important people in my corner. I began therapy about a year ago, and since meeting her at such a trifling time in my life; I honestly couldn’t have handled or gone through all those different emotions in such a short time, without her. Yes, she is a therapist and she’s great at her job, but my sessions don’t feel like sessions, it’s just a comfortable, common space, where I’m heard and I feel heard and understood. That’s the biggest part, when you don’t always understand yourself, or you don’t think nobody else does. Once in awhile, you meet someone who understands you better than you think you do. And it’s really, really nice. She’s that person for me.

I have worked with quite a few mental health professionals in my life, none have been more effective than Christina. Working with her has been hugely impactful. I have been dealing with some extremely difficult situations and she has guided me through in a way I could never imagine doing on my own.

Christina is an amazing, insightful therapist. She has helped me and my family address and work through long-standing issues in a very short amount of time. Her intuition and the guidance she provided were extremely helpful as we worked on issues in between sessions. I’m grateful to have been matched with her and greatly appreciate all she has done to support my family.

Christina is wonderful. I was apprehensive about staring therapy again after having lackluster experiences with therapists in the past but she was patient and considerate of my concerns and worked with me to provide the support and help I was looking for. She's very experienced in a wide variety of areas - I feel like no matter what I came to her with, no matter how unrelated or different it was to topics we had discussed previously, she knew exactly how to guide me through it. I can't recommend her enough.
