I appreciate my therapist immensely; I actually look forward to talking to them. They make me feel comfortable and don’t judge me or question my beliefs or opinions. Even when I know I’m reacting poorly, they help me through it without making me feel guilty. It’s a slow process because I can be pretty stubborn, and they don’t even make me feel bad for that.

I’ve always been really afraid of therapy. I had a bad experience years ago with a therapist. But Crista has made me feel so comfortable and seen. They’re honestly incredible and I can’t recommend them enough. I’ve only been in therapy with them for a few weeks now, but I’ve learned so much about myself and explored my emotions and thoughts more than I thought possible.

Crista is an amazing therapist. With a delightful personality, honest yet affirming attitude, she has provided the heavily needed safe place for me. Would highly recommend her for any topic of therapy! I've already learned so much from our meetings. I'm so thankful for her in ways I could never convey adequately.
