About Me

Hello! My name is Cristin Small and I have worked in mental health for over 20 years. I am a Licensed Mental Health Professional originally from Canada, currently living in The Sunshine State of Florida. I have worked with clients of all ages and from all walks of life. In my practice I make it a point to see all of my clients as individuals with their own strengths and personalities. I have a true passion for helping others heal and find their love for life once again. I have most recently worked with women experiencing PTSD and living with the effects of trauma, and have found them to be some of the most resilient and determined people I've ever met. I have an open-minded approach with my clients and I believe we are all experts in our own lives. I am able to build a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and have been told I am very easy to talk to. I would never say that therapy is easy but I can say that it will be worth it. You are worth it!

Cristin is helping me so much. In just a few sessions I have been able to apply the advice she has given. She is wonderful and would recommend her to anyone

Cristin is nothing short of wonderful. Not only professionally but as a human being too. It’s very rare to find a therapist you mesh with well. Let alone find one who doesn’t just listen but she engages in everything you say which is really nice, the feedback is astounding. I’ve struggled with many things throughout my life so unloading that onto someone has gotta be a lot but I’ll tell ya, she is a trooper! I could not recommend her more!!!

She gets me and helps me not get fixated on the bumps in road so I can enjoy the journey of life. Kristen is also working with me on my behavior and triggers due mental, emotional, and physical abuse I have endured. I’m making amazing progress.

Cristin is great! I’m really happy to talk to her every week.

Cristin is absolutely wonderful! I came to her with a pretty good idea of what was wrong, but needed help getting past a few road blocks to build a healthier, happier life. We have only had two sessions, but we have already accomplished what I expected to take months or even years. I am blown away at what a positive impact she has made on my mental and physical health. She is an active listener and provides supportive feedback without judgement or prying. I feel more comfortable in my own skin than ever before. I have the energy and desire to start exercising again, and I cannot wait for more good things to come! This is hands down, the best thing I have ever done for myself. If you are considering talking to someone but have hesitations, know that she makes it an easy and pleasant experience.

Cristin is honestly a God send, I have never met a therapist with whom I get along with better. Sometimes I go into sessions not knowing what to talk to about but Cristin always zero's in on exactly what I need to talk about and it's amazing. She's helping me to become more confident in myself and also to become a healthier and happier person while diligently helping me to confront my fears and work through my mental illnesses. I'm extremely lucky to have her as my therapist and have nothing but great thing to say about Better Help's matching system!

Great Counselor! helped me through a stressful week and learn more about myself and my childhood.

Written by S.A. on Nov 30, 2020 after therapy with Cristin for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Cristin is kind, compassionate, and an incredible listener. She makes me feel safe and supported. I look forward to our weekly sessions and already feel like I am making progress on my goals even though e have only had two sessions thus far.

Work with me!
