Cristina has really helped me find ways to cope with everyday stressors.
Cristina is so wonderful. She’s so skilled and perceptive. I feel I can share without judgement. Her insights have enlightened me about my habits, my reactions, my patterns. I’m very appreciative of her and the time she gives me! I highly recommend her!
Cristina has helped me feel at ease, empowered and dedicated to healing inward.
I’ve been seeing Cristina for about a month now and I’ve already seen some a dramatic change in how I approach life. She really has given me tools to improve my quality of life.
My therapist Cristina is so wonderful and caring. She always listens intently and offers great advice. It has been a really great experience and she has really helped me.
Cristina is very caring and just lovely to talk with. She's helped me process my grief and supported me during changed in my life. Highly recommend.
Kind and caring. Great ideas and input
I have only been with Cristina for a couple of weeks but she has already helped me tremendously. We clicked very easily and I feel like she listens to me and hears my concerns. She shows she cares and offers proactive advice, which is what I needed.
Cristina was so so helpful. She helped me create healthy routines, practices, and was so kind the whole time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone struggling or even if you don’t really know where to start with therapy.
She’s fantastic. Prompt, thoughtful, very helpful. She’s the right blend of kindness and honesty. Very happy.
I have currently completed my first week of therapy, it has taken time for me to get to the point where I actually take action and start therapy that I’ve known I’ve needed. I’ve never been in therapy before but for sure feel I selected the right person, to help me heal in the way that would be best for me. I thank Christina for her support during this time and knowledge and understanding of what she is doing. If you’re needing someone that will be gentle with you and understanding with the fact that everyone heals differently highly suggest it. When you feel like giving up, give her a chance to help you through your process ✨
I'm 25 years old and within 4 months, Cristina managed to help me more than anyone else did my entire life. She Helped me discover who I am, and helped me find answers to questions that I've been asking for years, she supported me when I was feeling depressed and had suicidal thoughts, she is very kind and supportive, we met once a week every week for the past four months, and she gave me more time when I needed it, I am very thankful for her for all she has done for me, and most of all, I am thankful for the fact that she helped me develop coping skills for my condition, I am not sure whether I should share my diagnosis or not but I will anyway, I've been diagnosed with GAD ,PTSD, bipolar and asperger's, so in conclusion, yes I definitely recommend Cristina 10/10 .
Right from the moment I got introduced to her, she had a very warm presence. She’s patient and actively listens. She’s adamant about finding the best approach for you and makes sure you know she’s there for whatever you may need.
Blessed to come across her.
Cristina is the absolute best therapist I have ever had. Being in and out of therapy since I was 12, I was under the assumption that therapy just wasn't for me. I felt as though no matter how many therapist I met with, they all said the same things, used the same methods, and I never felt improvement. This past year with the pandemic really sent me on a spiral and brought up a lot of emotions and bad habits that I had worked on suppressing for so many years. I knew I had to start the process of therapy again no matter how much I didn't want to. My friend recommended BetterHelp and after months of hesitation I finally signed up. After meeting Cristina for only 30 minutes I knew that this time around was going to be very different, and I wish I had started sooner. Cristina is attentive, informative, and cares so deeply. She's helped me in ways that I truly thought nobody could. I started looking at the world and myself with a different perspective, started working on goals, and practiced exercises weekly that actually helped me in positive ways. I could go on and on about how much I appreciate Cristina and how grateful I am that I started this journey with BetterHelp... all I can say is that if you've felt as though therapy has not worked for you in the past or if you're nervous to start, take the leap and do it. The best thing I ever did for myself was start this journey with Cristina.
Cristina is so caring and it’s so easy to open up to her even with the most difficult topics to talk about. I know, I can become a better version of myself with Cristina by my side.
Cristina is by far the most amazing counselor I have connected with, on BetterHelp but also compared to in-person therapy! She genuinely cares about the people she connects with, and prioritizes their needs above anything else. I'd highly recommend her to anyone seeking counseling!
Cristina has been a huge help and brought a lot of peace for me in a time when I'm experiencing anxiety and sadness. She is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and has great insight.
She is amazing!
Christina is great, service is just a little too expensive, I’ll be canceling soon but it was a good introduction to therapy
Cristina is so kind and thoughtful! I immediately felt comfortable with her and she was very helpful to me.
Cristina has been a great outlet and therapist to speak with on a weekly basis. She listens and asks thought provoking questions to challenge me and take an objective perspective. It has been just what I needed!
Very attentive and sounds extremely well versed based on our first conversation. I love that she has a plan for me. In my prior therapy experiences I'm not sure if there was a plan in place for me to work with.
So far so good! I can tell she cares and is attentive!
I only had one session with Cristina, but I really valued the time I got with her. She's very friendly, understanding and easy to talk with, which makes opening up a little less scary.
Excellent person to speak with. Professional yet empathetic and kind. Pushes you towards goals and real benefit towards increasing your own joy.
Cristina is very attentive, understanding and responsive. I trust her expertise and I look forward to getting more help from Cristina.
