I have come back to Cristina on and off depending on my needs. Currently, I am so happy that Cristina is so helpful and understands my issues quickly. She is amazing in giving me a better understanding of my situation and shows me how to see it from a different perspective. I greatly appreciate Cristina's expertise. I feel very supported by her and always feel more motivated to live life.

Cristina is one of the best people I know. She is completely in my corner while still challenging me to find new ways to think about myself. Her approach to therapy is based in a deep understanding of people and our quirks. So grateful to have found her!

Talking with Cristina makes me feel safe but most importantly truly heard! She always remembers the details of my multitude of stories and never lets a session go to waste. I always leave the sessions feeling recharged and with very constructive points to think about in the week ahead. I would truly recommend her to anyone that wants to start this journey!

So glad I found Christina, she’s a very skilled therapist and really gives me the feeling that she’s there for me. I feel like I can trust her and she doesn’t judge me at all. I recommend 10/10 :)
