Cristina has been wonderful over the last few months. She has been open and attentive to whatever I bring to the table each week. She'll take me on a scientific deep dive into reasons why I might be stuck, and always makes a point to affirm my progress. I especially appreciate how she follows up on whatever we talked about the week before. Thanks, Cristina!

She is a great listener and I appreciate how she can go deeper into an area if I want but will hold back if she knows I'm not ready for that.
